Not quite the same, but I've got '69 Chevelle SS mags (in 14") on mine that are pretty similar but are matte spokes instead of chrome. I like the look personally, but I don't think I've got any pictures I can share directly. I'll see if I can get something.

It ain't much off the line, but it's nice on the highway

See if thins link works...

The center caps weren't installed, and we later freshened up the inner fenders that made it look a little more filled out, but that's still 14" rims so they will always look a little small. My planned upgrade is a set of Year One aluminum Mags. Not sure if this link is exactly the right BS and width, but gets the point across.

Part of the price difference is the kit includes the center caps and lugnuts etc., but yeah, those look like a better price for sure. Similar look though, I definitely like any of them.

Here's another option - American Racing VN501s. The pricing on this site is pretty good, comes with caps, free lugs, and free shipping.

These are similar to a combination of the Buick and Salt Flat wheels. They're on sale in the link below and pricing is similar to the VN501s (only 7 and 8" wide in 17s, but has a 18x9.5)
