I thought I posted this earlier but it must not have gone through. I'm looking for info on the company that makes custom wheel spacers to order. I'm sure I saw the info here but not sure, can anyone help/
Thanks

If you look at this forum on a phone, it's a pain in the ass and easy to get lost. Much better on large computer screen. Here's the link I posted over there.

I would assume that you wish to use a different bolt pattern wheel on your Fiero. It certainly can be done but you will need to consider the backspace/offset of the new wheels being used, their overall width, and the fit within the wheel houses on your car. Different wheels also have different wheel stud requirements and hub concentricity must be considered. Spacers also change the wheel alignment so that needs to be considered as well.
Point is that this is not a "one and done" job.

I have an 85 GT rebodied as a 308 GTB. It has real Ferrari staggered wheels. 7", 8". It already has adapters, 5-100 to 5-108. I'd like to space the rear out 1.5" and the front 1". It just doesn't have the correct stance. I saw a thread about a company that does custom spacers and I didn't save it. I've found other companies that offer the same service but won't do Fieros. Thanks for the response. On a side note...I just noticed under my user name it says "junior member" I know that's there because I just joined but I'm 67. I think that makes me a senior member.

I got spacers from an Ebay seller, Lugs-n-stuff, a couple years ago. I messaged them through Ebay and described what I needed. They did great.

Note: If you race, many race org's ban spacers and adapters. Check rules before try to race.
They know many such things are made weak and break for racing. Many break for normal driving as is because of many problems using them.

Thank you, theogre. I'm aware of the warnings and do heed them...usually.
