Need wheel help 18x9.5 et58 fit?

Post by Hzgray » Thu May 25, 2017 4:59 pm

I'm thinking about 2 different wheels:

VMR 810 18x8.5 et35 18x9.5 et45 gunmetal
APEX ARC8 18x8.5 et38 squared. hyper black I could keep stock tires for now.

I've seen the VMR's on G8/PPV/SS but not the Apex, both are flow forged; APEX are a little flatter faced/lighter.

I like them both. Any thoughts on quality, fitment, style?

I cant speak too much on the VMR's but I know the Apex wheels are pretty decent quality. I know lots of guys who race BMWs that run them.

I think either on would be cool to see on a PPV, something a little different.

Thanks. I've now found some 18x9.5 et58 wheels. They look to sit inwards about 30mm from stock wheels. After crawling under the car it appears they will not rub but want to make sure. I would run these with 18x8.5 et45 in front. Appreciate any assist.

Thanks, those look good too. decisions.. I want to stick with 18" for weight savings and using my 235/50r18s which are almost brand new on the fronts. One of the wheel vendors didn't think the et58s would work on the rears.. so that's off the table now.

I have the apex 18s on my bmw. Amazing wheels. I have 17s and a more aggressive offset, very light wheels.

I test fit them on my caprice for shits and giggles but 17s with a short tire just doesn't give you a good idea of what they will look like.

I personally had VMR710 wheels and they where heavy and I though the finish was very low quality. I wouldn't buy VMR again
