Can you show me your 17" Apex Arc-8?

Hi guys,

I am still struggling between 17 or 18 inch Apex Arc-8 wheels.

I want 17 because of the road here.. want more protection for the rims.

18 would be a normal look, but same protection as OE setup.

19 is not an option here.

Please show me your photos, I want to know if 17 is too small

Thanks

Joey

My buddy ran 17" apex arc 8. Tires were so meaty. Looked amazing. And hooked very well. Lots of tire options at that size. I'll see if he has some pics of the car

Perfect! Really like the meaty sidewall (but not toooo meaty). Doesn't really look like "oh your Bimmer has 17" rim.. Meh." More like "damn this guy must track or something, those tires are fat!" Lol

Don't really dig the all black rim though, the rim design is so much less detailed, just plain darkness. Or maybe it's just the photos?

Tires are 255/40F 275/40R. Front has 5mm spacers. Sounds really aggressive to me. I'm going 17x9F and 17x9.5R. Haven't decided on tire size yet.

Hey Joey,

Here are a few pictures of our 17" setup on the E9X. We think this setup looks great with the meaty tire!

Squared: ARC-8 17x9" ET30 in Satin Black with a Continental DW 255/40/17 all around.


17x9" ET30 Hyper Black ARC-8's on an E90. 255/40/17 tires are being used here.


17x9" ET30 & 17x9.5" ET35 Satin Black ARC-8's with 245/45/17 and and 275/40/17 tires.
