~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 applying 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 the barrel of a fully 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.

Strength:
These wheels are fully JWL/VIA certified. Strength testing was done by the VIA in Japan
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. Scary stuff!
CLICK HERE to see all VIA registration numbers

Misc.
Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps
Accepts OEM Roundel center caps
Does not come with valve stems
Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion
Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric
TPMS compatible

Hyper Silver ARC-8


Satin Black ARC-8


Hyper Silver AERO-7


Hyper Black AERO-7


Anthracite AERO-7


Gloss Black AERO-7

That is not an option, as we cannot take payments for orders that far in advance.

I ordered a staggered set for my 135i through another vendor and I was curious if I will have any issues if I run a 235/35 tire in the front? The reason being is that I already have these tires from another set and would like to use them before trying the recommended set of 235/40 in the front, 265/35 in the rear.

Thanks.

I run 235/40 front and 265/35 rear Dunlop Starspecs with stock suspension and there is no rubbing anywhere. I autocross the car so if it rubbed I would know. Starspecs run pretty wide for street tires. Looking to add some camber in front and run wider later.

235/35 front would add some rake to the car. It's smaller so I don't see how it would rub if 235/40 does not.

Very happy with my set from the original group buy!

You would not have an issue with 235/35 fronts. That would be fine.

I don't see where it says the number sold but I am probably going to get a set of 18s. I figure worst case I get free shipping.
