Official APEX Wheels Showroom Gallery Thread

With an increasing amount of BMW owners mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles now, we see many photographs of APEX wheels being shared on the forums. This thread is meant to be a collective effort of various pictures of the APEX wheels, as the official APEX wheel gallery for the E9x 3 series.

Feel free to just post up pictures, but If you don't mind, please also include the following since many tire sizes are not a direct fitment, and members would like to know the specifics of how to achieve the same fit/look:
  • Wheel Model, Color, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Fender Rolling, etc.)

We will start here:



  • ARC-8's, Hyper Black, 18x8.5" ET38 and 18x9.5" ET35
  • 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 Continental Extreme Contact


  • EC-7's, Race Silver, 18x9" ET31 and 18x9.5" ET35
  • Toyo R888's
  • TC Kline double adjustable coilovers, Camber Plates
  • at least -2 negative camber
  • Fender rolling in the rear may be required for this fitment depending on how wide and the type of tire that is used

Thanks for starting this. I plan on getting some Apex wheels for next summer. I like EC-7 looks, but the ARC-8 is lighter. Tough choice, but I have some time to think. More EC-7 pics will help.

No regular bolts are fine. Performance wheels need performance studs too, the only way to go.

Just curious, have you tried putting the 9.5" with 275 up front?

Nope but it'll be a tight tight fit. There is a huge space right now up front that's easily enough for a 265/35/18 RS-3, but I haven't tried the 275 to say for sure.

But you're talking about 265 on 9" wheel, right?
