Tire Slayer LS2 Powered FRS - Featuring APEX ARC-8 Wheels


Many of you may have been caught drooling over ft86club member @spitsnaugle's insanely clean LS2 powered FRS, as his build thread has been ongoing here since June of 2018. Having formally owned an LS-powered 240Z, Joel is quite familiar with the art of tire slaying. This machine quickly became a favorite amongst the APEX staff, and we recently assigned Shutter Fuel Media to capture it in the wild.

Lightweight 17" wheels in a chassis specific width and offset is one of the key modifications 86/BRZ track enthusiasts like Joel count on for maximizing performance, reducing rotational mass, and mitigating the seasonal tire budget. The 17.8 lbs ARC-8 was designed with brake clearance in mind, clearing a variety of big brake kits including the factory Brembo's found on the Performance Package BRZ and TRD SE 86 models.

Is a wider 17 wheel still on the plans for next year? I was so jelly when I saw the group buy for the BMW wheels, I opened up that form so many times in vain hopes that a bolt pattern option would magically show up!

Absolutely. To broaden our offering for the 86/BRZ community, we're currently working on a few new fitments as well as adding another design into the mix. Stay tuned, and thank you for your interest!
