polished or matte black

the matte black and polished 16x8s only come in 4.437

15x8 is 3.313 (matte black and polished)
15x10 is 3.625 (polished)

thats it

for a 16x8 wheel lowest backspacing is 4.438 for the classic II but I think that would be fine.

You can also go with a 15" for less backspacing, the 15x8 has 3.3ish, and the 15x10 is 3.625 so would stick out quite a bit more

and they have them in black now too..

Yeah, 4 7/16" backspacing 0 offset is your only choice in 16x8.

they dont state backspacing just offset so you have to do alittle math or consult a chart. but you want like -6 offset for a 16x8

you'll have to wet sand, steel wool scuff, and polish them every spring and during the nice weather you should clean em once a week to avoid pitting. next set i might just get them clear coated

I would save the money until the next time you need tires, and then just get a 15" rim. I was pricing out BFG KO's, and I could get 15" Soft 8's and 30x9.5R15 tires for the same price as I would have paid for just 245/75 tires for my stock 16" rims. I ended up getting some cheaper Dunlops as a birthday present so this plan never went through, but the rims would have paid for themselves, and saved me several hundred the next time I needed tires.

I know Classic II's are quite a bit more expensive than Cragar's, and I don't know what tire size you're running, but it is something to check out before making a purchase.

cragars also weigh double or more than a classic 2. I have a 33x12.5R15 on a soft 8 and it weighs much more than my 33x12.5 on a classic 2

I recommend going ahead and picking up some Busch Super Shine Aluminum Polish and a Meguiar's Polishing cone. DO NOT USE WESLEY'S tire cleaner. about the only thing you can use to clean your tires with is Simple Green. anything else will pit aluminum. I also recommend keeping stockers for winter wheels

I spent 8 hours a month ago polishing my wheels, it sucks
