I have 1" clearance, so if I increase the rim width 1/2" (1/4" on each side) that still leaves 3/4" for more offset/wider tire. I just really like to keep things tucked in tight under the car )

OH, I hear what you are saying now Jim. I thought you meant you wanted to push it out more haha.

Thanks for clearing that up. That 295 would be some serious meat on a 9" rim. I only went 255/40 R19 with my rear tires, I was scared it would rub.

Yeah, he is way ahead of the game in pretty much every area, but I should be getting a couple strides closer to you guys in the coming months.

I hear you F355, I hear you. I just sit and look at choptop pictures ALL THE TIME. To me, nothing adds to a Fiero like the perfect set of wheels / tires, and a chop top. Those pretty much make a Fiero unique even amoung other Fieros.

Took a couple Saturday during a quick test run around the block - still in the camera. Chasing 1 brake line fitting seeper. Let's see - 450 ft lbs of torque with fat sticky tires - you wouldn't be trying to encourage tranny busting behavior now would you? Didn't really do any high G loads yet. I'll have it out this weekend for testing

Those are the two most flattering shots of that car. The front styling is not to my taste, but I love the way it looks from the front wheel on back.

That car started out as a Red 85 GT. We put the late model GT body on it when we did the chop.

Not to put anyone else's work off, but I was hoping you'd show up

I just checked my email, and unless you sent me "Re: your account urgent tamale aset90xjv super", I didn't get it.

you know what - I just sent myself an email, and didn't get it... please stand by, technical difficulties.

edit again: nope, mine just came in. Try resending it.

I was looking for a good before and after of my chop top. But I must have been in a hurry unloading and loading it onto the trailer both times as I don't have any good shots. And it seems most of my pre-chop shots are of the passenger side and the post chops are driver's side.

This was the best I could do with the car in the same condition.
