Does anyone know if there is a company out there that makes wheels that are nearly identical to the stock GT wheels, but in bigger sizes like 17 or 18”? I want to maintain the stock appearance but I plan to upgrade to larger brakes.

Try to find some from the Beretta GT. Go onto the Beretta forum, and if you can put up with them, ask if any are available.

Grand Ams also had a lace wheel style in a larger size. I believe the Beretta wheels were 17" I had a set of black lace 14 inch on my first 85GT and they were made by Enkei.

Dodge Caravans also had a similar wheel.

The Beretta GTZ rims are only 16" so I would think the GT rims would not be bigger than that. Any 16" or bigger rim should accommodate a bigger brake system just fine.

Indeed, Beretta GT wheels are 15".

I found a lot of OG (Original Goods) Sans cross lace style when doing an image search. Never heard of them.

Didn't the later year Berettas and Grand Ams have larger diameter wheels?

You can do the Lebaron rotor and s10 calipar brake upgrade and keep your stock rims. The only mod needed to accommodate the s10 calipars under the stock rims is a little grinding and smoothing of the calipar surface. You have to remove the 2 nubs on the top of the caliper. If you want pics on how to do it just pm me.
