Put these on my 2018 BRZ 50th Anniversary Edition
Wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 245/40

All stock suspension, with Performance Pack






Very happy with how they turned out. Fills out the fenders (a little bit of poke on the fronts but no worries) and grips like a monster compared to the stock setup.

Many have asked us about the great features and details of the ARC-8 wheel design, and while images are helpful, they simply do not do the wheel justice. We took things a step further by creating the following video. (Note: the deep concave face profile is not available in the FT-86/BRZ fitment).

Did you run into any issue with fitment on stock shocks with the prokit?
I'm looking to run the same setup later this month. Car looks great

Nope, it's been great the past week or so. I'm liking the ride and look a lot.

WOW. Matte Bronze on black with the red PP brakes coming through is a killer combo Looking forward to sharing these with other 86/BRZ enthusiasts. Can you give me a rundown of any suspension mods and your alignment (camber) settings?

They're actually Cadillac Brembos up front, with EvoX rear brembos, both on STI rotors.
  • Counterspace garage spec'd Tein Flex A coilovers, I raised them 8mm from their recommended specs for better axle angles
  • 3.1˚ camber front, 2.2˚ camber rear
  • Running Hoosier R7 245/40/17 -- they're wider than a 255- I get rub with the inner fender at full lock.

Curious what are the other theoretical sizes you could do with this wheels design that fit BRZ with Performance Package brakes.

If you were to make these in say 17x9 +35, could you do 78mm concavity? I like the wheel overall, but in 9" the flat face is a deal breaker for me.
Could you make 17x8 +38ish?
