Default Dual-Drilled Apex ARC-8

Hello,

Does anyone have the dual drilled Apex ARC-8 wheels? They no longer dual drill them, and when I asked if they could drill a set in 5x114.3 they said they weren't able/willing to.

I wonder if they would consider making a run of 17x9 ARC-8s in 5x114.3 if there was enough interest in them. Also, I know that they heavily advertise this wheel's brake clearance, I wonder how close their 17" ARC-8 is when placed over the 6 Piston STI brakes. I I've only seen one other 17" wheel fit over the 6 piston STI brakes, but the clearance was minimal. Spoke clearance shouldn't be an issue, but I wonder if the barrels have enough clearance to go over them.

Hi Vu,

Our 17x9" Mach V Awesome wheels are dual-drilled, and clear STI Brembos, including 6-pistons, although it's tight.

Those are some nice wheels, but the point is that I love the particular style of the ARC-8 (silimar to the bugeye BBS option wheels and the 22B wheels) but I need them in 5x114.3, and preferably in 17x9. I was looking for old dual-drilled BRZ/86 fitment Apex ARC-8s because they no longer offer that wheel dual-drilled and I asked them if they would consider it, to which they replied in the negative.

I also asked them if they would consider making them in 5x114.3, and they also replied in the negative.

Bump, I'm still looking for these old wheels. If you have a set of dual drilled Apex ARC-8 wheels that are silver, 17x9 42mm offset, I'd be willing to buy you a new set in exhange for your old ones
