Attached some cell phone shots, have yet to get my real camera out. AW car of course, anthracite wheels. 10mm spacer in back (which somewhat defeats the purpose of the high offset wheels but it did make things uniformly flush front and rear and still fits 265's).

I'd buy the wheels again for certain, if I had to do it over. I'd have to consider the black ones though...

Honestly, love the look of those. Straight black is getting overplayed.

None in red huh? :-( Can't decide if anthracite or hyper black would look better on my crimson red!!

I'm so torn between these and the 7's !!!!

I'd def do a 275 out back but with the 235 coming so close I may want a 225. Would the 225/275 inhibit more or less Understeer? More right ?

All these cars look insanely good while having a performance orianted wheel (ESP lowered ones). I just added about 40 pictures to my iPhone gallery!!! Now do I want these or the apex 7's ?!?!?

Though I like the high offsets on these wheels and the spoke design, I realize that I don't like the sharp bend at the center recess for the bolts. I wish the spokes curved smoothly into the hub like on the HRE P40s. Of course they couldn't be as concave as that though it could be close since you can get 19" P40s on a 1.

No, but as a friendly reference: 245/40/18 does not / baaaarely fits when lowered on kw v2 w/ stock camber maxed out (tires: ad08)

Guys, I saw some of you running 8.5x18 et38 apex arc-8 up front, any rubbing issue? I plan to use Michelin PSS 225/40/18, will it rub? Currently on stock suspension and no plan to lower the car. Should I adjust the front camber? Thanks

I know it's close with the fender but glad someone approves my setup. Anyone else have thoughts or comments on my setup?

that is the feature that make them unique and racy. otherwise they look just like any other mesh wheels out there.

I think in this case "unique" = compromised as dictated by of the offsets. You definitely get a better fit, but not a better look.

I ran 245/35/18's on 18x8.5 +45 arc-8's on the stock sport suspension with minor rubbing on the strut housing.(tires have a 9.8"section width) Currently lowered with KWV3's and Dinan camber plates and 3mm spacers with -2.5 camber. No rubbing and I can go lower if desired.

update: I have 265/35/18 rear tires on 18x9.5 +62mm ARC-8 rears. Can anyone tell me how big of a spacer I can add and still not rub? The rears just look too sunk in compared to the front.

my tires are tucked "slightly", and I am not looking to raise the rear ride height.

Just want to share about how hyperblack apex arc-8 looks on Jet Black E82 135i. My suspension setup is stock sport suspension except for Dinan camber plates that I had to install to eliminate the rubbing issue.

The setup is 8.5x18 et38 and 9.5x18 et62 wrapped with 225/265 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. The camber setup is about -1.5 degree all around.
