So you test fitted (4) 18x10 ET25 w/ 275/35/18 to your car and it works well? No spacers?

Nice, did you buy the APEX wheels just from their site or do you recommend another website? I'm thinking about a similar set-up for the track.

no got them BNIB from another forum member in the area for a good deal. drove down and got them about month ago. think the price is pretty similar wherever you buy though so apex is as good as anywhere to get them. thought about the arc-8 as well since its couple pounds lighter but dont like the design quite as well. partial to the p40 look as i now have 2 sets of knockoffs. my vmrs are just heavy and getting kind of beat from track use. wheels become a wear item as you track more often. still will use the vmrs with ad08s for winter and wet days and the apex with nt01s for the dry stuff.

Basically cording or close to it. A set easily lasts me a season of 10-12 events, though, and they get faster and stickier as they wear down to just two circumferential grooves. They're also not bad in the wet when they have full tread, but don't try them in the wet when they've worn down--scary stuff!

im so used to the squared off shoulders of the ad08s that even a slight rounding like these looks weird to me now. i will probably hate my ps2 whenever i get those back on for a while. my garage is starting to look like a parts store.

FYI - They won't fit without spacers in the front with KW Suspension.... Based on your signature it looks like you have every mod except suspension

Have fun with the wheels!

I don't think that this is true (or at least entirely true). I run 18x10.5 +25 square with 275 and 285 RS3s. While I am required to have a 5mm spacer up front with my KW sleeve kit, the previous owner of the wheels/tires didn't run any spacers with his KW CS coilovers.

I'm not worried about it. If I have slight rub at full lock I don't care.

well they are all mounted and balanced. put one on the rear just to see what it looked like. not used to that beefy look. dont like it yet. also have a rear spacer with my vmrs which i will have to pull i guess each time i run the nt01s. might clear but probably shouldnt chance it. last picture is my 2 sets on the wall and one on the car which you cant really see.

Yeah, I know. I just wanted to make sure anyone reading that post knew. Your rub is diameter related, not fitment related. It will go away once the tire and/or the liner wears.

What size is your spacer? I run 18x10.5 +20 (+25 with a 5mm spacer) with a 285 RS3 in the rear with no rubbing.
