I hate waiting! (Which is hilarious since I've been waiting since February )

Also, what tire sizes are people getting? I originally bought 255/40/17 but after reading a lot of users saying that there would be fitment issues on stock suspension I returned them and bought 245/40/17 instead, which should be more of a direct fit. I'm so excited to get these on!
You'll get more out of 245's anyway haha, less mass and less loss of torque from gearing... plus less rolling resistance. Yeah 245's are even pretty close on stock suspension.

That's what I was hoping. I'm really somewhat nervous about the 245's rubbing, but I'm going to take APEX's word for it that they are a direct fit. I know all tires are different (I got Hankook Ventus V12's) but I'm REALLY hoping that I don't run into any issues.

Just got mine installed, Anthracite on Hankook Ventus V12 245/40/17's. Fitment looks great, although the rear camber needs to be adjusted slightly. I love these wheels so much, I was worried how the Anthracite color would look on a black BRZ, but I think it looks great.

I got mine as well, though I picked up another member's groupbuy order since I missed the initial offer. Three wheels have 245 40 17 RS3 V2s mounted on them right out. One of them came with a paint blemish, so it's still in the box, but Apex has been a bit slow in communicating on a possible exchange. They don't even pick up the phone, which really sucks since track season is like right now. In addition, one of the wheels has a slight wobble as well on the balancer, which I can probably zero out a bit more. We'll see how it does in the rear at speed.

Edit: Apex agreed to replace the blemished wheel. Yay!

Mind if I ask what your suspension setup is? It looks stock but I honestly can't tell anymore. I've looked at so many suspension setups and all the angles make the car look like they're on different ride heights.

Thanks in advance.
Do you have any pics of your car with the wheels on RCE yellows? I just put some on and I'm between these and RPF1s.

^ Absolutely beautiful! Did you get those wheels in the group buy? How's the fitment? Any rubbing?

Fantastic looking wheel! I love the silver wheel on a white car. I didnt have my car back when the groupbuy took place, I certainly would have jumped on it.
What was the group buy price?
Right now I am considering the RPF1 for roughly the same price as these wheels. RPF1 is ~2 lbs lighter but these wheels sure look awesome!

I asked Apex if these rims fit the 2017 BRZ with Performance Package Brembos. They replied they fit no problem!

Do you have any pics of your car with the wheels on RCE yellows? I just put some on and I'm between these and RPF1s.
I believe at that time i was on swift spec r springs and 3mm spacers and camber bolts.

Sorry for the crappy pictures. Better ones to come once I can detail the car and the weather clears up. I am loving the whiteline camberbolts, Apex ARC-8, and RCE yellows combo. Perfect setup for the daily imo.
