Large Ralley Wheels on '83 El Camino

Does anyone know of 17/18/19/20 inch steel ralley wheels for Chevy / Corvette?

I know it'd be easier to get mag-type wheels in those dimensions, but STEALTH is far more important where I live / car is parked.

Car theft and WHEEL THEFT is particularly high in my area, and the vehicle is usually parked on the street. Wheels with lots of "bling" are lucrative targets to the thugs and gangs.

Soooooo, I could still run my larger wheel diameter handling tires, but on boring uninteresting rally type wheels, that are not particularly eye-catching to would be thieves [eg: we have ALWAYS turned our white letters to the inside, so as to not attract attention]. Got it?

Please don't suggest wheel locks, cuz - as a mechanic - I found all versions very easy to "crack" without the keys. At dealerships, and independent shops, all of us mechanics knew how to get around the locks when our universal keys were unavailable.

Lastly, any steel wheels that are LIGHTWEIGHT???

Thanks everyone! amir
