    I've got a 2017 Base GT, and am planning to upgrade to the OEM PP 15" Brembos once I find new wheels.

    So does anyone have any experience with either the Tech 5 or Tech 7 version? I'm curious if they have good clearance for OEM PP brakes, are they hubcentric, and how much they weigh? I'm looking for a lower cost 19x9.5 or 10" flow formed wheel, but I can't seem to find much info out there beyond what's on the AM product pages:

    I'm also looking at the APEX SM-10, but not sure I can wait until December, and the RTR's are on sale right now ;)

    If they're made by RTR they should be fine. I bet the Apex are lighter and I know they clear the brakes. Give AM a call and ask them about clearing the brakes.

    AM claimed that they'll even clear the GT350 brakes, and so I went ahead and ordered them and will report back with their weight, measurements, etc.

    The SVE GT350S wheels clear PP 15" brakes as well.
