    ► Official APEX VW SM-10 Flow Formed Wheel Thread

    Before I had my 17x9 Apex’s I ran 18x9 ET45 Neuspeed RSe11Rs with 255/35/18 Nexens. Really loved that wheel setup. Needed a 3mm spacer in the rear to clear the fuel filler neck. Probably couldn’t fit 265 with my a particular setup but I knew a few people with Golf Rs that ran that size...

    Will_s Night Blue GTI daily turned track build

    Yes I’ve considered dropping the pan, but should anything happen that would basically give Toyota blank check to deny a warranty repair.

    200tw tires for Track use

    Will_s Night Blue GTI daily turned track build

    I got mine for MSRP, ordered specifically from a MSRP only dealer. It was like $31.8k before taxes, I think $36.5 OTD. I paid an additional $1000 for an add on insurance that covers the windshield (OEM glass and install/sensor alignment) for 4 years, which seemed worth it as I have had bad luck...
