► APEX | Flow Formed Lightweight 5x100 86/BRZ Wheels - Built to Perform



APEX Flow Formed 5x100 86/BRZ Wheels

For over 12 years, APEX has been the go-to wheel for track enthusiasts and club racers looking for the perfect balance between strength, weight, and cost. APEX wheels address the concerns of more and more car enthusiasts: long term durability, optimized chassis-specific fitments, and enhancing performance. Our flow formed 5x100 wheels optimized specifically for the 86/FRS/BRZ community are designed to be strong, lightweight, and functional, and to top it off they all clear the factory Performance Package/TRD Brembo brakes as well as a variety of aftermarket BBK’s. Whether you enjoy your car day-to-day on the street or you're a hardcore track enthusiast/racer who needs wheels that can withstand track abuse, we have you covered.


➡︎ Perfected 86/BRZ chassis-specific fitments

➡︎ Clear factory Performance Package & TRD Brembo brakes

➡︎ 100% OEM compatibility, no extra hardware required

➡︎ Unbeatable warranty & 50% replacement program




Designs, Finishes, & Specifications
17" Available Now / 18" in Development



Size: 17x9" ET42
Bolt Pattern: 5x100mm
Center Bore: 56.1mm
Weight: ~17.8 lbs
VIA Registration: VIA-23-1700
MSRP: $269 ea.








Fit Matters


The right solution for every application. An optimized chassis setup begins with the right wheel and tire fitment, and without model-specific attention, maximum performance is compromised. We offer the ARC-8 in several different widths, offsets and diameters to give drivers a choice between straightforward bolt-on fitments to more aggressive specialty fitments depending their goals for the car. Daily drivers and professional racers don't have the same needs, so why should they be forced to buy the same exact fitment?

These wheels were developed exclusively for the 86/BRZ chassis in a square configuration which promotes a neutral handling experience while allowing drivers to efficiently rotate wheels and tires on all four corners of the car. This dramatically reduces the cost of tires over time. Corner carving & track enthusiasts: this is your wheel.



Massive Brake Clearance

Engineered to clear factory Brembo brake options, as well as a variety of aftermarket BBK’s. APEX wheels are specifically engineered to clear all OEM brake calipers including the Performance Package/TRD Brembo brakes. Our wheels are targeted at the serious performance-minded owner knowing many will elect to upgrade the basic OE caliper and disc setup as they get more serious with mods. If you do go with an aftermarket big brake kit (BBK), most big brake kits that clear 17” wheels will fit behind our low profile spokes without spacers, although some applications may need a thin spacer due to the added width of aftermarket calipers.

Confirmed BBK clearance on our 17x9.0” ET42 ARC-8 wheel include: Stoptech ST40 328mm, Essex-AP Sprint 4 pot 325mm, Essex-AP Endurance 4 pot 299mm, AP Racing 4 pot 330mm, Wilwood's kits, RacingBrake 4045, STi 4 Piston, 300ZX 4 pot, Alcon 4 pot 334mm, Sparta 4 pot 355mm kit (3mm spacer is recommended), Tarox B32-6 326mm kit, RR Racing Stage I through IV Competition kits. Wheels shouldn’t limit your choice of factory or aftermarket big brake kits, and big brake kits shouldn’t force you to run heavier, oversized wheels. View our fitment guides to confirm brake clearance, or contact us if you don't see your setup listed.



Weight Optimized


We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis to reinforce high-stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The end result is a flow formed wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.



True VIA - JWL & Beyond

Many companies promote their wheels as being certified by the VIA when they actually aren’t. That’s like using the USDA logo on food without permission. APEX wheels get officially tested and registered by the VIA in Japan, and we have the proof to back it up. Japan’s JWL is a standard for wheel load ratings. Our wheels exceed those ratings. Most manufacturers only meet the minimum, while some even fall below—yet they still claim to be JWL. Always verify load ratings before you buy. Learn more about VIA and JWL



Additional Features

Hub Centric - All APEX 86/BRZ wheels with a 5x100mm bolt pattern are purpose built featuring a 56.1mm center bore. No centering rings required.

Center Caps - All wheels come with our gloss Black APEX caps included, and optional gloss red APEX caps are also available. We also design our 86/BRZ wheels to be interchangeable with the OE cap for enthusiasts seeking a clean factory look.

Hardware - APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and wheel spacers. Wheel locks and stud conversion kits also work perfectly.

TPMS - All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If your vehicle isn’t equipped with sensors or you choose to bypass them for your track/race car, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.




Unbeatable Support


Warranty: All APEX wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty and 1 year finish warranty, so you can be confident in your purchase. Learn more

Replacement program: Let’s face it: Whether you are a weekend warrior practicing at the track, a club racer pushing the limit for a podium finish, or your daily commute involves crater-ridden minefields known as city roads, mistakes happen and parts will be damaged along the way. We are not really a performance company if we sell wheels in a way that penalizes the pursuit of driving at the limit. For this reason, we stepped up and created a program to significantly reduce the costs of properly maintaining a set of wheels by making replacements extremely affordable.

Our unique APEX360° Wheel Replacement Program offers eligible customers replacement wheels at 50% off our standard prices. Learn more




Chassis-Specific Fitment Guides

We know what fits. From direct bolt-on to all-out race fitments and everything in between. We've street and track tested extensively to save you the trial-and-error. View our fitment guides.

Yes. It's my son's car. Be careful which tires you run as some tires run wider than others. If you want more chamber without coilovers go 235/40R17 instead.

As jmark mentioned, these wheels will clear the factory Brembo's and a variety of other aftermarket BBK's without spacers.

Like any wheel, inner clearance to the strut will depend on the suspension type, vehicle ride height, tire size and brand as not all are created equal. We have has many customers install up to 255/40-17 tires without clearance issues (with negative camber dialed in).

Doesn't negative camber make hitting the strut more likely? How do coilovers help fix this?

This is a common misconception. Adjustable camber plates are mounted at the top of the strut, and when negative camber is dialed in, the wheel moves in harmony with the suspension. In other words, the tolerance between suspension and wheel/tire does not change

Some vehicles offer the ability to adjust camber at the knuckle (6th gen Camaro for example), and dialing in additional negative camber through this method would compromise wheel to strut clearance.

To be clear, adjustable camber plates can be purchased and installed on factory suspension, or on aftermarket coilovers. Some coilovers come with adjustable camber plates, but many require you to purchase them a-la-carte.

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 concave face profile is not available in the FT-86/BRZ fitment).
