    adapt-it has been nothing but trouble with me. had them make me a pair of 1.5 spacers and they sent me one inch spacers after they even told me they do not make them that thin only down to 1 1/4!!! they are SUPER hard to get ahold of spent many a day sitting on hold waiting for someone. namly Jamie. still waiting for my return box for the old spacers(i know ups sends empty boxes faster then two weeks time.) I guess I'll just have to call and sit on hold for a while again on Tues to see what the deal is. Ohh they also lost my work order and recipt. lemme tell you. great place they have. the BBB should know how good of a job they do!!

    Re:Gotta have Wheel Spacers

    Some kit bodys are much longer and wider than the Fiero, so on top of streching the frame, the rear and somtimes the front suspension must be widened.This can be done through wheel spacer, but the wider the spacer the more pressure is put onto the wheel bearings and can be dangerous.Some bodies are extremly wide,too wide for wheel spacers so the portion that the wheels ride on called wide track suspension or wide track parts are used. Try searching the net for Fiero wide track suspension or Fiero wide track parts.When wheel spacers are used or a wide track suspension the size of the wheel spacers, adapters or wide track may effect the rim offset.So when purchaseing rims,I would leave that up to the rim dealer or try leaving a post, I wouldn't know the offset...........
