SOLD I have a set of 17x9.5 inch Fikse FM5 wheels in 4th gen offset. I bought these for my 01 TA but decided I don't like the way they look on TAs. I bought them from a guy on ebay and never even opened them all until today. Not a scratch on any, perfect shape, they come with plain caps as well as Fikse logo caps and lug nuts. Edit: currently asking $1600 shipped. I'm in Grangeville Idaho.

Here they are packaged to ship. There is styrofoam in the bottom with the front facing the foam. Each is wrapped in plastic and bubble wrap, and card board around the outer lip.

Have any interest in a set of Fikse Profile 5S wheels in the same size as yours. I have a set on my 01 SS and still like the look of the FM5's a bit better.

I'll be driving down to Vegas thursday afternoon to do a little job with my dad and then over to the LA area to get the rest of my stuff that's in Oxnard. If anyone around where I'll be going wants these I could bring them down and save you shipping.

These are still available. I've had quite a few PMs but most people haven't responded to mine. I'll try to put a couple on my TA and take a picture so everyone can see how they fit, I don't even know I've never had them on anything lol.

Ok I put one on the wrecked TA I'm stripping to see how they fit. The pics aren't the best but they'll give you an idea how they sit.

Here's one on the rear

They are about flush with the fender on the front, it's hard to see in this pic but holding this level up to the fender there is maybe 3/8ths of an inch between the rim and level

I've only seen them in pictures before and I think they look better on Camaros than on TAs but in person they looked surprisingly good on this car. I'm tempted to keep them and put them on my 01 TA like I originally planned, but I like the stock wheels just fine so if someone wants these I'd rather have the cash.

I know a lot of you would prefer 11 inch rears so if two guys want to buy a pair for the front and get your own rears I'd be willing to do that. 17 inch Fikses are around $800 new, so I'll go $900 shipped per pair. I think I saw a thread about Fikses on sale, I don't know if they still are but if you can get a deal on 11 inch rear and buy a pair of mine for fronts you'd be in way less than the normal $3200+ at regular price.

I'd prefer cash but just to see what you guys might have, I'd consider a part or full trade. I have 67, 68 and 69 Firebirds, I could use a 400 hood, I'd be interested in any performance Pontiac parts, suspension parts for a 1st gen, maybe wheels for any of my cars, I also have a 79 TA, 89 GTA, my 01 WS6 of course, and a 69 Tempest. I might be interested in any parts for any of those.

Tell me what you guys think. If I keep these no big deal, I do like them, but I think there are wheels I'd like better for my TA so if I can get a decent price and/or some good parts I'll let them go.

I can probably ship them for $100, so I'd go $1500. Where in OR are you? Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle.

Thanks for the pic, I think they look great on Camaros. Do you know the width and offset and/or backspacing of yours?

Not my car but was a fan when I shopping for my set.

mac62989 is correct in sizes. Fikse likes +38mm and +44mm for fbods (front to back respectively).

A couple guys asked about serial numbers. I don't want to upbox all 4 if I can avoid it but here's a pic of one.

Yeah just let me know. I haven't had them on my car other than the pics I posted. It would be nice if they were tucked in a little more on the front but I think with the right width tires, maybe on the narrow side of what's good for the width on front and a little wide on back I think they'd look great and clear fine.
