The Subaru BRZ 17" Rims look very clean on a Fiero and you get them for a great price.

The BRZ owners usually want to put a set of after market rims and tires...so I have found two complete perfect sets with tires. The 1st set cost me $450 and the 2nd set cost $500.00


This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

***The only modification you need to do to these rims is to bore out the center by 1mm wider...it wasn't hard to do.

Those are 17x7 front with 215/40 front, 18x71/2 235/40 18 rear. MRR wheels. I think I need to lower the car 1"/more to get the stance I really want. What do you think??

This is the picture with the new tires, Continental Extreme Contact DW 205/45R17 front, 225/45R18 Rear. No rubbing issues.

Here is with the old way over-sized tires.


Yokohama's 225/45R17 Front, 255/45R18 Rear. With this size they would rub in the wheel wells in certain situations. More than I cared for. Rear suspension is coil overs. Front suspension was lowered by one of five owners. I actually raised it a little.

In my case, while the tires are larger (meaning more contact with the road), the outside tire diameter is almost exactly the same as the OEM tires (Don't quote me, as I did these long ago, and believe is was only a couple mph difference, very minor). You only have to worry about the rear tires, in cases where the diameter is considerably larger or smaller you consult with a speedo shop, or post question here for others experience with that size tire. I know that there wasn't a lot in speedo transmission gear choices available.

My tires were also chosen to closely match the rolling diameter of the stock 88 Formula's. (It's mostly a tossup between 235/45-17s and 245/45-17s. I have run both, at different times.)

If you have a way to alter the programming in the ECM, it really doesn't matter. You can program for however many revolutions per mile that you need.
