I have a 2001 Trans Am Firebird convertible fire engine red. I want to put new rims on it to customize it out.  Any suggestions?  I can't find anything real sharp.  Someone told me to do black rims with Chrome accents. Any ideas?

HI:

“RIM IT UP”

It is really up to you only you can decide what Rims will look good on your ride / In my opinion the stock Rims are the best because that are the GM. Original rims that came with the car, they will in time; maintain the cars value as the car gets older / however if you want to change the Rims try Year-One for starters.

At: www.yearone.com or
 
Classic Industries At: www.classicindustries.com

You may also want to consider optional GM. Rims for the Firebird // Trans-Am /
GM. Will often have different stile Rims to choose from for the Firebird / Trans-AM     

 Hope This Helps  ;D

I bought mine with Moda rims but I notice a big difference between mine (97) and a friends (93).  My tires are thinner so I feel alot of bumps and shakes from the road.  Just somthing to keep in mind  ;) .

There are a ton of wheels out for your car.....it just depends on what you like on there....I run 18" AZA Z2's on my 99 and 15" centerline warriors for the track...the 01 has 17" chrome ZO6's....here's a place that has a bunch of pictures of different setups :http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=17
