APEX ARC-8 square set 18" w/tires

New set of 18x9,5 ET22 with 74.1 bore in hyper black + 275/35/18 Michelin PSS tires about 80% tread left. Wheels were test fitted on the car and driven for a day, not a single mark on those.

Priced for a quick sale at $1,800 with local pick-up around Boston, prefer not to ship.

Spacers 10mm and 15mm are available separately with a discounted price too.

Curious why you decided to bail on these wheels after buying them and test fitting them to the car? Just decided you did not want to run spacers?

Not working well with my current PSS9 set-up, even with the right combination of spacers - just barely clear front struts and rubbing liners in front with 50% lock.
Need to change alignment specs in front and do some fine tune on the rear fenders, too much hustle...

Currently running 19s BBG RS-GT, entire point was to go back to the 18s!

damn! even with a 10mm and 15mm spacer you're still having issues with these rubbing the fender liners?

I'm curious what will happen to me, as I just got a set of Style 32's in 18 x 9 ET24 form. Going to run 265/35/18's on them. Wheel was about 7mm from the strut, but about as close to the fender liner so I may have more issues with the liner than anything else. Have to get tires mounted first to see what I might need to make this work.

I have PSS9 set-up, with any other suspension results will differ.

What specific part of the PSS9 setup seems to be the problem that makes clearance tight? Is it a larger tube? Dimensions seem pretty similar visually to the OE coilover setup.. but the longer progressive springs on the bilsteins may be the difference?

I'm guessing it appears to be the lower spring plate maybe that causes the spring to sit lower that may then lead to clearance issues?
