    it looks like a 4x4 ,
    nothing agressive , but a little drop would help.
    The rest, good job man.

    The overall height of the car is low, and your ass is really close to the ground.

    They just made the wheelwells quite large back in the day.

    Here's a still from a Fiero documentary:
    Fiero Bureau.jpg

    Notice the rolled-up paper drawings everywhere in the design bureau.

    Back in the day with manual drafting, it would have been harder to get the fenders close to the tire, while avoiding rubbing.

    Today with 3D CAD, I'm sure it's a lot easier to shrink the wheelwell openings, and I can imagine two sources of pressure for getting the fenders closer to the tires:
    1. Less aerodynamic drag (better fuel economy) from smaller wheelwell openings.
    2. Satisfying the modern look that customers have come to expect.

    I have more modern-style Enkei wheels ordered and on the way.

    Here is an MS Paint rendering I did:
    Fiero with PF05.jpg

    Probably like you say some drop will be needed to complement the more modern look of the wheels.

    However, I do like the 4x4 look with the original wheels, as that's how things were done back then. I also don't want to ruin the camber curve too much.

    I would have liked more retro-style wheels/tires, but these wheels were the best look/weight/size/maintainability/quality/cost compromise I could find.

    Les bougies après deux semaines de conduite pas trop loin...

    Selon nos témoins dans les chambres de combustion, on constate :
    trop riche!

    Avec mon tune immature âgé de deux semaines, je ne m'attendais pas à la perfection.

    Donc, on brûle le carbone (torche au propane), et on remet les bougies dans le moteur.
