    You are referring to the stock Camaro/Firebird 16's right?
    If so, yes, they should fit.

    I don't have the new wheels yet, but my 18" x 9" and 19" x 10" from my C6 Vette did not fit in the rear, so I planned on selling them and buying a 16" or 17" set to use on track. HOWEVER, I just learned that there are spacers available. I think I need the 1 1/2" spacers???? Does anyone know for sure?

    16 or 17 from what?
    I have a 97 that I put the 98-02 front brakes on and they fit fine with my stock 16x8's. that is why I used them insted of the C5 brakes. C5's would not fit with out a little grinding and grindging on an aluminum caliper didn't sit well with me.

    A 16 or 17 Camaro wheel. However, the spacers seem like a better way to go, since it will cost me a lot less. Can anyone confirm that the 1 1/2" spacers are the way to go? I have heard both 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" would work?
