Hi Ray,

Look for Toyota "AE86" Corolla wheels as well, the backspace matches the Corvair better.

The wheels I actually like are the "modular" type with the round holes all the way around, and the (7?) spoke aluminum mags that are popular as aftermarket wheels on the Z cars and such.. the ones so common back in the 70's.  I see wheels of the latter type available for just over $75 each new on ebay....  so I might go that route if nothing comes up.. but then I'll need to get some used tires to put on them!  I love the cheap chrome steel modulars you can get new for $50 each, but I've had three sets before and trying to keep them from surface rusting is a real pain... requires not letting them ever go more than a few days without a good cleaning..  based on that experience I think I'll go with aluminum wheels this time for sure.
