Those look great, please put on scale and post up... design looks like it could keep them more in line with stocks atleast.
CVTs are my favorite wheel design they are just tanks at 29-30 lbs

Edit: nvm, just checked the website, nearly 32lbs!
sweet googly moogly you’re right. When I initially checked they were listed at 27 a piece which is on par with the Pretoria reps I currently have. These will be returned or sold, apr in satin black are on order now.

Meh, fake center lock is poser.

Have you found these to be any different from the rings available through Amazon or anywhere else?

yeah i just stopped opening that thread after a bit, haha.
it became cancerous, as many of Arin's threads do on here. I will, and do, talk shit on APR all day long on the forums but out of sheer respect for another human being i don't want anything to do with the lambasting. he's just a dude making a living, I wouldn't direct my negative feelings about his company towards him.

i've seen him say some whack shit tho lol

I've never ordered rings through amazon, so can't really comment. I will say, they are a higher class ring than other metal hub rings I've used before. Well machined and good angle to mount on the hub. I did a test fit on my hub last night and they went on easier than spacers.

and I haven't rocked anything APR since my 02 Passat back in '06

Vossen & Rotiform really need to put out some LW wheels. They have many great styling choices but all so weighted.
I feel like that's not their market. At least with Rotiform. There's plenty of companies putting out lightweight wheels with a race of "How light can we go?". But you want absolute tanks? You know to get Rotiforms.

Agreed. I feel like they cater to the "low & slow" scene. Of which, euro's make up a big chunk of. You don't see too many many muscle cars or track rats with rotiforms.

**Nothing wrong with any scene, just pointing out what we already know

I've actually gone back and forth between the likes of Oz or Konig and Roti and fifteen52. I'm not going to see a track in the foreseeable future and my planned mod path is as much aesthetic and it is performance so why limit myself?

Truth! On my air'd out MK4 GLI, Rotiforms were THE go-to.....while stage II, I could have cared less, but leaned more towards rolling low over speed.
