Introducing The All-New VS-5RS Forged Wheel For VW/Audi!

Our lightest design ever is now available for MQB VW/Audi applications! Available in our most popular track-focused fitment, the 17x9" ET42 VS-5RS is the ideal fit for those wanting the perfect balance between weight and strength. Compared to our flow formed SM-10, wheel weights have been reduced and load ratings increased while the 17" diameter offers more affordable tire costs for your average HPDE participant.

The Design:

Built For The Track:

This 17” deal includes our 17x9 ET42 VS-5RS, a wheel optimized specifically to offer the best track performance possible for your VW/Audi. Pivoting from our popular VW/Audi flow formed SM-10 design, the all-new forged VS-5RS offers the next level of performance for hardcore track enthusiasts. Slotting in at 16.9lbs, the VS-5RS is the lightest wheel we have ever offered for the VW/Audi market. With a more robust inner lip and a higher load rating of 1,600lbs, the VS-5RS is also the strongest wheel we have ever offered for the VW/Audi market, helping prevent bent wheels and keeping you on track. Paintless knurled bead seats popular track day tires, such as 255/40-17 Hankook RS4s, ensuring wheel/tire sets stay balanced throughout your HPDE season.

The Details:



This deal is now live and locks on August 9th, 2022 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. The wheels are currently scheduled to ship out in September for all VW fitments. Visit for more information.

Discount: Up to $300.00 off plus Free Shipping*
