    Pictures! Pictures! Pictures! If you cant post them e-mail them to me and I will post them. Also 5" is a little large, stay with 3" or under if possible.

    While I will not advocate wheel adapters, especially wide ones, contact Dave'Funnywheels'. He knows of a reputable place that makes them to your spec. My suggestion... bite the bullet and purchase a frt & rear setup from Helds, RCC, Streat Dreams, or others. Running on little Fiero spindles/bearings could seriously 'backfire' on you! You will probably spend at least half of that total later on down the road in 'fine tuning' the Fiero/CHEVETTE suspension!
    good luck,
    Sandy
    MAD... just noticed you're in Ontario.... it will be very hard to justify spending that kind of $$$, but, maybe you could pick it up at the boarder and save some shipping/broker fees. Occasionally, Helds stuff shows up on Ebay or Pennocks, but probably not with your dimensions.....

    Hi Mike
    Next time you're in Tony's shop take a look at the yellow primed car beside yours. You will notice it has the held wide track suspension on the front. It has been stretched 3". If you try and use adaptors with a 3" spacing you won't be able to turn the front wheels very far without rubbing against the wheel wells. Unfortunately if you want to be able to drive the car you should consider that upgrade. Since you've got the rear Fiero stock suspension, I would also consider going with the Held wide track rear suspension if your looking for a 5" wider track on each side. It is a simple bolt on and reasonably priced. It will also relieve stress on your rear bearings.

    Is it true that people are still dealing with people in this industry that bilk others??? I thought we learned that lesson with DKOV. Go read about Tonys dealings in the consumer affairs section, or just IM ARI!. I ordered a body from Tony Sousa that took nearly a year to get, with many phone calls and so many promises of making it up by sending interior stuff, ETC. NEVER HAPPENED. DO NOT support those that lie and steal from others, it takes money out of all our pockets!
