Unhappy F/S Fikse FM-5 wheels with Michelin PSC's *SOLD*

Well, after much gnashing of teeth and hair pulling and bothering everyone it turns out the supposed 10.5" rears are in reality 11". There is no way I'm going to be able to stuff these under my wheel wells, sooooo they are up for sale as of now.

The basic info is as follows-

Fronts: 8.5x18 et 44.5 with 225-40ZR18 MPSC's
Rears: 11x18 et 38 with 285-3ZR18 MPSC's

You can e-mail me at bruinbro@sbcglobal.net for more pics and further info.

I'm looking to get $2500 for the set shipped to your location. Please pass the word around.

Thanks, Steve


I will be delivering them tomorrow, and unless there is some unexpected hangup with fit they will be gone.

Thanks for those of you that expressed luck and interest,

Steve

Forgot to add...

the rear offset might be larger than I mentioned; I'm in the process of checking with Fikse to determine what it is. Also, I would be willign to sell the rims by themselves for $2000.

New wheel and tire data

Just got through measuring the wheels and tires. Here's what I have for new info:

The rear wheels are 11" widths with 44mm offset. The fronts are 8.5" width with 50mm offset.

Both front and rear tires have 2/32" inboard lateral groove depth, 5/32" inboard radial groove depth and 3/32" outboard cross-hatch groove depth.

The front wheel and tire weighs 40 lb (80 lb for both sets).

The rear wheel and tire weight 44 lb (88 lb for both sets).
