I bought a 1984 car for 175$, I found it on Craigslist no engine so after a talk with a friend he said I could have a 3800sc he has for free, anyway long story short this is going to be hopefully used in the 24 Hours of Lemons race. I want to sell some parts that might be worth something to help finance this and if there are any hard to find parts I don't want to destroy them. The car came with these rims and I've never seen them before so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Graham Brannon

Those were the more "base" Fiero steel wheels. I'm not sure if they were 13" or 14".
They also had the 13" aluminum "turbo fin" wheels, and the 14" aluminum "high tech" wheels that everyone is familiar with. I'm not sure about years and availability.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that particular style of steel wheel was only on the '84 Fiero? And I think they're 13" diameter (you can check the size on the tire). In the later years, the steel wheels were all black, with hubcaps... and were all 14" diameter.

Thanks for the info. I had an 87 with the black steel rims and plastic hubcaps, I think its correct that these were only on the 84.
anyone know if there is any value to them?

There's not much value in the wheels, you'll get much more from the seats, interior, any good headlight parts and those type of parts.

At first glance to me those look like standard GM steel "Rally Wheels" with chrome beauty ring. Check the dimensions and offset. GM used them as a "sporty" steel wheel on a variety of cars dating back to the 60s, so certain collectors may value them higher than others depending on what those dimensions are...

Edit: I looked again and they look more like standard steel wheels.... I need to drink more coffee before I respond!
