I was looking around trying to find out if (and with what) the front hubs on an 88 can be replaced with a different one from another car. A search here only produced one thread and the link was bad.

I'm pushing the wheel width on the front and I can't use a spacer. I'm hoping there's a different hub I can use that might increase my wheel options.

Can anyone help?

thanks

The 88 front wheel bearing is unique to the 88 fiero, and using anything else requires some machine work on the bearing and/or upright. The nice thing with the 88 front wheel bearing is the wheel flange is large enough that you can have it redrilled for the 5x115, 5 x 4 3/4" or some other pattern and use different wheels.

Here is one with the 4 3/4" pattern:

Im not sure exactly what your trying to do. Are you attempting to install diffrent wheels or wider wheels? You might try longer wheel studs and a spacer. If you installed a wide body kit, you might buy wheel adaptor spacers, those are spacer with stude, they are bolted down useing the stock fiero studs and lugs.

I am installing wider wheels and in the front the only option I've seen so far is to use a spacer. But I would like to avoid that. I thouhgt I see if other hub have been swapped-out and if those might work better for me.
