Z4 M test fitment EC-7 wheels

We test fit multiple combinations of the EC-7 wheel on the Z4 M last Friday. This model is very similar to the E46 M3 in terms of clearance, but with a little less fender side clearance in our experience.

First print ad for APEX

We were excited to receive this months issue of Roundel Magazine as it contains our very first full page print advertisement for APEX wheels.  This issue features the Achilles Motorsport E36 M3 and a local customer’s car.

The Achilles team has been using our wheels since the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. This former PTG widebody E36 is running our 18×10″ ET25 wheels with 275/35/18 Hoosiers in the Hyper Black finish.

The White E90 M3 is a local car that’s used for daily driving and track events.  This car has AST 4200′s and a 380mm Stoptech BBK.  On track it runs an 18×10″ ET25 square combo with 275/35/18′s just like the race car above. But in this photo it was fitted with the more common street setup of 18×9.5″ ET22 fronts with 265/35/18′s and 18×10.5″ ET27 rear with 285/35/18 Nitto NT-05 tires.

Keep an eye out for next month’s ad as the feature car is changing
