Fikse FM10 vs 135M

Hey guys,

I have a chance to buy some Fiske FM10 wheels froma friend and I was wondering how good of a wheel is it compared to my stock ZHP 135M wheels? What are advantages and what are disadvantages. I have no experience in wheels at all...



It seems like my 135M wheels can handle some pretty big bumps without them being bent or damaged. I've searched and read that the FM10's are only 18lbs...how heavy are my 135M's? Also would I have to lower my ZHP if I got them or would they look alright with the stock ride height? I don't want to lower it anymore because I don't want to deal with the headaches of large bumps and high angle driveways. Oh yeah are there any guys here with pics of these wheels on their vehicle? Thanks!

I have heard that those wheels are good. And they are a lot lighter than your stock rims probably 10 pounds less each wheel.

If the wheels are 19'' then the car will be higher than what it is now obviously.
I would drop it on H & R Sport Springs since you dont want a ridiculously low drop. Or better if you can affort Adjustable coil overs (PSS9's)

Good Luck

I can't get them...I was initially wowed by the deal with rubber and wheels for one too good to be true price. I was about to bite but then I found out through other channels that the price was paid by someone else who got his wheels/rubber stolen. There's no way I can support stolen goods so I'll just wait until a "legit" deal comes around. My 135M's are still hot looking and I've only had the car since this July...hehe.
