My gangup email saying it was all sorted and ready to ship was the last one I got, no tracking one. May not be out yet who knows.

Same here. I never got a tracking number. They just showed up, which was fine by me!

I'm going with coming from CA to VA, last time I bought wheels from them it took a lot longer than I would have thought so maybe they will show this week, just always like to get a tracking number either way.

I got mine in Texas on Friday, just as a data point.

Unfortunately, our stickers and plate frames are located at our office and not the warehouse, which doesn't allow us to easily throw them into orders as you might think.

That said, and this goes for everyone in this thread, if you email me a set of 5 HQ pictures of your new wheels mounted up I can arrange for a care package of stickers/Tshirt/plate frame to be sent out in return. Feel free to send those pictures to geirsen@apexraceparts.com with your original order number and your preferred T-shirt size. :cool:

Apex VS-5RS 17x9/ET42, with Yokohama A052 255/40-17. 2017 Alltrack S on Silvers Neomax 10k/14k Swift springs (re-valved by Randy O’Brien), 034 ball joints, 25mm rear sway bar w/Moog end links. -3.7 front/-2.2 rear camber, zero toe.

Front fender screw mod was already done, and the front plastic fender cladding had been dremeled quite a bit as I had rubbing with 245/40-18 Falken RT-660’s on Enkei TS-10 18x8/ET45’s with the previous VWR wagon springs. No rubbing at all on the front with current suspension.

I drilled the rear passenger felt fender liner to move the screw a little to the right, which pulled the felt closer against the fuel filler. No rubbing at all.

Driver’s side rear rubbed on the plastic fender cladding, so I dremeled it similar to the front fenders. Passenger side rear cladding did not rub, but I dremeled some of it away, just to be sure.

Looking forward to Autocross this weekend.
