Wheel Directory: Velox PG-5S 17x7.0 +42




I've had these wheels for a little over a year. I used them for CS autocross class and had Hoosiers mounted on them. Due to changes in the classes coming up I sold the Hoosiers and now have 225/45/17 BFG Rivals mounted on them and started using them as my daily driver wheels.

These wheels are discontinued, I got one of the last sets, and actually have 5 wheels since they aren't making anymore. They are forged and weigh 13.8lbs.

This is at my work, I actually have no idea whose SWP BRZ that is, although I see it almost every day. Yes, the BRZ qualifies for fuel efficient parking.

Same company? Didn't know that.

Remember the conversation on Facebook about autocross wheel, this is exactly what I was meaning was needed. Just bring this back These would look amazing in gold.

Sister brands. Velox has had these wheels since the 2001... They also had an even lighter version at 11.5 lbs.. but again all goes back to the question of how much are people willing to pay...

Is a re-run even a slight possibility? What would be the cost for a set and minimum required to make it happen, if possible? As soon as one of these interviews picks me up, I'll be in the market for new 17x7 +42-45 wheels. Right now, my only choice is RPF1s (once the backorder ends). Feel free to message me on Facebook about logistics if this could happen.

Would anyone happen to know the Velox PG-5S hub bore? I'm going on a road trip to pick up a set and I'd like to know if I need to order some ring or not.
