Well now that I finally have a income again I can start buying parts. Right now I have the SVT/S2 combo and I want to upgrade that to the Apex kit. But I also want to get a set of 15 inch rims with azenis. Unfortunately I cant find any good deals on 15 inch rims right now. So now I'm just wondering if I should just go with the Apex and in a few months get the wheels or wait for the wheels (for however much longer) and get the Apeix kit later. Any opinions?

IMHO, tires will do more for you at this point...

Look at Focus "wagon wheels" in classifieds or on EBay or maybe even at Audi/BBS on EBay; the Audi/BBS's may need some minor machining to work--enlarge centerbores to 2.49".

I have the same S2/SVT setup and in my opinion unless you're going to upgrade to coilovers over some hard core stiff springs (H&R race or stiffer) you'll be much better off with good tires. The difference between the stock SVT and apexi kit is much less than the difference between street tires and R compounds or near R's like the Azenzis.

If its track/auto-x only wheels and tires definately go for them.

If its street, well I dunno I still wouldnt want to run an R on the street (cant afford it)
