When I was wheel shopping for our VR6 a while back, we discovered that
the wheels for a V6 Pontiac Fiero are the same bolt pattern/offset that
the VR6 is (5x100mm; 30-40mm neg offset, depending on the specific wheel
- 35-38mm works best on the VW).

Wierd, huh?

Hi all,

  While the 15x7 wheels from a V6 Fiero may have the same bolt pattern and
offset as the VR6 Volkswagens, the wheels do not fit our cars.  I tried to
fit one on my '95 Jetta GLX today but the wheel face (the ridiculously ugly
spiderweb GM thing) hit the front of the brake caliper.  Maybe I did
something wrong but it didn't look that way.

Seth
