OEM+ Fitments


Recommended for most types of street and performance driving. Allows proper front-to-rear tire rotation to extend tire life & improve handling balance.

  • The Aggressive 18" Bolt-On Wheel Package

    • The most aggressive bolt-on 18"  setup without the possibility of needing spacers with nearly all aftermarket and OEM setups. Wheels and tires will be an inch wider than the OEM setup, but they don't require any extra work to prevent rubbing.

      • Front: 18x9” ET30 with 245/40-18 tires
        Rear: 18x10” ET25 with 275/35-18 tires

      • Direct fit.

      • With certain tire brands and low ride heights, front fender liner rubbing may occur.

  • The More Aggressive 18" Wheel Package

    • Go wider with 18s. Perfectly flush with minimal modifications. This fitment maximizes wheel width using all available space within the fenders. Tires will appear ever-so-slightly stretched in order to clear the fenders.

      • Front: 18x9.5” ET35 with 245/40-18 tires
        Rear: 18x10.5” ET22/ET25 (or ET27 depending on design) with 275/35-18 tires

      • Available in all APEX designs. 

      • Avaible in Konig Hypergram (the lightest option!)

      • Front 5mm or larger spacers required with certain aftermarket suspensions. When spacers are added, front negative camber may be required.

      • Rear negative camber and/or rolled fenders may be required.

      • Tires will appear slightly stretched (see above photo).

      • 265/35-18 front and 285/35-18 rear tires may work with additional negative camber.

      • With certain tire brands and low ride heights, fender liner rubbing may occur.

  • The Spacer-Free Aggressive 18" Wheel Package

    • Go wider with 18s, spacer-free. Same as the fitment above but uses a lower front offset to avoid the spacer requirement that may be necessary with certain suspensions. As a result, more front negative camber will be required to prevent rubbing.

      • Front: 18x9.5” ET22 with 245/40-18 tires
        Rear: 18x10.5” ET22 (or ET27 depending on design) with 275/35-18 tires.

      • Available in all APEX designs.  

      • At least -2.0º of front negative camber required.

      • Rear negative camber and/or rolled fenders may be required.

      • Tires will appear slightly stretched (see above photo).

      • 265/35-18 front and 285/35-18 rear tires may work with additional negative camber.

      • With certain tire brands and low ride heights, fender liner rubbing may occur.

The Go-To Staggered Race Wheel Package

  • Put down the power. The fitment you'll see on dedicated track cars everywhere. It's made to work with the mods you'll already have such as a high-clearance race suspension, aggressive negative camber, and upgraded brakes with rotors up to 380mm.

    • Front: 18x9.5" ET35 with 275/35-18 tires
      Rear: 18x10.5" ET22/25 or ET27 with 295/30-18 tires

 

The Most Aggressive Race Wheel Package

  • Really put down the power. The most aggressive fitment we have available. Designed to fit cars with widebody kits or fender flares. Camber and spacer requirements vary depending on suspension type. Some level of trial-and-error is to be expected when mounting these wheels.
