Group Buy Details:

Group Buy tiered discounts are based on the number of members that sign up
The more members that participate the deeper the discount for everyone

We start with a "feeler" no-commitment sign up period so everyone can see how many people are interested
During this first page members simply add their name to the list of interested buyers

When there are enough members signed up to reach the first discount tier, we will begin to take official payment via our GroupBuyParts checkout page
You are NOT officially part of the Group Buy until you've made payment
This payment period will be open for a few weeks with an official close date posted at that time
No additional members may sign up after this close date
Discounts are earned only by participating during this period, and we deny all requests for individual discounts.
Sign up early to guarantee your discount!
Additional accessories like BMW center caps and black or silver lugs can be added to your order while checking out

The day after the Group Buy closes, everyone's order will ship out at the same time
Tracking numbers will be sent via email, and your order will arrive within 1-5 business days via UPS
There are no extra waits for production, or any other unusual delays
These wheels are here now, and ready to ship after the close date

Pricing Details:

It does not matter when you make payment during the sign up period
Your order will be adjusted at the close date to reflect the end price base on the final tier reached

*Free Shipping is only available to the 48 mainland states
Alaska, Hawaii and international buyers will receive a $75 shipping credit off the actual cost of their order

Wheel Details:

Manufacturing process:
All APEX wheels are flow-formed resulting in a light weight, track and street worthy wheel.
Flow-forming significantly reduces weight in the barrel by rolling the barrel out into it's final shape using large wheels/disks that apply high pressure.
This step is the same step that monoblock forged wheels go through to shape their barrels.
By doing this, the flow-formed wheel's barrel has the same density and strength as a traditional forged wheel.
This significantly reduces rotational mass at the furthest point from the center, which is the most important weight savings area on a wheel.

These wheels were designed to be a direct, bolt on, rub-free wheel for both stock and modified 1 series models.
No spacers, or fender rolling is required if standard 225/40/18's are mounted up front, and a 255/35/18's are mounted in the rear.
Cars with suspensions set extremely low, those running r-compounds, or wider then recommended tire sizes can/may have front or rear rubbing issues.
Please ask us for fitment advice if you are concerned about your specific application. For wide tire setups we recommend the APEX ARC-8 wheel.

These wheels are fully VIA and JWL certified with a load rating of 1580lbs. VIA certificate numbers are listed in post #58.
Don't be fooled by competitors that claim to be certified, but cannot provide registration numbers.
There are vendors on this forum selling wheels that are not certified, yet they claim they are. Ask for certification numbers!
