Have been looking for a used set of wheels that fit nice, found these but can't find any similar looking wheels already on a fiero. Anyone have an idea of what they will look like. I seem to like 5 spokes more on these but These will be a perfect fit.

Then why are you even looking at these?

I prefer the 5-spoke style myself, and I wouldn't consider the style you've pictured... even if they were given to me. Different strokes spokes for different folks.

Go with your gut.

I think they'll look okay. Not my style, but they'll look okay.

With that said...
If you have an 84-87 Fiero, most anything within reason that will fit a Volkswagen New Beetle will fit your car. The bolt circle is identical, and the offsets (~35mm) are just about perfect.

If you have an 88, look for Subaru Impreza wheels for the front. (They have a more suitable offset... ~45 mm.) If they have a "universal" or ~72mm centerbore, you're golden. If they have a Subaru-specific centerbore (which is 1 mm smaller than the Fieros 57.1 mm) keep looking. Most will be "universal".
The real trick for an 88 is finding wheels for both cars in the same style.

Ja! That is my car and yes those are the wheels in chrome. Main reason I bought them was because back then they were the only ones to come in 18x7 42mm offset and 18x9 35mm offset combo which for an 88 is IMHO the perfect setup for a staggered look. I do like a lot the 5 spoke too and would go to those if I could find the right widths and offsets. I plan to change these in a near future if I find the right combo. If not I may powdercoat the spokes black.

Hm. I guess I'll be the only one that says I think they look pretty darn good on there. I look at stock 14" wheels every day, so by comparison, everything looks good.
