For any new wheels for the 86 or other JDM markets, we will be taking out time to ensure any new offering is feature rich, weight optimized, and competitive with the wide range of products already on the market. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but be sure to keep an eye out for updates!

The only reason I didn't pick up a set of ARC-8 over the black Friday sale was because I was hoping the SM 10 would be available before autocross season starts.

They won't be ready in time for the coming season unfortunately. We'll be sure to keep everyone updated with any progress on this project. Reach out for additional updates at any time!

I picked up a set of ARC-8 yesterday. Thanks for making wheels with all the details for a perfect fit. Satin black to keep with the theme on my hyperblue.

Yep, they have them in 17x9, see link below, scroll down to 'sizes & prices' section:

https://www.apexraceparts.com/our-wh...ed-vs5rs.html/

I am waiting to see whether they will do them in 18inch as we have a better choice of tyre here in the UK.

They look great on the M2 (black on black), can't wait to see them our Twins.

Second thoughts, they may be anthracite....

Appreciate all the interest for the VS-5RS design. 17" fitments are on the works and expected in late 2022. We are still discussing 18" options though we do not yet have any sort of ETA. Stay tuned for updates!

PS, Brushed Clear looks amazing on all exterior colors, especially black

Oh my...

Thanks for sharing. Looks like Brushed Clear it is then lol

Do you have the wheels specs and the suspension specs ? It looks exactly my tS except for the wheels.

I will be running CS this season for sure but I am curious how 17x9 vs-5rs will look on stock suspension since this is my daily driver

Oops, sorry for the slow reply. The car in the second pic is running the 17x9" ET35 with a 245/40-17 tire.

Nice action shots on how they fit.
RCE SS-1 lowered about an inch with 17x9 +42 with Falken RT660 245/40R17. No rubbing.
