Im not ready to buy the wheels just yet. Just collecting some info on some wheel companies. Im kinda picky about the look. I can use the wheels off my diablo to start the build.With building a second car I'm on a budget till i get working again. Thanks for the input. ::thumbup

Red hammer did you buy that large lot of R GT spare parts that was for sale on eBay ?
Yes I bough the whole lot as the seller wouldn't separate them, I'm selling my double parts and keeping one set.

Hey not sure if your interested but I got a nice set of 2002/2004 era factory chrome Murcielago speedline wheels that are is good shape with Pirelli PZero Rosso tires.  Tires are about half tread and wore even.  Don't have the center caps but could give you a great deal on them.  Perhaps if your interested we can work out something with the Diablo Seats your fabricating up.  Let me know and they look great on Diablo's and others, can send you pic's if interested.  Ttyl!

I have OEM murcielago RGT wheels for sale, these are forged very light wheels and are single nut just like the veneno wheels. You can buy a 5 bolt conversion adapter and use it on the fiero.

 ::wave Thanks RT that HRE site has some great wheels. Have you bought from them? It seems that most of the wheels i like on there are in the 20" and over range. Im not sure that i can use such a large wheel on a fiero doner car. I may be possible since I'm gonna build the body . I may be able to make the wheel well a little bigger to accept a large wheel. I did also check out the Exotic motorsports site and there is no gallery to show the wheels for sale. He only shows his car in the pics. You click on his site and it take you to direct buy? Not sure why he has this site set up this way but its not very helpful.

Paul, those Veneno wheels will be hard to find as an exact copy.
They are seven spoke with a pretty fancy rim.
HRE Wheels has a model C103 that is a ten spoke available in many finishes but you would have to make a rim to attach to it to make it look more like the Veneno.
Check out the HRE website:
http://www.hrewheels.com

HRE will make their wheels in any width, size, and with any offset, to your order.

Does anyone know where to buy wheels for diablo replicas? Every rim shop here in vegas can't get wheels with the proper offset. Compomotive doesn't carry diablo wheels anymore. Im not even sure of the offset details. I have a set of nice wheels on my diablo but looking for wheels of a new veneno project i want to start. ::LAMBO
