What did you decide on in the end?

Did you find the Apex wheels were cheaper to buy from America than over here?

I'm going for Cup2s at the front for now and when the rear Apex wheels arrive I'll put Cup2s on them too. So for now it's the NS-2R 100s at the back on OEM wheels and Cup2s upfront on Apex ARC-8s

I actually ordered the wheels from the UK but wished I'd dealt direct with Apex now. Price wise is very similar.

That is going to handle nicely once you get the cup2's on front and back

I've just seen on the Apex website that the rears are on back order till late November :shock:
