2000 - 2009 Honda S2000
Brake Clearance Information
In the engineering phase of wheel development we 3D scan factory brakes and review 2D aftermarket brake templates in order to optimize our barrel profiles and spoke curvatures. As a result, our wheels offer massive brake clearance so you can run the smallest possible wheel diameter.
Centering Ring Information
All APEX S2000 wheels are purpose built with a 5x114.3mm bolt pattern and 70.1mm center bore which allow enthusiasts to rotate wheels & tires on all four corners. To account for the smaller factory 64.1mm rear hub specifications, we offer aluminum centering rings.
Wider fitments for enhanced performance
Whether you enjoy spirited street driving or you are a weekend track warrior chasing lap times, these wheel & tire configurations are ideal for enthusiasts looking for a more dramatic improvement in performance and they are typically paired with performance oriented Summer tires or track oriented R-compounds.
Semi Slick: Hoosier R7 (40 TW), Hoosier A7 (40 TW), BFG R1 (40 TW), BFG R1S (40 TW), Toyo RR (40 TW)
Track focused fitments that require significant modifications
These wheel and tire configurations are best suited for hardcore track junkies and club racers competing for a spot on the podium. Everything from Extreme Summer tires to full Racing Slicks are commonly used depending on your experience behind the wheel, class rules, etc.
This is our most aggressive wheel fitment for weekend track warriors and hard core racers seeking maximum tire sidewall support. These 10" wheel widths will require supportive modifications commonly found on track cars, and may still lightly scrub the plastic fender liners at full steering lock or under heavy suspension compression.

Should I Dial in Negative Camber, and How Much is Right for me?
Whether you are a casual weekend track warrior that still enjoys your car on the street, or a hardcore racer competing for a spot on the podium, negative camber is a vital part of chassis setup that has many benefits. Not only will adding negative camber create more room for wider wheel and tire configurations, it more importantly improves handling, turn-in and tire longevity.
