Header-03

We received an update that all 19” ARC-8 wheels are scheduled to arrive around mid-October. We also received notice from many customers that they experienced technical difficulties while trying to join the pre-order through our site.

Because there are two weeks left before wheels get here, and because we just fixed the issue that prevented the coupon code from working properly, we feel obligated to extend the sign-up period for the pre-order.

You now have 2 more weeks to join. The last day to place your pre-order is October 15th.

Wheels will ship out immediately upon their arrival.

For more details see the original 19″ ARC-8 Product Announcement pre-order post.

Photoshoot: 19″ ARC-8 Wheels on Interlagos Blue BMW Dinan E90 M3

Front 3/4 Interlagos Blue BMW E90 M3 Dinan with 19" APEX ARC-8 Wheels

This Interlagos Blue BMW E90 M3 is running a squared 19″ ARC-8 wheel fitment in the Anthracite finish with Hankook V12 tires, and lowered on Dinan Suspension. The Dinan Suspension provides a very mild drop, and retains the same wheel fitment as the OEM suspension. There are numerous fitment combinations available for this model M3 ranging from 9″ to 10.5″ wide, and all of them share the same deep concave face profile (Profile 3). This specific M3 sedan was tested with a square setup of Anthracite 19×10″ ET25 ARC-8 wheels front and rear with 275/30/19 sized street tires. Although this is a wide front wheel/tire setup, it is a direct bolt on set up with street tires if the stock suspension or lowering springs only are used. However, E9X M3′s equipped with KW Variants or Club Sport coilovers will require a 5mm spacer in order for the 10″ front wheel to clear the suspension. R-compounds are also an option on the 10″ square setup, but camber plates will be needed to fit meaty tires. Do note that suspension clearance is effected by R-compounds, and the unique shapes of aftermarket suspension components can cause interference with the wheels and tires, thus requiring a small spacer for adequate clearance like those with KW coilovers.

Photoshoot: 19″ PS-7 Wheels on Jet Black BMW E46 M3

Front 3/4 view of a Jet Black BMW E46 M3 with APEX 19" PS-7 wheel fitment

There’s nothing better than the look of an aggressive stance with deep concave wheels on a lowered M3. Fitting them on the back of a BMW E46 M3 is no challenge, but if you can also get them to fit up front, it changes the car’s entire personality. We had the opportunity to play with this Jet Black E46 M3 coupe for a day, and we were able to test fit the most aggressive wheel configuration recommended with deep concave front wheels. The Jet Black E46 M3 shown is running an extremely aggressive staggered 19″ PS-7 wheel fitment for street use. The same general look can be accomplished with easier fitting wheel and tire combinations that share the same face profile.

Photoshoot: 19″ EC-7 Wheels on Dakar Yellow BMW E46 M3

Front 3/4 view of a Dakar Yellow BMW E46 M3 with APEX 19" EC-7 wheel fitment

There’s nothing better than the look of deep concave spokes on a BMW. Fitting them on the back of a BMW E46 M3 is easy, but if you can also get those deep concave spokes to fit up front, it changes the car’s entire personality. This Dakar Yellow E46 M3 is running a slightly aggressive staggered 19″ EC-7 wheel fitment for street use. Tires are Hankook V12 tires, and the car is lowered on Ground Control Coilovers. Ground Control coilovers utilize a Koni shock with linear Eibach springs, which is compatible with our 19×9.5″ ET33 EC-7 wheels without the need for spacers. Continue reading »

Photoshoot: 19″ ARC-8 Wheels on Carbon Black BMW E46 M3

Rear 3/4 view of a Carbon Black BMW E46 M3 with APEX 19" ARC-8 wheel fitment

There’s nothing better then the look of deep concave spokes. Fitting them on the back of a BMW E46 M3 is no challenge, but if you can also get them to fit up front, it changes the car’s entire personality. This Carbon Black BMW E46 M3 is running our new 19″ ARC-8 wheels in the Hyper Silver finish. These Profile 3 wheels use our most aggressive spoke profile. On this model M3 this look can be achieved with a number of different front and rear wheel combinations, but this particular M3 is running a rather aggressive setup. For this test fitment and photoshoot of the 19″ ARC-8 wheels, we installed 19×10″ ET25 (Profile 3) wheels square. Although this is far more aggressive than what we would recommend for most customers, it visually looks the same as our much easier wheel combinations because all Profile 3 wheels share the same spoke concavity, only their widths and offsets change. On this wide 10″ setup we used Hankook V12 Evo tires in the size of 275/30/19 all around. This car is lowered on BC Coilovers with -3.5 degrees of camber dialed in up front.

Photoshoot: 19″ PS-7 Wheels on Laguna Seca Blue BMW E46 M3 Convertible

Front 3/4 view of a Laguna Seca Blue BMW E46 M3 Convertible with APEX 19" PS-7 wheel fitment

There’s nothing better then the look of deep concave wheels on a lowered M3. Fitting them on the back of a BMW E46 M3 is no challenge, but if you can also get them to fit up front, it changes the car’s entire personality. We had the opportunity to play with this convertible for a day, but we could only test out one configuration with deep concave front wheels. The Laguna Seca Blue E46 M3 Convertible shown is running an extremely aggressive staggered 19″ PS-7 wheel fitment for street use. The same general look can be accomplished with easier fitting wheel and tire combinations that share the same face profile.

Photoshoot: 19″ EC-7 Wheels on Alpine White BMW E90 335D

Front 3/4 view of an Alpine White BMW E90 335D with APEX 19" EC-7 wheel fitment

We took our APEX shop car that normally runs a staggered set of 18×9/18×9.5″ EC-7 wheels, and we mounted up a set of 19″ EC-7′s in equivalent sizes. Our 2011 Alpine White LCI E90 335D was tested and photographed running 19×9″ ET35 (Profile 2) front and 19×9.5″ ET33 (Profile 3) rear wheels. A setup like this would typically be used by someone wanting to run a mildly aggressive street setup, as it is more aggressive than our most conservative combination available for the 3-series. For this test fitment we used 245/35/19 and 255/35/19 Hankook V12′s. Since we like everything to be track worthy, this diesel 3-series was already equipped with MCS single-adjustable coilovers and Ground Control camber plates. As tested the car had only 1.5 degrees negative camber dialed-in up front, which was unnecessary to fit these 9″ wheels and 245 tires. Typically this diesel would be running 255 Michelin Super sports up front on a 9″ wheel along with wheels that use a more aggressive offset, so we had more than enough front fender clearance the way our shop car was configured. The ET35 offset of these 19″ wheels in combination with a 245 tire allows them to be a direct flush fitment on a stock E9X non-M, but careful attention is still needed to avoid any suspension clearance issues with some aftermarket kits due to their added wheel width in towards the strut. For the easiest front fitment, or for those looking to run tire widths closer to OEM sizes, the 19×8.5″ ET35 wheel is the right choice. 8.5″ wide wheels with a 235 are an easy fit, and still provide a nice performance increase over stock.
