Wonder where these really came off of? A Fiero prototype? doubtful..
Could be a good buy though?

I was going to say they look like Bonneville wheels.

They were used on the first prototype but they are production Sunbird wheels as pointed out. They will not fit a Fiero as they are not positive offset wheels and they also have the wrong lug pattern.

They are about as rare as an old RWD Sunbird. I have not seen either in years.

That pattern was used on several Pontiacs.

Nope.
The 70s Sunbirds were 4 lug. Same as all the Monzas, Starfires, and Skyhawks that I owned.
They may have come off of an X or J body. Would have been 5x100 and the correct offset.

If I remember right, the last time this topic came up, a picture surfaced of a Pontiac Phoenix with these wheels

Yup. Seller said they were 5x100, 13 inch rims, meaning they were from a late model Pontiac Phoenix. They'd still work on a Fiero, if you hated yourself.

I did dig around and It is an Z wheel. I forgot they had those. I had see one of these less than the Sunbirds. LOL!

Either way these are not common wheels to find anymore. Next trick is to find a good 13" tire.

Are there center caps?
