OK, many years ago I had a Fiero based kit car. I remembered the compact front suspension and used the Fiero suspension in my race car. Now I am driving it on the street, and here comes the problems.... On the race car, I was running 14" steelies, worked great. Now I am trying to use Weld wheels skinnies on the front (to match the rear). Of course, Weld does not make a prostar in 5 x 100mm...
I put an 84-87 rotor on the bridgeport and drilled it for 5 x 4 1/2" bolt pattern, this does not look very safe. Additionally, I cannot put the weld wheel directly on because the face of the rotor does not protrude enough - hence, the wheel hits the caliper... geez !!! The temporary solution is a pair of trans-dapt wheel adapters 5 x 100mm to 5 x 4 1/2". They work, but I ma not a fan of them, AND they add 1.25" each side to the track width making the tires tough the fenders.
I have read though a zillion posts, most of which convert to the corvette rotors (which I do not need) and keep the same 5 x 100mm bolt pattern, which I cannot use. I have also found bits and pieces of the corvair hub swap, but if this is the way to go, I really need all of the info on the complete conversion.
Surely someone has solved this problem already, either by spindle swap, stub axle swap, etc.
Any help would be appreciated. You guys have made me start looking for another Fiero project !!
