► It’s Back! APEX 18” ARC-8 Group Buy 2017 (Round 1)



APEX 18” ARC-8 Group Buy (Round I)

OMG! The ARC-8 Group Buy is back!
All 18” BMW fitments are offered in this deal except for a few individual finishes that are on extended backorder. With over 30 part numbers offered in this deal and totally unpredictable demand, there will certainly be some backorders. We’re doing things a bit different this round to benefit everyone.
Instead of just picking the paint finish you would like, you now have the option to select backup finishes.

What’s so cool about that?
Now we can automatically allocate units to fulfill your backup finish choice if they’re available and your first choice is not.

Sounds interesting. Tell me more.
Previously, we’d call you 1-2 days after the deal ended if you have a backorder. By then we’ve already fulfilled every other available order, even if they ordered after you. By the time you confirm an alternate finish, we’re usually out of stock and you’re left waiting for new stock to come in. This new format gives you priority rights to available inventory so that if you’re one of the first to checkout, you get first dibs on availability.

What about us procrastinators?
Don’t do that! We always recommend getting your pledge in as early as possible. The system in no way rewards watching the deal and joining late. The whole purpose of the pledge system is to allow you to join with confidence and security even within the first minute of the deal accepting payment.

How will backorders be managed?
We have decent stock on hand, and a production run of about 3000 wheels going through machining right now. If your set is backordered, you may experience a 1-8 week delay. We’ll provide you with an ETA if you’re affected. If you can’t wait, you’re welcome to cancel your order.

We can’t calculate availability until after the deal closes. If you need wheels for a race weekend, Group Buys might not be for you. We recommend buying them from guaranteed stock on our regular site.











I want to know more about APEX wheels. Where can I learn more about them?

All APEX wheels are highly regarded and fully verified with official JWL and VIA certifications for every single size and offset. We created these wheels to inspire confidence during track days, race events, and everyday driving. Click here to learn everything about APEX wheels. The quality of information is worth your time!

What’s different about our Group Buy?

Joining Group Buy deals via forums is traditionally a very manual process. Since our deals have grown so large over time, we are working with a new tool to organize these deals in a single, well organized location. This deal is entirely managed on GroupBuyParts.com where you can pay, follow, and even discuss the deal’s status.

How do I participate?

Visit the official Deal Dashboard on GroupBuyParts.com. From there, you can show your interest by joining our feeler list. You’ll receive an email reminder when the deal officially opens. When the deal is live and accepting payments, you can complete checkout and pay for your order from the same page. All product details, member participants, and discussions can be found on that Dashboard.

What if I have some questions?

No problem! Just contact us at expert@apexraceparts.com. Please avoid sending us Private Messages as they do not automatically go into our ticketing system and will experience a delay for responses.

Since you don't have e9X non-M fitment guide on the group buy - can I squeeze a 10" rim under a 2011 335is without any significant camber and pulling/stretching of the rear fenders? What's my best option for the widest possible tire with an ARC-8 rim?

Oh, and BTW, I'm a super excited about this group buy.

Thank you for your post! Our 18x10 ET25" ARC-8 wheel is very aggressive for the non-M chassis and would not be a direct fit. Some members have run the 18x10 ET25 in the past on their E9X 3 series, but that would require quite a bit of camber up front, and an aggressive fender roll in the rear. Running stretched tires can also aid in fitment as well.

For a direct fit, we recommend the following fitment:

18" Staggered:
F: 18x9 ET30 (Profile 3) - 235/40-18
R: 18x9.5 ET35 (Profile 3) - 265/35-18 (255/35-18 required for LCI E90)
* 275/35-18 tires can also be used in the rear, but a fender roll may be required.

18" Square:
F/R: 18x9 ET30 (Profile 3) - 255/35-18

Let me know if you have any other questions!

-Matt

We do have quite a few wheels being restocked in about 2-3 weeks. Which specific fitment were you interested in?

There are no minimums. All ARC-8 SKUs (with the exception of Satin Bronze) that are available though this Group Buy are in stock and readily available for customers once the Group Buy comes to a close.
