Subject says it all.

I'm ordering a set of GTA 16 x 8 rims f & R used.Whats the best way to install it on a 86 T-Type.What size spacers do you reccomend i use for the rear set?Do i put the fronts on the front of the car and the rears with the spacers on the rear?Or is it reverse?I will be using 245/50/16's all around.Also the car is lowered 1 1/2 in the front and 3/4 in the rear.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You

You'll have to install the GTA rear wheel on your front with a 7/32 spacer. That's about the max spacer you should install without putting longer wheel studs on. You may still get some wheel rub on the front on a fully locked turn but it's not bad. Good luck.

If you haven"t ordered the wheels yet then just order four GTA fronts and they will go right on without any spacers or modification.Did this with the same sized tires used on the GNX with out any problems.

I'm getting the rims used so i don't have a choice to get 4 fronts.

Thanks for the advice anyway.
