18x9.5 et58 will work in the rear. A 9.5 will not fit in the front with stock fenders.
sorry I meant to mention a staggered fitment..

Tough choice between Forgestar F14s and these new APEX wheels...

No. Only the 18x8.5" ET45 and 18x9.5" ET58 wheels will work on the 1 series. None of the other wheels were designed for the 1 series application.

The 18x8.5" ET45 wheel can be run square with proper tire selection, or run in a staggered setup with the 9.5" ET58 rear.

Here are studio photos of the profile 1 wheels in the 3 different finishes. The photos taken from our blog in the first post are not the 1 series fitment.

Race Silver


Anthracite


Satin Black

What is the proper tire size for the 135?

Could you run a 235/40 and 265/35 size?

Or would a 225/40 and 255/35 size be better?

This would be on an eibach pro system kit setup....

Very interested in these

Do we have any pictures of the wheel straight on? I'd like to photoshop an anthracite wheel onto my LeMans Blue coupe.

Cheers,
Bryan

Your PM from Sunday was sent on the day we were flying back from Europe.

I apologize for being unable to respond.

We were out of the office/country for over a week. (See signature which still shows me as away) I returned with the flu that I'm still recovering from. It kept me completely away from most things in the office and I have not fully recovered.. Our site, and voicemail is still have our away message as of right now because of this.

We will post mounted pics as soon as possible

No worries . Thats definitely not a mad face lol. I think we're all just extremely excited about your new wheels....at least I know I am. I've been holding off buying wheels because of these

Oh and I use the mobile app since I travel a lot. It doesn't show signatures. Sorry I couldnt see your away MSG.

Get well

Forgestar are well made, light wheels. And you can order custom off-sets. One big down side - IMO - is they need centering rings.

Centering rings you can work around. I just use about 5-6 wraps of electrical tape around the hub. My issue is the finish doesn't hold up on the Forgestars. I have a lot of chips where the finish coat has popped off.
