    Pre-weekend Group Buy update just went out to everyone participating in the deal. Today's topic was on the Macan BBK and the steps we took to ensure these wheels would clear without spacers. I'm sure some of you that have been following this thread since the beginning can recall when we first...

    I would definitely recommend adding a second finish choice, just in case we start getting to the bottom of the first production run. However, if you don't have a second preference listed, we will reach out at the end of the GB to see if you are open to an alternative setup if there are not...

    A few phone pics of the 17x8.5" ET43 Satin Bronze SM-10s wrapped in 235/45-17 Michelin Pilot AS4s on my personal 17' GSW. Stock 4motion suspension. No rubbing under suspension compression and full lock. Ride quality and compliance are noticeably improved. Enjoy! -Geirsen

    We are currently planning a DIY Fuel Filler relocation guide using one of our employee's GTI. However, we likely won't have anything published for another month or two as we are wanting to ensure a high-quality and detailed guide. In the meantime, if anyone has any decent Fuel Filler DIY...

    ► APEX | 17” & 18” VW GTI/R Wheel Group Buy - Up to $250 OFF + Free Shipping

    Get to know our APEX360* Program Our Group Buys offer a tremendous opportunity to purchase track-proven wheels at a terrific price point. That value only gets better once you factor in our APEX360* Program! Because wheel warranties do not cover accidents or damage caused by misuse, wheels can...

    Sure thing! Currently, the 17x9" ET42 and 18x8.5" ET43 are tied for first and split pretty evenly. The 17x8.5" ET43 is very close behind. However, the 18x9" ET42 only has a few takers so far. This is pretty much what we expected going into this Group Buy, as the 18x9" ET42 is more of a niche...

    Silver will definitely not be available for the first few production runs. However, if demand for silver continues, we could potentially introduce that finish option later this year. -Geirsen

    Update Time! I wanted to start off by saying thank you to everyone who decided to show up and help us knock this GB out of the park on day one! We were able to hit the max discount in under 48 hours, which I'm quite sure is a new record for APEX Group Buys. With that being said, we still have...

    Satin Black is only available on the 17x9" ET42 and 18x8.5" ET43. Welcome to the forums! You picked the right thread to make your first post in! :cool: From our testing, 255's clear the GTI fuel filler by a few mm on the 17/18x9" ET42 depending on suspension and alignment specs. On a heavily...

    I'll treat this as the official "first request" for APEX MK8 Golf wheels. That way we can hit the ground running once folks start taking delivery of their MK8 GTIs and Golf Rs. :cool:

    We are expecting the first production run to arrive in May. Once production wraps up closer to the end of the GB, we will have a more specific ETA for delivery. -Geirsen

    Right-on you guys! After almost two years of development and working with the VW community on these wheels, I am very excited to see such a positive response to the Group Buy! At this rate, we will hit the max discount in no-time! Remember, if you are holding off from pledging and have yourself...

    Depending on what spec your current 8" wheels are, the 18x8.5" ET43 will likely provide you with a more flush fitment both front and rear. Also, if you mount up your current 225/40-18 tires to the 18x8.5" ET43 wheels, once it comes time to replace your 225's, you will have the option to upsize...

    225/40-18 can technically work on the 18x8.5" ET43 but it will be a touch stretched. However, since the PS4S has a chunkier sidewall than most you should be totally fine. Fuel filler relocation article is currently in the works. I plan on using it as one of our GB updates within the next week...

    Working on it! Michelin has been tough to work with since COVID, so no guarantees that we will have 235/45-17 PS4S/AS4 availability by the end of the GB but we are definitely trying to make it work. -Geirsen

    The VW SM-10 utilizes design aspects from our Porsche 18x8.5" ET42 SM-10, which is a more fair weight comparison at 20.5lbs. The VW SM-10 has quite a few design differences and improvements (specific for VW) compared to the BMW SM-10. I appreciate the heads up! I will update our text to...

    That is correct, the 17x8.5" ET43 weighs 19.6lbs with paint/topcoat. Our listed weight figures are pulled from the average of weighing each set of samples in person, rather than CAD estimations. -Geirsen
