What size of rims and low profile tires can I put on my 1986 Fiero, currently it came with 14 inch?

Let me get this right. If I stick with the same stock rims and tires the wheel well will be filled up...makes sense. So if I go with a low profile tire with the same size rim I am going to have a large space. So I would need to go with a larger rim with low profile.

Is this correct?

Yes... Here's a tire/wheel size calculator.

Plug in your current tire/wheel size and note the calculated height. Now play with different combinations, while trying to keep the height the same or close.
