Trying to get new wheels ordered for the Fall MAFOA show but I can't decide. So far this is what I found that I like, but I am taking opinions; Please if you have any fitment notes feel free to let me know that oh hey that 35mm offset won't sit nice.
Obviously if you have better suggestions post them.

I run the Sport Edition F12 , 17" wheels w the 35 mm offset and with 225 x 45 x 17 R and 215 x 45 x 17 F. They fit without any problems. Any wheel with a similar profile should fit well.
Sport Edition wheels are designed by Kanei a Japanese Company. They look great are durable and economical. I am partial to the F12 design in 17" size but its really just a matter of taste.
Here is how they will look on a Fiero:


------------------
" THE BLACK PARALYZER" -87GT 3800SC Series III engine, custom ZZP /Frozen Boost Intercooler setup, 3.4" Pulley, Powerlog manifold, Northstar TB, LS1 MAF, 3" Flotech Afterburner Exhaust, Autolite 104's, MSD wires, Custom CAI, 4T65eHD w. custom axles, HP Tuners VCM Suite.
"THE COLUSSUS"
87GT - ALL OUT 3.4L Turbocharged engine, Garrett Hybrid Turbo, MSD ign., modified TH125H
" ON THE LOOSE WITHOUT THE JUICE "

Thank you.



What year is your car?

1984-1987 Fieros need a very different front wheel offset than 1988 Fieros. ~42 to 48mm with a 7" wide wheel looks good on the front of an 88. For the earlier cars 35mm is about right I think.

The rears for all years are the same. ~30mm for a 7" wide wheel and ~42mm for an 8" wide wheel.

This makes shopping for 88's a bit of a challenge because you need to by staggered sizes and/or offsets.
