Default FS Minty Mint Set of 18" Fikse FM5! Wide Body 993 Fitment

This is a stunning set of Fikse FM5 wheels that were built to order for a wide body 993. This is about as nice as they come on the used market and I truly believe that you’d have to buy them new to get a nicer set. The gentleman I bought them from reported to use them as a “back up” set for his 993tt and he very rarely used them. I have been hanging onto them for my 993tt, but this is one of three sets of FM5s in my “inventory” and I’m refinishing another set to be exactly what I want (polished lips and painted centers). I just can’t see them getting used by me in the near future and there’s no point in having them sit in the corner.

Specs:

Front wheels
18” x 9”
Backspace: 7.00”
Offset: ET51mm
20.60lbs
Bolt Pattern: 5x130

Rear Wheels
18” x 11”
Backspace: 7.50”
Offset: ET38mm
21.60lbs.
Bolt Pattern: 5x130



They have ZERO damage, ZERO curb marks, ZERO bends and have never been apart or repaired for any reason! The centers and the lips are clear anodized and there is ZERO peeling, cracking, crazing or discoloring of the finish! They are NOT “perfect”, but they are REALLY close. I bought them from the original owner and he told me that they were built specifically for a 993tt and the above specs reflect that pretty clearly. They should be a 100% bolt-on solution for any 1996-1998 911tt, C2S or C4S. I have no doubt they will fit other Porsches and while I can make an educated guess as to what year(s) and model(s) they will fit, I simply cannot guarantee fitment on anything beyond a widebody 993. However, if you have questions or concerns about fitment, feel free to PM me and I’ll see if I can help in some way.

I am asking $2600/shipped/insured to the lower 48. Everything you see in the pictures is included in the purchase price (4 wheels, 4 center caps and 4 bolt-in valve stems). The wheels are located in the general vicinity of Denver, CO and they are in packed in sturdy boxes, well protected and ready to ship. If desired, I can send full-size versions of the pictures below.

I don't. I was saving them for a rainy day and actually never mounted them. They were removed from the boxes, inspected for shipping damage, spun on a wheel balancer to check for trueness and put back in their boxes.

Here's a picture of a RL'ers Speed Yellow car with the same wheels though:

The Yellow Car above is currently in my possession - still running the FM-5s, although I've had to replace the inner rim on both rears (which are 10.5s). Nice wheels in terms of weight and ease of cleaning.

The wheels in this ad look tremendous and the price is VERY good - someone needs to buy these NOW!

Thanks for the kind words Steve. I am surprised that your rears are 10.5" though. Seems like Fikse defaulted to making 11's for these cars. Of course it's always up to the customer, but it seems like Fikse would usually "guide" the customer down the 11" path.

We met briefly at the 993 GTG in Foster City a couple years ago. Here's another picture I took with my iPhone that night:

Replied. Sorry about the delay. The wife and I went out of town for the weekend and I didn't bring a computer with me.

I've been resisting the urge to bump this thread because I wasn't 100% certain that I wanted to part with them......it's time to let go.....if you love something, set it free....or something like that.
