17"s can't be preordered yet, but they will be arriving in Q2 of next year and will either have their own Group Buy or be included in a broader Group Buy. More info to come!

Those 3 are the only photos I found on our flicker for non-Ms, but here are a few M3s with similar specs:





We also recently featured a LeMans blue E92 M3 on our brand new VS-5RS wheels as well. You can view more shots of that car on our full thread here but here's a teaser photo:

Paging BMW owners in the Bay area! If you're interested in free professional photos of your car on brand new APEX wheels, we are looking for volunteers for testfiitting and photoshoots! Volunteers will get copies of the photos, a discount on a set of APEX wheels, and APEX goodies/swag. If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out and submit our online form. All are welcome.

If you'd like to take an inside look at what these photoshoots involve, our good friend Blake made a video detailing the process of an 18" test fitment on his F82 M4 recently:

Ryan (@ryanselk on IG) sent in these photos of his LSX swapped Pre-LCI e90 on our brand new VS-5RS wheels. We've seen a few adventurous customers run the 18x10.5 ET40 in the rear although this fitment can rub along the inner liners and subframe with aggressive tire fitments.


Wheels: Anthracite VS-5RS
Front: 18x9 ET30
Rear: 18x10.5 ET40

Tires: firestone firehawk indy 500
Front: 245/40-18
Rear: 275/35-18

Mods:
LSX conversion
Stock suspension

Hi there,

Here is some additional information regarding that particular fitment for the non-M E9X 3-Series:

Front & Rear: 17x9.5" ET35 with 255/40-17 tires
-Available in ARC-8, ARC-8R, and EC-7R designs.
-At least 5mm front spacers are required for inner strut clearance.
Aftermarket suspensions that are known for reduced inner clearance (see
below) can not be used with this fitment.
-Front negative camber may be required.
-275/40-17 tires can be used with additional negative camber and may
require rolled rear fenders.

With a 17x9.5" ET35 wrapped in 255/40-17 tires at all four corners, this setup will require a 5mm front spacer to clear the factory suspension components. With aftermarket coilovers known to reduce front/inner suspension clearance (KW, ST, Bilstein, etc) you will not be able to run this setup without significant front negative camber, as 12mm spacers will be necessary to clear those suspension components up front. Front camber plates will also be required with this setup but the exact front negative camber requirement will depend on your ride height and specific tire selection. Wider 275/40-17 tires can also be used but will require additional negative camber to fit.

If you have any other questions or inquiries, please do not hesitate to reach out!

-Geirsen

Iím in the market for some 19s and am noticing most people go with 18Ē for their e92 (non m). Is there a clear reason for this? Iíve always preferred the look of 19 over 18, but maybe Iím missing a clear reason people go for the latter. For reference, Iím looking at arc8ís in the following spec for my Ď12 e92 335i:

Front 19x8.5Ē +33
Rear 19x9.5Ē +35

Iím lowered on kw v2ís and no camber plates.

Biggest reason is 18's ride way better. I think those will fit fine as KW's have pretty good clearance and unless you have the fronts lowered all the way, the spring perch usually sits above the tire even with 19s.

I assume generally, but do they ride better on the arc 8ís specifically in this case or in general?

Iím on 19Ē style 230ís now and have 0 complaints on how it rides. Maybe itís a personal preference type of thing.

BTW: Correction on the offsets, itís +35 front* & +33 rear*

It's just a general thing, the Apex wheels don't change that. They're lighter so if the difference is noticeable, it will be in the right direction.

That's the main reason people go 18's so I think you'll be happy with 19's. The only issue you may have is the spring perch touching the tire if you go pretty low but you'll just have to experiment. You could always upgrade to some linear shorter springs if it turns out to be an issue.

Iím planning to get a little tire tuck in the front and maybe a very small amount on the rear. Iíll be wrapping them in pilot sport 4s
