These are Ferrari Replica wheels made by Cromodora for the 1988 Mera. Bolt pattern 5x100.

Unfortunately not compatible with a stock Fiero since the lug spacing is different. The only Chromadoras that I know about that are compatible with an 88 Fiero are the optional wheels for the 88 Mera. They vwere supposedly made in the same factory that made Ferrari wheels but I have no way of confirming that.

These don't seem to be OEM Ferrari wheels. 308/328 used 16" (7" Front & 8" Rear) rims and these are 15 according to the markings". I just went outside and the Mera rims on my 328 clone are identical to those listed in the eBay add including all the markings and identifications - 7x15H2 - 30. Even the center cap is weather cracked like mine (glued to Fiero center caps).

Just an FYI,
Held used to modify the Fiero wheel bearing flanges to accept the 5 x 108 bolt pattern so rear Ferrari wheels could be used. What they did was bore out the holes for the stock wheel studs a larger diameter while also changing the pattern to 5x108 (from 5 x 100). Then in the larger holes, they pressed in threaded inserts that accept the stock Ferrari wheel bolts. I sold a brake kit to someone who wanted the rotors drilled to 5 x 108 pattern because he had this modification done and he sent me this picture:

Thanks Ammotrup, they are the ones used by Corporate Concepts on the Mera in 1988. They are Fiero 5x100. I updated my listing.

This auction appears to be for only two wheels instead of a full set. The Chromadoras offered as an optional wheel on the 1988 Mera were 15" wheels in a 5 x 100 lug pattern with a 7" rim if I remember correctly. Based on available information, these are likely original Chromadora wheels without the large plastic center wheel cover. The problem is what to do with only two of them. They would be good for spares if you already have a set. Finding a full set of these wheels in good/excellent condition is difficult and/or expensive so these could be a good buy.

I can check actual measurements on an known original Chromadora wheel if anyone needs the data for confirmation purposes.
