► APEX | 18" PS-7 Wheels - *New Wheels!*

APEX 18” PS-7 Wheel

The APEX PS-7 is the first of a new line of lightweight, street-focused wheels arriving in June in BMW-specific fitments. The development of this new line will allow us to continue developing track and race-specific designs separately, while also bringing our expertise and lightweight technology to the typically heavy and aesthetically focused street market. The PS-7 brings long needed improvements to a mesh design that’s been seriously lacking in features, and left enthusiasts with only heavy alternatives.



Available Fitments
18x8.5" ET35 - 20.50lbs - Profile 1 - $289
18x8.5" ET20 - 20.80lbs - Profile 2 - $289
18x9.0" ET31 - 20.60lbs - Profile 2 - $299
18x9.5" ET43 - 20.70lbs - Profile 1 - $319
18x9.5" ET33 - 21.20lbs - Profile 2 - $319
18x9.5" ET22 - 21.50lbs - Profile 3 - $319
18x10.0" ET25 - 21.70lbs - Profile 3 - $329
18x10.5" ET22 - 22.50lbs - Profile 3 - $349
18x11.0" ET25 - 23.00lbs - Profile 3 - $359




PS-7 Product Information:
Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the PS-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming manufacturing process. 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 most significant part of the wheel, as it has the greatest impact on rotational mass. Even with key strength improvements that add weight in select areas, static weights are reduced by 20% on average versus cast alternatives.

More aggressive wheel widths and offsets were selected versus our line of race-oriented wheels, allowing for a flush fit without spacers. Initially available in 18” and 19” diameters, the PS-7 is produced using three unique face profiles with increasing spoke concavity. We designed these these face profiles to significantly increased concavity on many applications that are traditionally more conservative. A total of 17 BMW specific sizes in three finishes are initially being released.

Strength improvements were made to help specifically address the unique abuses of the street where low-profile and stretched tire fitments are used. To help fight wheel bends, we’ve increased the thickness of the wheel’s inner lip. Load ratings exceed JWL requirements, and all sizes have been crush tested in Japan, earning them official VIA certification and registry marks. Additionally, the barrel’s diameter increases sharply after the drop center, improving big brake kit clearance.

Performance luxury vehicles deserve much more than heavy cast wheels. The PS-7 combines racing inspired lightweight engineering with desirable street styling, to produce the ideal wheel of choice.


Available Finishes
  • Hyper Silver
  • Anthracite
  • Satin Black

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.

Do you have any pics of mixed concavity setups? I was thinking about 9.5" P3 out back and 8.5" P1 up front, I'd like to get an idea of how much different they stand out next to each other on a car if possible

You can fit the 18x9" ET31 and 18x9.5" ET33 on your 2007 335i pre-LCI with 255/35/18 and 265/35/18 street tires. Any taller sidewall than that would cause the tires to easily rub on your fenders, especially if you lower your car. If you want large sidewalls with better wheel protection and a more street friendly ride, the 17" ARC-8's may be your answer.

Unfortunately we do not have any photos of mixed concavities on an e9x non-M currently for the PS-7's. We are working on getting cars to come in for test fitments as quickly as possible.

i thought the widest wheel i can fit in the front was 8.5 fr and then 9.5 rear and man i love the 18 ps7 but im just so worried about the chicago streets and i think 17s look way to small unless i slam the car which i dont ever plan on doing living in chicago lol, can i run 235/40/18 and then back 255-265/40/18?

**and what care the concave profiles for the front and rear ?

You can run the 18x8.5" ET35 and 18x9.5" ET33 with 235/40/18 and 265/35/19. The rears will definitely rub with a 40 aspect ratio as the sidewall would be too tall. The e9x can take the 18x9" ET31 in the front, and that's about as wide as you can get in stock form with street tires. The 18x8.5" ET35 is a Profile 1, while the 18x9" ET31 and 18x9.5" ET33 is a Profile 2 concavity.

Those look great, dbjb! Any more pictures? I ordered an anthracite set for my alpine E92, but one wheel was damaged during tire installation so I've had to wait a bit longer. Looks like the wait will be worth it, though.

I have a few more but the quality is subpar. I need to take more shots.

I'll tell you something. Although I'm very happy with the look, I'm even happier with the ride and performance. I switched from heavier 19" wheels with lower profile tires to this. I told my fiancé, I love my ride again. Makes it feel brand new. I hope you experience the same.

Glad to hear you like them. The wheel finish looks perfect against alpine white. Thanks for the preview of what they will look like - I just need to get mine mounted now.

My 2012 e92 328i came with 225/45/18 tires, can I fit these tires on the 18 x 8.5 et 35 rim? My stock 397 rims are 18 x 8.0 et 34.

Update: apparently my car originally came with 225/45/17 tires and somewhere along the line, before I bought it, it was fitted with style 397 rims (from a f30) with 225/45/18 tires. So now my tire height is 1-inch taller than stock; which means at 70 MPH my speedometer is reading about 3 MPH slower than normal.

While the 225/45/18 tires can work on the 8.5" wheels, the sidewall is a bit tall and the tires will be slightly undersized. If it's only temporary, you can absolutely use it, but like you've already learned, the speedometer would be a little bit off. The recommended tire sizes for the 18x8.5" ET35 wheel would be 235/40/18.

The lug bolts on that e92 looks like they're aftermarket open end extended lug bolts, perhaps Project Kics or Muteki.

The 18x9" ET31 can fit on the front of your LCI e90 pretty easily, but the 18x10" ET25 would not be able to fit with a 275/35/18 tire without major fender modifications due to the aggressive offset and width of the wheels. The 18x9.5" ET35 would be an easier fit for the rear with the 275/35/18 tire (though still aggressive) and would still require both negative camber and rolled rear fenders. If your end goal is to fit the 275/35/18 on the rear of your LCI e90, the EC-7's in 18x9" ET31 and 18x10" ET43 would be your best choice.

The fronts can surely work on your LCI E90, but a 235/40/18 is quite stretched on a 9" wide wheel, so we usually recommend the 245/40/18 size instead. The rears we would recommend a 255/35/18 instead and rolled rear fenders in order to avoid rubbing, as the 18x9.5" ET33 is very aggressive for the rear of an LCI E90 due to the LCI's 8mm wider rear tract. Alternatively, adding negative camber in the rear may be able to alleviate the fender rubbing issue instead of rolling the fenders, but it will greatly depend on the tire's make and model, as well as ride height. If you are absolutely set on using the 265/35/18 on the 18x9.5" ET33, both negative camber and rolled rear fenders are required to make it fit, and even then some tires would still rub under full compression. The 18x9.5" ET43 would be the much better fit for the LCI E90 to use with 265/35/18 sized tires.
