Other OEM rims and tires that fit Fiero?

I think I remember a list somewhere that had all the other Make/Model vehicles that the OEM rims would fit the Fiero?
Im due for new tires and figured I'd check out craigslist for people looking to sell their OEM rims when they upgrade.

Hoping to find a direct fit because any aftermarket rims are a longshot.
I always find they don't quite fit right when I put them on.

If you're buying the right offset, they fit right, buying wheels from another car won't guarantee the right offset.

What kind of budget do you have? I've seen people get great deals that made me sick because they watched the sales.

If you're on Facebook, there's a group exclusively for selling 5x100 wheels and tries, you'll find lots of great deals there. Shipping can be done cheaply, around $150 through fastenall.

IMO, there's a much better chance of finding aftermarket rims which will fit. The problem with OEM rims is that often the center bore is specific to a certain make of car. So even if the rims have the correct bolt pattern and the correct offset, they still won't fit. The way aftermarket rims get around this problem is to cast a large center bore, and then the consumer simply buys the correct size hub centric rings which will fit both the rims and their car's hubs.

I'm banned from Facebook but if you search 5x100 in groups, you'll find a few.

It's not a joke, they find all my fake accounts. I think I've figured out how they identify my accounts, I just haven't tried to make another account recently. When I tried to have my original account restored they responded with "under no circumstances will we restore your account".

IP address is a dead give-a-way but why create a fake account? Facebook is a joke of a site anyway. As for the brand X wheels that fit there is a long thread on that in the archives

I wasn't suggesting you were kidding. I honestly didn't know why a person would be banned from FB.
