Reposted in General Chat in hope of getting some quick help

OK, so I just read through about 15-20 topics trying to find the answer to this question. I REALLY hate to ask this because I know this answer is out there, I just can't find it. This is the last part of my project before I put her on the road. Its getting warm up here in the Northeast and would like to purchase a set ASAP...

My Fiero is an 88gt w/ stock suspension; well, stock height but all new parts (NOT coilovers)...
Where are you guys w/ 88 Fiero's finding aftermarket wheels w/ the staggered offset & width that the 88's use?

I am trying to find 17" wheels in 7"; 45mm offset & 8"; 38mm offset... I would go wider and use a different offset as long as it will fit...
I am not terribly picky on the style, just want something that fits properlly and looks decent. However, I am not a big fan of wheels that have allot of rivits/bolts...

Please help,
AL

Links to some wheels I have seen on ebay that I like, but can not find staggered

After digging around quite a bit myself for wheels, I ended up going with Enkei EDR-9 wheels - not too bad on price if you look around and they do have the correct sizes and offsets. There are some pictures of them here on this thread //www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/105568.html from a while back. Here is a link to 1010 tires where I first saw them, but I ended up buying locally by beating a local tire shop guy around the head (figuratively) with the model numbers of the wheels i wanted.

Edit: Hah, I just realized we were the two who had talked through that whole thread. Just now getting it started up again?

HAHA, ya, I remember you!
I am up in the air about those rims. I like them, but I am not in love with them... Kinda like the rims that have a bit of a lip to them...

Well then as you can see sadly there are not too many options. If I had to change mines today I wouldn't have any option. Unless you sepnd the big bucks and go custom order.
