Post New: APEX EC-7 Wheel Released



APEX is proud to introduce its new EC-7 wheel. This new wheel addresses the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fit and performance. With the increase of faster and heavier cars being used in racing, HPDEs, and spirited driving, the EC-7 was designed and engineered to handle extreme abuse on track and street, offer a wide range of direct fitments, while producing a lightweight wheel. The new features offered make the EC-7 the perfect compliment to the APEX ARC-8.



Race Silver Finish - Profile 2


An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel fitment. Without the perfect offsets, maximum tire widths and the potential of your car are always compromised. With this in mind, the EC-7 has three unique face profiles ranging from shallow to deep concavity resulting in 13 unique 18? sizes. This wide range of fitments allows for vehicle-specific caliper clearance, offsets, and tire widths, creating the most optimal setup possible.

Available Sizes and Weights and Pricing:
18x8.5" ET45 - 19.55lbs - $294
18x8.5" ET35 - 20.10lbs - $294 - E9x 3-Series Fitment
18x9.0" ET42 - 20.75lbs - $299
18x9.0" ET31 - 21.25lbs - $299
18x9.5" ET58 - 20.65lbs - $319
18x9.5" ET43 - 21.55lbs - $319 - E9x 3-Series Fitment
18x9.5" ET35 - 21.70lbs - $319 - E9x 3-Series Fitment
18x9.5" ET22 - 21.75lbs - $319
18x10" ET43 - 21.70lbs - $329 - E9x 3-Series Fitment
18x10" ET33 - 22.50lbs - $329 - E9x 3-Series Fitment - pre-LCI
18x10" ET25 - 22.45lbs - $329
18x10.5" ET27 - 22.50lbs - $349
18x11" ET25 - 23.35lbs - $359

Available Finishes
Race Silver
Anthracite
Satin Black

The EC-7 adds 7 new BMW sizes not available in the ARC-8 design. The 3 face profiles offer maximum concavity and reduced weight. This avoids the common adaptation of a single face profile for unintended fitments or dependency on spacers.



The EC-7's spoke profile has been designed with a curve to provide additional caliper clearance. It can clear a BBK spacer free on applications where the ARC-8 could not. A significant improvement to the EC-7 is the increased barrel clearance that now allows for the 18? version of this wheel to properly clear the Brembo 380mm BBK.

Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the EC-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called “roll forging” or “spin forging”, produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. We’ve produced an even stronger wheel by combining the strength of the lightweight barrel with a more robust face design. The EC-7 welcomes endurance racing and potholes.

Designed for BMW applications, the EC-7 accepts TPMS sensors, factory lug bolts or stud conversion kits, and OEM roundel center caps. All wheels come with APEX center caps.



Warranty Summary:
2 year Structural, 1 year limited finish warranty guarantees wheels will be free from defects in materials, workmanship and paint finish under normal and reasonable use.

What would be the widest setup for a track staggered on e92?

Possibly a

Front
18x9.5" ET35 - 21.70lbs
with 255/35/18

and

Rear
18x10" ET33 - 22.50lbs
with 275/35/18
?

Wow, these are significantly heavier than the Arc-8's. When are the Arc-8's going to be available in a 18x9.0" ET31?

The 18x9" ET42 ARC-8 is 18.65lb and requires a 12mm spacer to get to ET30. Our 12mm spacer is 0.85lbs. Once you account for spacer weight to adjust for offset, the new wheel is only 1.75lbs heavier.

At this time we do not have plans for an ARC-8 version since this is a niche fitment, but it may be produced sometime in the future.

Very nice looking. Looks almost like BBS CH, but more concave.

This is kinda off topic, but

I see that there is difference at concavity with same width wheels, but differend offsets.

Is there difference at concavity with Arc-8
Example: Is 18x9.5 et22 more concave than 18x9.5 et35?

I just updated the size list by adding 18x10" ET43 with weight info.


The concavity is different for certain sizes due to caliper clearance needs or offset limitations.

The ARC-8 concave wheels all share the same exact concavity, which is why it's limited to a few available sizes. 18x9.5", 18x10", 18x10.5" all have the same spoke concavity for the ARC-8.

WOW!! looks awesome, I've always thought that the only thing that governs how much a wheel sticks out is the ET.. but my friend tells me that an 11" ET25 would stick out more than a 10" ET25? Is this true? If so.. does a 10.5" ET27 stick out more than a 10" ET25? Sorry for the noob questions, my mind was blown when I found out the width matters lol. Thanks

1810″ ET25 – 22.45lbs
1810.5″ ET27 – 22.50lbs
1811″ ET25 – 23.35lbs

What would be a ideal fitment for a 07 e92 335, I'd like a 275 rear tire....no rubbing obviously

These wheels look awesome, I love the concavity

Any chance of hyper black like the 17s you guys just ran? Maybe down the line?

Not an e9x, but gives a good idea (I found these on m3forum.net, I hope you guys don't mind):
