My last truck (Dodge) came with 17", but they were required to clear the larger calipers and rotors that came from the change to the 3rd gen truck (in other words, 16" wouldn't fit).
Does the same logic apply to the GM? It pains me to spend $400 on a set of aftermarket rims when I see 16" OEMs for under $150 at times.

Old 8 lug wheels will not work on your 2012. Most 8 lug wheels have a 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern, 2011/2012 2500HD's have 8 on 180mm. I spent months looking for winter wheels with 8x180mm with the correct offset that didn't look like cheap ricer wheels. I ended up getting another set of stock forged aluminum take offs from E-bay. They were only $420 for all four, plus shipping of course. These wheels are over $1,000 ea at the dealer. I don't know if I can post an ebay link, but if you do a search on ebay you will find the seller from Salt Lake City, Utah who resells take-off wheels for very reasonable prices.

There is a set right near me, alloys with 1k miles on them, tires included...$900. I'm really considering it, but I'd rather have a set of painted steel.
