hey everyone.. so i got these rims from the basement shop today. im trying to google some research on these and cant find anything...

kelsey hayes et mag wheels ... 15x8...i have all four same model number new in the boxes never used never opened never touched the ground...i took them home without thinking if they would fit or not. and now i see there deep dish and 15x8 so im assuming i cant do anything with them on a fiero right ?

am i wrong here .. i have a 1987 fiero gt v6 auto. with the stock wheels on right now... i want to know if they would fit.. besides that i would just like some info on these are they rare ? ugly ? did i find a diamond or a nothing ?

they are stamped 1981 on the back.. heres some pics.. any info related would be helpful. if not there going on craigslist for someone who can use them..

also i know nothing about rims and tire size. i just spent 30 min reading old threads about this . and my eyes are sore. i apologize for not knowing these things but i never cared about cars until i got my fiero so bare with me.. i under stand the tire sizes but not bold patterns and width issues with rubbing etc etc etc... so please break it down to me like a 5th grader...lol....... will these fit

do you have the measurements for them somewhere. Need to know backspacing and width. The lug pattern is supposed to fit with the right lugs and alignment washers. question now is backspacing.

Just looking at them, with that offset I'd say they are for a RWD vehicle like a Camaro.

As 86GT said, measure them https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html#backspace

Nice vintage wheels, but they are for rear wheel drive applications. If you look at the back of the box in the pic above, the "Uni-Lug" multiple bolt pattern is pretty much explained. They require a shank style lug nut with a special oval shaped washer with an offset hole for 4 1/2" and 5" bolt circles or a special washer with a centered hole for the 4 3/4" bolt circle. Fiero's have a 110mm bolt circle, and the offset is way wrong. Sorry for bad news.

Run a search for "Keystone Klassics"....I think you'll find it's a VERY similar wheel.

so when i look for rims . what exactly should i be looking for...

5x110 ... for example i search craigslist all the time for rims so what can i write in the search instead off just "rims"

5x110 ... and offset 35mm to 40mm ?????

this sucks ballz i also got these original cragers 1964. and there the same issue **** sucks.... i thought it was due to the deep dish but ......... i could always just sell em....

Both sets of rims look considerably more ancient than the Fiero they were intended for. Find something a bit more modern in 5x100 and you'll be far closer to a win.

I will tell you why you won't find these 5 x 100. The stud pattern 5 x 100 is a generally a japanese pattern as it generally is on FWD cars the offset is also wrong on FWD cars. You will need to have them welded and redrilled to make them work no other way i am afraid all the hunting will not find you a set to bolt on. If you do have a set that will bolt on im sure someone will want them.
