Classic industries has a 25% off sale, so I bought another set of 4 16X8 GTA's for $580 shipped ($720 - $144)

It's hard to find a lighter 16" wheel than these and it almost doesn't make sense to refinish old ones at this price. Sell the old, buy new.

Damn it, man! Why ya gotta be tempting a brutha?!?!
For the record: what is required to make these fit again? And which do I want: the 0 or 2mm offset?

Here are some fitment rules for 16X8" GTA's:

1) Zero offset "Fronts" fit all around on most G-bodies. 225-245 in front, 255 in back. Wider tires might need some modding with zero offset "Fronts"s
2) If you have larger brakes in front - Blazer, BAER 12", B-body/1LE (LS1 12"/Corvette 12"/13" don't really fit) you want to run the F-body "Rear"s (+17 offset) in front as "Front"s in front need more inner fender mods than "Rear"s.
3) GTA's may need a shim spacer for some brakes (especially with new brake pads) because the caliper face can rub the wheel web.
4) With 1" wheel adapters, "Rear"s work perfect in back and should have enough frame room for a 275.
5) Running "Rear"s in front puts the inner rim lip close to the outer tie rod and some trimming of the tie rod may be needed.
6) running "Rear"s in front can result in some A-Arm to Wheel rub when turning at some ride heights if using tall upper ball joints. Tall lower BJ is no issue, trimming of the A-arm should fix the Tall Upper BJ issue. Check the full range of wheel motion with the spring out to check for rub.
