Unofficial "Feeler" List

70 members joined the feeler list. Usernames removed for member privacy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Group Buy Details:

Official Payment collection day starts: February 5th
Official Close Date and last day to pay: February 12th
Product Ship Date: Mid - Late February


Free Shipping*
  • Free Shipping is available to members in the 48 mainland US states. Alaska, Hawaii, and International members will receive a $75 credit off the actual cost of shipping.
  • Non-mainland/international members: please contact us prior to ordering for a shipping quote. We'll either send you an invoice, or a code to adjust your order.
  • Free shipping and this discounted price are for product in this group buy only, and does not cover extras added to the cart such as spacers, lugs, center caps or other store products, unless those products also offer free shipping. Adding others parts may result in a shipping fee.
  • Due to package sizes, the cart may calculate an unreasonable shipping rate for some add on items. If this occurs, contact us prior to checkout, and we will adjust your extra item shipping costs if there is an issue.
  • Non Group Buy parts will ship with your wheel order unless requested in the comment field at checkout.

Local Pickup Discount:
  • Local customers who pick up their set will receive a $35 discount on their order in lieu of free shipping. Local pickup discounts are provided at time of pickup as a refund, and are not provided in advance. You MUST write "local pickup" in the comment field at checkout so that we do not ship your order. We will call you when your set is ready to schedule a pickup from our Livermore 94550 warehouse.

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: Orders will begin shipping out on February 19th, with almost all orders shipped by the end of February.
  • This is a Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment like a traditional order.
  • Due to the high volume extra time will be needed to process orders.
  • Wheel orders should ship in the order that they were received.
  • We cannot guarantee an exact ETA date. Our estimates have historically been conservative and within +/- two weeks of our ETA date.
  • Because this Group Buy offers free shipping, we cannot provide expedited shipping in the event of a delay. Minor delays may occur, please allow for extra order processing time.
  • We will keep everyone up to date of even minor changes if they occur via this thread.
  • Tracking numbers will be provided to all buyers, and important progress updates will be posted on this forum, and on corresponding product pages.


Availability
  • Some sizes and finishes will sell out.
  • Availability is limited to supply on hand.
  • No back-orders, or rain-checks. This discount is available while supplies last.
  • We will try to stay up to date with sold out finishes/sizes by posting them here and on the forums, as well as on the website.
  • Within a day of placing an order request, we will contact you if the wheels you have requested have been sold out. You will have the option to change to a different finish or fitment if you'd like, or you may cancel your order


How do I join? Payments and Sign-up info

This Group Buy is now CLOSED
Discount Tiers
  • The price you pay at sign up is based on how many members are on the feeler list.
  • At the close of the Group Buy, everyone's order/payment will be adjusted up or down to the final discount tier reached. In almost all cases, we end up reaching higher tier levels, which results in all or most paying members receiving additional discounts.
  • In the end, everyone pays the same price.
  • There is zero advantage in signing up at the last minute, yet most members still wait till the last ~2 days.
  • Early sign-ups promote others to sign-up, and gives confidence to the stragglers. If you know you're buying then pay early to keep the momentum going.

Refunds
  • There are NO refunds on Group Buy orders. Group Buys are special order, which is why payment is taken in advance
  • Only replacement of defective, or mis-shipped products are available.
  • Members cannot change colors or sizes after item receipt for Group Buy orders.
  • These products are priced at promotional pricing and do not carry that same return policy as our retail priced items. If you would like a traditional 30 Day return policy then we recommend purchasing at the retail price, and not via the Group Buy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



These are the available ARC-8 finishes. Top four has the flat face, and bottom four has the concave face.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wheel Details:

Manufacturing process:
All APEX wheels are flow-formed resulting in a light weight, track and street worthy wheel. Flow-forming significantly reduces weight in the barrel by rolling the barrel out into it's final shape using large wheels/disks applying high pressure. This step is the same step that monoblock forged wheels go through to shape their barrels. By doing this, the flow-formed wheel's barrel has the same density and strength as the barrel of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces rotational mass at the furthest point from the center, which is the most important weight savings area on a wheel.

Strength:
These wheels are fully JWL/VIA certified. Strength testing was done by the VIA in Japan.

Misc.
  • Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps.
  • Accepts OEM Roundel center caps.
  • Does not come with valve stems.
  • Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion.
  • BMW hub-centric - no centering rings
  • Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric.
  • TPMS compatible.

We have almost doubled the amount of participants in the feeler list in only 24 hours! With this rate, we will reach the higher discount tiers in no time!

I purchased a set of 18" ARC-8 s in the group buy last year. Now, I need 17" just for the rears for drag racing. Am I allowed to join the group buy? If yes, please count me in.

Unfortunately the Group Buy is only applicable for full sets, not pairs.

It's only been a few days, and we're already officially at the next discount tier level with a lot of interest! We're making great progress towards the next tier already, let's keep the ball rolling!

Only one away from the next discount tier, and we still have over a week left before the payment period opens. Remember, whatever discount level that the feeler list reaches will be the discount applied when the payment period opens!

Love the ARC-8s but having a hard time deciding here. '09 E90 sport (well, non-sport but will be installing ZSP springs and Koni FSDs, so...sport). I wanted a square setup for rotation and it was going to be 17x8.5's, but I prefer the concave over flat. So, would 17x9 ET30 be ok all around?

Thanks.

you should have no problems with 17x9 all around with a 245/40/17.

I have e90 LCI and will be getting 9.5" for the rear, my only concern is how wide a tire i can run.

Garage List
Can you confirm whether these will clear the brakes on an E92 M3? I am thinking of going with the 17s (17x10) as wheels and tires are much cheaper in these sizes.

There has been a few LCI e90s that have been able to use the 17x9" ET30 ARC-8 with 245/40/17 street tires on all four corners without any issues. If you are looking to go with a wider 255/40/17, the rear fenders do need to be rolled and cambered in.

The 17x10" ET25 will clear the brakes on an e92 M3, but in rare occurrences, there is a control arm securing bolt that has very tight tolerances, in which you can machine down 2.5mm to have better clearance.





However, the 17x10" ET25 ARC-8 is unfortunately not part of this Group Buy, as we do not have sufficient inventory levels to support a Group Buy of this fitment.

One week in, and we're already halfway to the maximum discount tier level with a lot of interest. We're already on the bring of reaching the next tier already, let's keep it up!

Are there any other e90 LCI's on here that plan on running the 9.5" rear?
Is 255 as wide as we can go on this rim with sport suspension?

David, sent you a PM, asking here as well.

Would the following combo work for my pre-LCI E91? It's lowered with ST coilovers.

Front - 17x9.0” ET30 on 245/40/17
Rear - 17x9.5” ET35 on 255/40/17
