I own an 85' GT. I need new tires and it's virtually impossible to find the right tire size. I was just thinking changing the rim size would solve the issue, however, I know very little about tires and rims so I'm here to ask.
If you go to the tire rack website, you can input your make and model and then it will ask for the size of wheel you want .Pick 16" and it will show all available rims and suggest a tire size that will work out to close to your stock overall diameter .You can even see a pic of your chosen combo on your car . Your speedo will be close to actual speed doing it this way .Have fun .
The President of the Georgia Fiero Club lives over in Athens, Al. Email or PM me with your information and I'll have him contact you. 14" tires are still available from Tire Rack. 215/60/14's will fit nicely on the car. http://www.tirerack.com/tir...ratio=60&diameter=14
Due to the difficulty in locating reasonably priced 14's, at some time you'll need to go up to probably a 16 " or larger diameter wheel. I'd suggest grabbing some 14's and then take your time to put together the funds and search out the wheel style and size you want. One of our members out here has a couple of new 14's mounted on wheels, but getting them to you is an issue. http://www.gafiero.org/bbs/index.php?topic=1715.0
PEP BOYS has the cheapest prices on wheels. I've bought 2 sets from them. sometime you can find "Closeout"s and actually get new polished aluminum 16" or 17" rims for about $45 each. you need 5 x 100mm bolt pattern 38-40mm back spacing.
Instead of looking up something for a Fiero, just use 5 x 100 x 40mm offset in the diameter you want. I did both when looking for a replacement MSR wheel. Nothing came up for Fiero, but with wheel dimensions, I found the exact wheel I needed.
Just go to the Tire Rack website .Much simpler , and all years of fiero's are in there .This is the easiest way to make sure you get the correct size tire to make your speedometer work properly . Once you know the tire size and wheel specifics , you can buy them any where you want .

I just searched craigslist by typing 5x100 found some sweet konig 18 inch rims that used to be actually on a Fiero and 5 new 235 tires! I love the 18's perfect size, look killer on the car. The tires gripped like crazy too! And best of all I only paid $300 for everything
