► APEX | EC-7 Wheels Now Available! *BRAND NEW!!*

APEX EC-7 Wheels

APEX is proud to introduce its new EC-7 wheel. This new wheel addresses the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fit and performance. With the increase of faster and heavier cars being used in racing, HPDEs, and spirited driving, the EC-7 was designed and engineered to handle extreme abuse on track and street, offer a wide range of direct fitments, while producing a lightweight wheel. The new features offered make the EC-7 the perfect compliment to the APEX ARC-8.

What's new?

An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel fitment. Without the perfect offsets, maximum tire widths and the potential of your car are always compromised. With this in mind, the EC-7 has three unique face profiles ranging from shallow to deep concavity resulting in 13 unique 18" sizes. This wide range of fitments allows for vehicle-specific caliper clearance, offsets, and tire widths, creating the most optimal setup possible.


APEX EC-7 in Race Silver - Profile 3


Product Details

The EC-7 adds 7 new BMW sizes not available in the ARC-8 design. The 3 face profiles offer maximum concavity and reduced weight. This avoids the common adaptation of a single face profile for unintended fitments or dependency on spacers.


APEX EC-7 Wheels Size & Profile Chart


The EC-7's spoke profile has been designed with a curve to provide additional caliper clearance. It can clear a BBK spacer free on applications where the ARC-8 could not. A significant improvement to the EC-7 is the increased barrel clearance that now allows for the 18" version of this wheel to properly clear the Brembo 380mm BBK.

Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the EC-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called “roll forging” or “spin forging”, produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. We’ve produced an even stronger wheel by combining the strength of the lightweight barrel with a more robust face design. The EC-7 welcomes endurance racing and potholes.

Designed for BMW applications, the EC-7 accepts TPMS sensors, factory lug bolts or stud conversion kits, and OEM roundel center caps. All wheels come with APEX center caps.



APEX EC-7 Wheels accept OEM BMW Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Any rubbing in the front on the Valencia Orange? equipped with spacers?

Will this set up rub if the car is lowered by 1.5cm (metric size)?

How long does it take to get them overhere in Belgium?

Currently the owner of that 1M is not experiencing any rubbing issues in the front, and he does not have spacers on his car currently. It should not rub even when you are lowered if you have the correct tire sizes for your car. I will PM you with a shipping quote for you to Belgium!

Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about fitment!
That's the exact setup I want. Those widths/offsets/tire sizes. Spot on. Definitely my next wheels once I buy coilovers

Any rubbing on the rear 18x11?

Not sure if I should do a 18 x 9.5(f) (265) and 10.5 (r)(285) to play it safe or roll the dice with a 18 x 10 (f)(275) and 11 (r)(295). Wheels will be for mostly track and some summer street driving. Not worried about camber in front as I can adjust that. J

Since you do have camber plates up front I would recommend going with the wider front set up. You could use our 18x10" ET25 wheel in the front with a 275/35/18 tire. In the rear you could easily use our 18x10.5" ET27 wheel with a 285/35/18 tire or 295/30/18 tire. The 275/35/18 front tire has a short enough sidewall compared to the other 2 rear tire options so it will proportionally look right. It is also possible to use our 18x11" ET25 rear wheel with a 295/30/18 tire. It would sit 8mm further out than the above picture and could possibly rub under full suspension compression. Many E9X M3 owners use an 18x11" ET25 rear wheel with a 295/30/18 tire or wider and do not have problems and the clearances in the rear of a 1M and E9X M3 are very close.
