    Fiero front spindles

    Has anyone ever had any issues with the Fiero front spindles or bearings when installing larger wheels and tires on them? I am doing a build with the Fiero spindles and they just look rather small to me when using a wheel and tire combination that is 26" tall and over 8" wide. Just wondering if anyone has heard of any problems with them.

    84-87 spindles dont do well with big brake kits. 88 had stronger spindles so there are no issues with upgraded brakes. i have never heard of any issues with larger wheels

    The 88s have weak front bearings. The OEM bearings are all sold out and the reproductions do not have a good track record. All the autocrossers that use 88 Fiero I know, will spend a lot of time tracking down OEM bearings because they go though at least one set a year.

    HT Motorsports, Grand Rapids, MI. machines a Fiero front spindle and uses a front wheel drive type hub & bearing assembly. Give them a call if you are worried about overloading the oem Fiero wheel bearings. (hint: Center the tire tread in the center of the wheel bearings to help in the bearing life).
