    wheels for countach

    I am building a Countach on a Fiero and need some wheels. Having trouble finding 15 inch by 7 and 10 (or thereabouts) on a Fiero hole pattern, 5 x 3.94 or 5 x 100mm. Where did you get your wheels, and what hole pattern did you use? Please and thank you.

    Dalton;

    This is a serious issue with the old Countach builds. Several folks have found some replica wheels that are close called Challenger rims?? but use Chev bolt pattern so need to upgrade the bolt pattern on the Fiero hubs. I have the challenger rims (I'm really not sure that is the right name) on my Prova but they are Chev bolt pattern as I have Corvette hubs and brakes.

    There used to be a company over in Europe, Image Wheels, that made the replica wheels and will do them to your bolt pattern but I am not sure that they do them any more.

    There is one fellow that said he found a company that can build replica rims for the Countach and you set the bolt pattern but I don't know the name. I will email him and ask where he found them. The company is also over in Europe though and if I remember correctly, not cheap......

    Good luck with the search

    Dalton,
    If you are willing to sacrifice accuracy for economy, this wheel is available in the sizes you want and the Fiero bolt pattern.

    Dalton, all of these are 5x100. I do not keep that pattern in stock, it will take 4-6 weeks.
    15x8 $300, 15x10 $325, 17x 8 $425, 17x9.5 $450.
    The ones shown are 17's. I think you will find that the very limited selection of 15" tires are about $600 each, were the 17" tire selection is numerous at $120 per tire, making the 17 a more economical long run solution.

    Agreed to use a 17 inch wheel

    The 15 inch tires are specialty tires very expensive



    Wasn't someone also making fibberglass hubcaps that mimic the countach 5 hole wheel and fit on cheap steel wheels ?
