Before I'm lynched for posting something that's been discussed a million times, hear me out. I searched a lot of threads and found lots of pics of Grand Am wheels on Fieros but I could not find any pics of this style:



I don't suppose anyone has these on their car and would like to share? Or happen to know a link to some pics of these installed on a Fiero?

I don't know why but I really like the look of those on that GT! Are those from a Grand Am too?

Looks like Ryan from Sinister Performance had those wheels on his turbo car at one point.

Thanks for the pics/link. Couldn't find any Grand Am or Beretta wheels around here, but I found and picked up a set of these from an '02 Cavalier. They should look nice when I refinish them in gloss black.

These aren't quite the same as the Grand Am wheels you pictured, but they're close. They're 16x6 42mm offset Sunfire wheels that I used to run on my '84, and now they're on my Formula. I use a 1" spacer in the back.

I like your taste in wheels. All you need to do now is to paint those brake calipers red.

Its personal choice, but myself im a fan of just anything with 5 spokes. I LOVE American Racing Torque Thrust Ds and early Ferrari. Hate Cragar though, not because of the looks...theyre just junk.

I like them too, which is why I'm content with the 5 spoke Cavalier wheels I ended up with.

There is no way I can put a Chevy rim on a Pontiac, that's just so wrong! 😂

I always try to find a stock gm wheel when I don't like my car's present offering, and for the most part, I have always preferred Pontiac wheels over Chevy wheels. For my 85 trans am, I used 15x8 snowflakes from a 77 trans am (and ultimately the 17x9 yearone snowflakes), and long pondered the 80 turbo wheels. The Chevy N90 wheels from Monte Carlos are nice, but Pontiac won me by miles here. The one lone exception for me might be the Beretta saw style wheels. They really do look sharp on Fieros. The only reason I haven't bought some, is because I am very picky about symmetry and I hate that one side of the car, the wheels go one way, and they go the other way on the opposite side haha.

C4 Corvettes also had directional 'looking' wheels. You could always buy in pairs so the spokes go the same way. I was told once that was to cool brakes. Its not...has no influence on cooling your brakes...the openings do it just fine.

I like the Grand Am wheels. In fact, I bought a couple to see how they'd look on my Fiero. Then I someone's car on here that had the GTZ wheels and I was hooked. I was driving a GTZ when I decided to get into Fieros, but my GTZ had aftermarket wheels which I didn't care for.

I eventually scored a complete set of GTZ wheels at the salvage for $100, but three of the center caps were gone. Here's a thread about my cheap solution:
