New Wheel: APEX ARC-8 18×9″ ET30

189ET30-Blog-Cover

Join the 18×9″ ET30 Group Buy to save up to $200 »

Everyone loves the deep concave face of the APEX ARC-8 wheel line, but not everyone is willing to squeeze overly wide wheels and tires under their car’s fenders just to get that look.

Introducing our newest ARC-8 fitment: the 18×9.0” ET30. Now you can run a wheel width and offset that retains all of the concavity of your favorite wheels without having to run camber plates, roll/flare fenders, or deal with any rubbing. These are perfect for E46 and E9X Non-M owners.

If you’ve looked at our popular EC-7 18×9” ET31 wheels and wished that size was available in the ARC-8 design, then this is the fitment for you. The first production run of this new wheel is being offered via a Group Buy. This allows us to fine-tune our production runs while offering you a potentially steep discount on a set of ARC-8 wheels!

To participate in this Group Buy, you can either buy a pair of the new wheels on their own (2 wheels total) or you can choose a pair of our existing 18” ARC-8 wheels to compliment a pair of the new 18×9.0” ET30 ARC-8 (4 wheels total).

  • 1-9 Members = Free Shipping

  • 10-19 Members = $50 Discount + Free Shipping

  • 20-29 Members = $100 Discount + Free Shipping

  • 30-34 Members = $150 Discount + Free Shipping

Squeezing a 315 R-Compound Tire Onto A Stock F8X M3/M4

BMW F8X M4 APEX 18 Inch EC-7 Wheel Test Fit

Our goal was to figure out the best wheel & tire combo for both stock and modified F80 M3’s and F82 M4’s that want to add a lot of grip. In this write-up, we start by sharing the process we took to find the most optimal rear wheel fitment for running wide tires. We’re looking forward to creating more technical articles like this in the future.

Just like each previous generation M3, these cars require a unique wheel width and offset to go as wide as possible. Recycling old fitments is a major compromise and doesn’t allow for 305 or 315 tires to fit properly. It’s even harder to fit R-Compounds in those wide sizes. Existing F8X wheels on the market are aesthetic-oriented and focus on fender “flushness” with typical street tires. Achieving our goal required us to start fresh and research the right wheel width and offset ourselves. It took us two days and two volunteers to complete our testing, and even longer to compile it into a write-up. Sorry for the long wait.

BMW E60 M5 with APEX EC-7 wheels

It was designed to luxuriously ferry clients about the city, commonly referred to as “executive cars.” This Dinan E60 M5 breaks the mold of a typical E60 5-series. Prepared by Dinan Engineering, it is the perfect blend of executive car and weekend warrior providing the ability to take any twisty road with a commanding presence. When we were given the chance to shoot this Dinan S1, we jumped at the opportunity. Continue reading »
