New Rubber and Rims

They have finally arrived. I hope to have them on my 85 tonight and post some pics tomorrow.

Those look mean. FM5's? Is that black anodizing?

Those tires look like they'll hook up real good.

Mighty pretty - such thin spokes - are they lighter than the fuchs?

Nice looking! Azzurro, did you get the wheels from Fikse anodized or were they sent somewhere to be anodized? I'm looking to have the centers of my FM-5's anodized...

I ordered the wheel anodized directly from Fikse. I'm not sure if they are lighter than Fuchs but the new tire/rim combo is much lighter than my original 15" BBS/Yoko combo and man are they sticky.

If those wheels are brand new, I would not accept them with the scratches/rash shown on the picture... M2c.

I bet there is no way they are lighter, considering the much larger width and ultra larger diameter.

Hey, we should have a beer some time. I travel up tp South Porcupine quite often, usually Hwy 11, but go via 144 the odd time.

I bet the scratches are just vaselin. Looking good.
