those are 16"x6.5" and I bought a set of those with caps for $120. I sold them for $440 shipped to Minneapolis (where I bought them).

What'* funny is, if you ask GM, a Torque Star is the lightweight thin 5-spoke wheels the 97-03 GP got.

How we adoped the name, I don't know.

We probably figured it was close enough. Wasn't there a website that someone posted showing the actual GM names for all the various rims?
