US VAG specialists APR are well known for their high-end tuning parts, but this rather epic jump into the premium wheel world seems to have taken their German obsession to a whole new level with S01 Forged Wheels.
Fully-forged for an extreme weight saving (the 8.5×19 weigh in at less than 9kg for starters), what’s perhaps most interesting about their new S01 here is that they’ve stuck firmly to the cars they know best by only making it available in a 5×112 PCD for Audis and VWs.
This also extends to the fact they are designed to use the OEM-style ball-bolts. Meaning you can’t fit them on other 5×112 cars (like Mercs, Minis and the odd SsangYong) without a whole load of ball-ache. Nope, it looks like they’re keeping it exclusively VAG here.
Although, being DOT, VIA and JWL approved, these aren’t just OEM quality, they’re probably significantly beyond that too.
Sizes: 8.5×19, 9×20
