    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    The 17" and 18" VS-5RS are very similar in terms of design philosophy and overall profile. The VS-5RS design family has a significantly deeper and narrower spoke style/shape compared to the flow formed SM-10, which is a result of a performance-optimized wheel design with high bending stiffness...

    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    Quick edit here, as I misspoke in regards to the barrel design of the 18" VS-5RS. The 18x9" ET42 VS-5RS does NOT have a tapered barrel outside of the drop well, while the 18" SM-10s do have a tapered barrel design. That said, barrel clearance on the 18x9" ET42 VS-5RS should technically be better...

    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    Its tough to say, as the 18" VS-5RS uses a hybrid barrel with a tapered inner diameter that has a slightly different design compared to the SM-10s. This is why certain caliper designs (and placement if a conversion bracket is used), can cause barrel interference issues even in situations where a...

    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    We don't have any data on those brakes since its an OEM kit and we would need to physically scan them to test clearances. Unfortunately, we haven't found any cars running those brakes local to our office. That said, we have tested the new 18x9" ET42 VS-5RS to clear the Brembo 4-pot 365x29mm...

    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    Actually, yes! We were able to make a few spoke changes to the 18x9" ET42 VS-5RS to allow us to clear the main VW BBKs to make production worth while. While brake clearance won't be as great as we initially wanted (i.e it can't clear the 8-pot RS3/TTRS brakes like the 18x9" ET42 SM-10 can), it...

    GTI PP 340mm front brake conversion on a 4Motion GSW.

    Thank you all for the insight, very helpful in clearing things up! Would you say there is any particular benefit with running the GTI knuckles? I might be able to get a set of take-offs for free but if they aren't required for the brake swap and there aren't any added benefits, I likely won't...

    GTI PP 340mm front brake conversion on a 4Motion GSW.

    Hey all, I spend most of my time here answering questions and providing recommendations for wheel and tire fitments, so I was hoping to cash-in on some of that good karma to potentially get some help and insight to a few questions of my own. The topic in question is brakes. More specifically...

    As previously mentioned, our wheels do not come with any valve stems but we do offer color matched metal stems for $10 a piece on the website. Otherwise, you can just use the standard universal valve stems that your tire shop will provide during mounting/balancing. Either will work just fine...

    Official APEX VW VS-5RS Forged 17" Wheel Thread

    Totally hear you guys. The initial launch fitment for this new design was specifically designed for the TTRS/RS3 chassis, and while it can technically work on the VW side of things, it really isn't an ideal fitment for the R/GTI (unless you're running fender flares or have a dedicated race car)...

    Looking good! A set of red center caps would really make the wheels pop a lot more on that car. Its hard to tell from the pictures but what Contis did you end up going with? I assume they are 255/40-17? -Geirsen
