Pull off a wheel, check backspacing. Look at said prostars, check backspacing.

typical backspace for Gbody is centered in the wheel (8" wheel, 4-4.5" backspace)

For most F-body from what I know the backspace is at least 5.5-6.5 on an 8" wheel.

ok official research reveals:

5.5 backspace on 8" wheel

7.5 backspace on 10" wheel and run whatever tire you want.

The Gbody ones will look gay on your car. I'd probably buy them though for my car

If they don't stick out of the wheel well, they will be flush. Not a good look

They ended up being weld draglites 15x10 and 15x4 front with brand new never used mickey et street byass ply 26/11.5 tires and the fronts are 205 radials but i payed less for all 4 wheels and tires than the rear tires alone are worth so thats a score in my book
