I posted in your other thread about wheel adapters and wheel offsets. Man, I'm good with my measurements

They look fine and the rears stick out to about where I thought they would. Did you use the 1" adapters or larger?

you were right on with your measurement. I actually used a 15mm adaptor they stick out but the car looks more aggressive with the new shoes.

They don't look bad at all. The tires have a good tread pattern so they do make the car look more aggressive.

Yeah, it's noce when people first realize as you fly past them. The 3800 SC sounds different, though. Fortunately, the Fiero is rare enough that most people wouldn't know what it's supposed to sound like.
