I know it's not suspension related, but would you guys buy this wheels?
I couldn't get much info on the GP racing wheels, so if anyone has any info, let me know.

the wheel is 16x7. And he doesn't know the offset. I have asked him to measure it...so let's see.

Looks like shitty FWD offset. You'll need like a 10mm spacer to clear. I'm not fond of 7inch wide rims. I like 8. But then you run into fitment issues in the front. blah blah blah. I'm not good with wheels.

Offset should be written on the back of the rim. Shouldn't be hard to find really.

I'm going to pass on the wheels, he said the offset was 42mm. Not sure if thats accurate or not.
