    Re: Wheel spacers

    Jim Lowe machines wheel spacers/adapters for us. You can retrieve his contact info from Dave(funnywheels). This is all I know for now because I always deal with Dave for adapters. Hope this at least gets you in the right direction.

    Re: Wheel spacers

    I have access to a manufacturing company who can make the spacers at a fair price for us.* He can make them from 3/4 inch to 4 inches, aircraft quality hardened metals are used. He also will install hardened truck studs in the adapter of your chioce.

    There are a few things you need to determine for your custom adapters.* The Bolt circle of the new wheels, long or short studs to mount the wheels (OEM 355 Wheels will need the 3 inch long studs).*We already know the Fiero portion of the order, so only the new wheel bolt patern and center hub design is necessary.

    The beauty of these adapters are the fact that they are hub centric and use special load centric lug nuts to attach the new wheel to the adapter.*

    The benefit is no shaking like you get on other wheel adapters.* I used them for 6 years without any problems.

    If they are not hub centric, run for the hills, they will not be safe!

    I have a set of wheel spacers that were designed to be used with oem 355 wheels.... let me know if I can help. They're bolt on's and do the 5X100 to 5X108 conversion.

    Re: Wheel spacers

    The oem 355 wheels have a pretty huge offset so the rear spacers are thick... 4" The fronts are 2 1/4", but nothing even comes close in my opinion to the look of real deal 355 wheels. Most people frown on spacer use, but I used them for about a year with no handling or bearing problems. I'll take $250 for them, email me if you're interested... blutes@storm.ca
    The studs are 14mm 1.5 pitch thread (standard ferrari)
