I picked up my Fiero about 2 months ago and the tires were pretty rotted pretty bad but enough to drive on. I searched around on here on what wheels would work and and also would be cheap. I ended up 16" cavalier z24 wheels I picked up on Craigslist last week for $100. A few days later I was looking for tires that weren't junk so I found a set for $65 bucks. Sumitomo's with barely any treadwear. I swear the tires are probably stolen (would make sense because the part of town I got them in).
So I started stripping them as they were pretty nasty and one had a nice slice down the center of two of the spokes.
Then got a few decent coats of primer and then ended up with Dupli-color silver/gray wheel paint along with some clearcoat.
Not a bad investment for about $200 including the stripper, paint, clear, etc. I had my son mount the tires on the wheels for free since he works at a tire shop
