Official APEX Wheels Showroom Gallery Thread

With an increasing amount of BMW owners mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles now, we see many photographs of APEX wheels being shared on the forums. This thread is meant to be a collective effort of various pictures of the APEX wheels, as the official APEX wheel gallery for the 3-series.

Feel free to just post up pictures, but If you don't mind, please also include the following since many tire sizes are not a direct fitment, and members would like to know the specifics of how to achieve the same fit/look:
  • Wheel Model, Color, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Fender Rolling, etc.)

We will start here:


  • EC-7's, Anthracite, 18x8.5" ET45 and 18x9.5" ET58
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sports 235/40/18 and 265/35/18
  • Dinan Stage 1 suspension, Ground Control Camber Plates
  • -1.5 camber





  • ARC-8's, Hyper Black, 18x8.5" ET45 and 18x9.5" ET62
  • Toyo R888 235/40/18 and 265/35/18
  • Coilovers, Camber Plates
  • Negative camber is required in the front
  • Chance of fender rolling needed in the rear
