Any Apex EC-7 Pics? Know the orders have been released, What's the verdict?

If you have received your EC-7's, rock them with pride. I'm getting mine this week and I want to see the fit on stock, drop and rolled configurations.

i just uploaded a dirty picture on the showroom thread with some detailed info, so check it out.

the verdict to me is that these are damn good wheels for the money. they were surprisingly light, high load rated, well made (hub, tpms, oem caps fit perfect), have good concavity, finish & aggressive offset options. They even balanced out well with very little weights.

eh, let me save you some time. here's the craptastic picture.

Fitment.

What are the wheel and tire specs?. I am on the fence with a spacer, those fall pretty flush, I went with the direct fit 9.5 et 35 on a 255/30.....did a test fit today...but thinking a 5mm would be spot on... any thoughts?

Test Fit

Ok , got em in the mail, unfortunately I cant get to the Tire Shop till next week, but I managed to unbox them and get a test fit going.

First impression.
The wheel came out the box like a feather. a lot lighter than anything I have owned in the past. I am in NYC so Its a gamble getting these on before the winter but I don't track and outside of a few go fast parts I am cosmetically stock.

Little enthused an all so I'll get some test fit pics to envision the spacing needed to roll right with stock functionality.

Up close and personal.

Test Fit looks pretty flush, maybe a 5mm space, extended bolts and blue extended lugs to match.

Those look great! Also like the amount of drop you have - what did you do? Also, did you need a fender roll or anything?

I'm still stock, looking to get things set up the way I want and not certain which way to go....
