Hi all, just wondering what the value of of a set of 4 factory honeycomb wheels with newer tires on them is worth. The wheels have been cleaned up, refinished in black and in excellent condition. The tires are newer, under 500 miles on them.

I call them lace wheels

Do two of them have a lip and are wider than the other 2?

As 2.5 implies, if they are 88 wheels, they will likely be worth a bit more. They're mostly going to be worth what someone will pay for them though. Most people aren't looking for stock wheels, so there isn't much demand for stock wheels, even if they are newly refinished. If you're selling them, they will be most valuable to someone restoring a car as a show car in stock trim.

These are factory "Fiero" wheels? Those are cross lace wheels. Value may depend on sizes - 88 used staggered sizes and pre-88 were 15x7 all around.

Yup, cross lace..that's them. They are off an 87. Just trying to get an idea of what a reasonable price might be...I was thinking $500 for the set with the tires..just haven't seen a lot of these for sale so don't have an idea of what these go for..

I had someone give me a set of 87 "lace" wheels which I had restored to new condition. They cost $130/wheel for the restoration.

I has someone give me a set of gold 88 "lace" wheels with old tires/ I had the tires removed and plan to get them restored.

I think the Fiero store had some reconditioned wheels for $600 a set.

From my experience on Craigslist, I would say $350-400 if you really want them gone, but if you can wait I'd say that $500 isn't unreasonable.
Problem is that there are plenty of cheap Fieros, and quite a few with original wheels, so for a few hundred more one can get a GT parts car with similar wheels.

If they're newly refinished with decent new (or practically new) tires, then $500 is a pretty reasonable price. Really decent tires are going to cost $300 at least in the stock sizes, and refinishing a set of wheels is going to cost over $200, so $500 is a pretty good deal for both of those, with the tires already mounted/balanced.

But stock Fiero wheels are not in huge demand, so it may take a while to get rid of them, and in that time, the tires can dry out and may need replaced anyway, which will not help the value and will just making shipping more expensive if the tires are on them and do need replaced.

Yes, I would sell them. Don't know about shipping. How about $400 for the set?

I'd consider selling the wheels, but at 20+ pounds per wheel shipping them to Canada would be pricey.

Lar and Spirit,

Anyone want to try to get a shipping quote to Canada, postal code S7N4K7?

Slowest, cheapest is fine with me.

(I've got an 88 GT CJB with only 26,000 miles. The only unoriginal thing about it are the wheels. Seller told me the gold lace wheels are long gone and I would love to put it back to bone stock.)

I would need to get the set of gold wheels refurbished before I'd sell them. Remember the pre 88 front "lace" wheels are different than the 86 or 87 lace wheels.

Since I have both an 87 GT


and an 88 GT with gold wheels


I had been thinking of replacing the wheels with like new refurbished wheels, but the wheels on my cars are still in good condition.

I can check to see what UPS would charge for sending wheels to Canada, but I imagine that it would be $$$.
