Well, since 185/80r13's are impossible to find, I'm looking to change wheels.

I've been eyeing a few wheels. These, these or these. (All three are goo.gl shorteners pointing at TireRack, since tire-rack links don't work in the URL tag for some reason.)
They're all in my price range, they're all 16's (lowest I'll go because brakes are in my future) and they all look... decent in my opinion.

Now for my question: What other cars fit the Fiero bolt pattern that might have wider tires/wheels? Am thinking of going up to 235's on all four corners, but can't think of any wheel/tire that fits that thought.

You can usually do searches just for rims that fit a specific bolt pattern.

I like the 2nd ones (Sparco). They remind me of Enkei RC-G4s which I've always liked.

A lot of the bolt pattern lists haven't been updated but check your local Craigslist for Scion TC or FR-S wheels. Both are 5x100 pattern, and since owners of both of those cars usually switch to an aftermarket wheel and tire combination you can typically find pull-offs with under 10,000 miles on them relatively cheap (as in the $200-$500 range). The only issue is with the TC wheels is you have to enlarge the hub bore to clear the Fiero hubs, and I'm not sure if that's the case with the FR-S/BRZ wheels but I would imagine it's likely so.

Look around for other Pontiac rims off Grand Am's, Sunfire's, Grand Prix's, etc. All those cars had a trim level with 16" rims and most were pretty good looking too. Saw a Fiero with Sunfire GT rims on it not too long ago and I thought it looked pretty darned good.

You'll have offsets and such to deal with as well as bolt patterns too.

Maybe really old grand ams, but anything more modern - that came with 16" wheels - has a different lug pattern. (5x115mm). Same goes for the Grand Prix. Sunfire/Cavalier. I have '99/'00 Cavalier Z24 16" 5-spoke rims on mine. They're only 6.5" wide though, if I remember correctly; you can just barely squeeze a 225 tire on 'em. If you're going 235, you'll need 7" at least. Then you'll need to consider the offset because they might rub.

One note on the above listing. Sebring convertible ONLY is correct, any Sebring coupe or sedan will not...they have a larger pattern. I drove all the way to West Virginia to pick up a set of new take offs from a sedan. Got home with them, got tires remounted to them and they didnt fit. I had to sell them for 1/3 of what Id just paid. Id never have guessed the bolt pattern would be different for a sedan and convertible.
