Default guess wheel size? pic inside (79 monte with boss 338)

came across the attached pictures some time ago and really like the look. I remember I found the pics on CL the car was for sale there. I know the pics are very blurry... however I'm not sure who's car it is and I'm trying to determine the rim / wheel size. looks like 20"? any thoughts or suggestions? thx in advance.

I just googled around and found this:

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/312977...et-monte-carlo

"American Racing Thrust M, 20x10 rear and 20x8.5 front"

so I photoshoped one of his pics (lowered the car):



so now I really think the wheels in pic 1 & 2 are 20"

I also thought about the 18/20 combo. now I really think I want to get 18x8 fronts and 20x10 rears. but I think I'll get the Coys C5 because the 20x10 version got a deeper lip than the Boss 338.

here some other G-Bodys with the 18/20 combo:









I really like this (you can see the deep lip or the rears):




here's my photoshop of that last pic (lowered front):

This how a malibu would look with me and George in it . Who needs airbags? Definitely a nice car though.
