Strange, I definitely thought the same thing. ( only about a $40 a "set" price difference)
After driving around today ,Taking notice of all Burgundy/Maroon cars that were MOVING, the cars with #2 wheels, you could actually SEE that they had fancy rims. The cars with #1 type rims, when they are spinning (going down the road) they just loo like Black Wheels! you don't SEE any chrome, just black wheels and tires ! Now, do I want it looking good Standing Still OR going down the road ? Hmmmm . I wish the "Boneyards" "Showcased" the wheels they removed from car, around here, it seems that the cars get processed in, and ALL the Wheels and tTires are immediately Removed from the cars and sold off in "Bulk" ! (maybe just for the price of the aluminum) It would sure be nice to get a sharp set of Rims for $200 or under. New ones are a bit pricey, even the low priced wheels.

more people will look at the wheels standing still then while rolling. Personally though, I would look more at sizing, weight, and matching width to weight distribution.

and, like everyone else, #1.

I thought #1 too at first, second set isn't so bad either if you imagine all that shiny chrome on a beautiful Fiero. I had a similar set on an 85 GT and if you saw the wheels just by themselves they looked kinda cheesy but they actually looked great on the car. But what is up with the details on that wheel, 5-spoke design, 8 bolt 'hub' with a hexagon shaped cap, who in the fubar came up with that?

#1, but what size?

The Fiero is lucky, in that it can still look decent even with 19" wheels.

I saw a 94-02 Acura Integra today with I think 18" wheels and it looked like a truck. It was almost as bad as all the stupid "donk" cars rolling around. Just don't "donk" your Fiero.

EDIT: I thought those wheels looked familiar. They're the first result on a Google image search of "grand prix 5 star wheels" even. They look like they belong on a Pontiac. A GTO or G8, but would probably look good on a Fiero too.

will most likely be 17s, maybe 17 front 18 rear (If I can find what I want and can swing the cost.) so many wheels only come in 16 and 17. and if you can get 18, they are only 7.5" wide. (If I want 18 on the rear, I'd like at LEAST 8" width, with 40 offset, but then here comes the COST again !) got a feeling I'm going to have to "Settle", not what I really WANT, but... you know how it is. Maybe keep an eye on the MALL for awhile, (but shipping's a deal killer)

Have you upgraded to larger diameter rotors, or do you plan to do that at a later date.
Open looking, large diameter wheels and stock rotors aren't that appealing IMHO.

Hate to be the only one but # 2 would look great on a fiero. Has a little more aggressive look to them. In the end pick the set that puts a smile on your face when you think about them on your car.

You're not. I find the second wheel pictured to be more stylish than the first. Of the two, they're the ones I'd pick.

Looks good. You just needed black center-caps.

They work fine here. If you aren't seeing them, then it's due to whatever network you're on. If you're at work, maybe the host they are on is blocked.

The settings are dependent on the browser you're using. Do you not see images anywhere... or just in this thread?

Your old GT looks great with them. Too bad you can't see it.
