Question APEX wheel feedback and source?

Really liking the looks and specs of the concave ARC-8 wheels. Thinking about running them in 17x9..

Anyone have comments on APEX in general, these wheels specifically, and any forum sponsors that are a good source of them?

Want to stay in either 17 or 18.

LOVE them. I might put 17x9 on my 190E when I get her (re-drilling required of course).

I would go directly to Apex (they are sponsors on here) You can talk to Ed or David. We run them on all our of race cars and they are very strong and very light weight. We highly recommend them!

Cool. So ok for a street wheel as well? The light weight (especially on the 17s) is part of what appeals to me. Looks are pretty good, too!

Got the Apex arc8 in 18x8.5 and 18x9.5. They are really light (18lbs for both) and they have stood up even with the horrible roads in the DC area. HIGHLY recommend them. I got them direct from APEX.

That car is using KW V1 coilovers. The concave 17" wheels provide really nice and adequate clearance against the KW V1's cone shaped progressive springs.

Hi Apex team. I pm'd one of you looking to see if there is any discount for board members. Would like a set of square 18x8.5 shipped to 98229. Arc8 wheels. Can someone let me know. I need new wheels and arc8 seems like the best all around wheel. price. style. weight. strength.

You keep them on in the winter? Wondering how the finish holds up in areas that get all 4 seasons.

During the winter I'll probably switch to my stock setup. It depends though. Last year there wasn't much of a winter except for maybe one day.

I honestly think they would hold up fine.

We don't have any promotions for the ARC-8s at this time as we just closed a group buy at the end of July. The wheels are currently available in many sizes and finishes with direct fitments catered specifically for your needs. Like you mentioned, with the great strength and durability, being lightweight and great styling, the ARC-8 is already priced at a great value for forum members! Give us a call if you need any help with fitment advice for your car!
