Stock alloy offset

I'm looking at buying some used Procomp steelies off a D2. They are listed as 16 x 8 with a 4.25 offset. Compared to the stock alloys where will this move my tires? In a bit? out a bit? about the same? Offsets confuse the hell out of me everytime. I believe that the stock alloys are 16 x7 with a 5.375 offset. There should be no problem moving over my 285/75R16s. I'm just confused about offsets and want to know if I'll be trimming even more fender flare to get them in there. Just to be sure, the lug pattern is the same on a D2 as on a D-90, correct?

I thought D2s had a differnt lug pattern? THats why everyone with D2s can't run the same wheels that we do.

Yep, I finally found the info. D2s run a 5x120mm pattern. A D-90/D1 pattern is 5x6.5. Forget that idea I guess.

You could go with an adapter to make them fit.

Nah. If I'm gonna lay out for new wheels I want them to be the right ones. I don't want to 'make' them work. So, anyone got a set of 5 16" steels they want to unload?
