Update 12.16.2016 | The Group Buy has ended, but we’ve extended the pre-sale of the new wheels!

The Group Buy ended successfully with 80 participants which earned everyone $325 off + free shipping.



For anyone who missed out the Group Buy, you may still pre-order your set at a discount through the APEX site.
  • Orders placed in December will receive $200 off + free shipping
  • Orders placed in January will receive $150 off + free shipping
  • Orders placed in February will receive $100 off + free shipping
  • Orders placed in March will receive free shipping

Not all designs, sizes and finishes could be produced. To hit production minimums some people needed to be switched to their backup choices. Everyone who purchased a set should have received an email a few weeks ago specifying the final design/size/finish they will receive. Please contact us if you did not receive your final confirmation.

We broke our own rule of requiring 8 participants per size. On certain fitments we went ahead and produced them with fewer sets sold, but some had such low demand that we had to skip them. Below is a table showing exactly what will be coming in the first batch.

FL-5:
  • 18x10" ET25 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x10" ET25 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x10" ET25 Satin Black - yes
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Satin Black - yes
  • 18x11" ET44 Anthracite - no
  • 18x11" ET44 Race Silver - no
  • 18x11" ET44 Satin Black - no
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9" ET30 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x9" ET30 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x9" ET30 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Satin Black - yes

SM-10:
  • 18x10" ET25 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x10" ET25 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x10" ET25 Satin Black - yes
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Anthracite - no
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Race Silver - no
  • 18x10.5" ET22 Satin Black - no
  • 18x11" ET44 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x11" ET44 Race Silver - no
  • 18x11" ET44 Satin Black - yes
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x8.5" ET35 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9" ET30 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x9" ET30 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x9" ET30 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Anthracite - no
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Race Silver - no
  • 18x9.5" ET22 Satin Black - no
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Anthracite - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Race Silver - yes
  • 18x9.5" ET35 Satin Black - no



What if I have some questions?

No problem! Just contact us at groupbuy@apexraceparts.com. Please avoid sending us Private Messages as they do not automatically go into our ticketing system and will experience a delay for responses.

We're working on a large batch of on-car renderings. We'll be trickling them out over the next month.

In most cases we will render both designs and each wheel finish into a single photo creating a set. Different photo sets will show cars from different angles, distances, sceneries, but each set will be the same photo/angle. We do not have the bandwidth to take requests for various vehicle finishes and photos, but you're welcome to photoshop the images further.

These first 2 images are from a set that shows a side profile of an E46 M3 with FL-5 18x9.5" ET35 wheel installed. We should have Race Silver tomorrow.

Do they make the FL-5 in a offset that will fit a e82 body style? Those are amazing!

Initially, the new wheels will be produced in our most popular 18” fitments. If demand for 1 series fitment increases, it may be something we consider in the future

Here are a couple comparison shots of the multiple face profiles we offer in both the FL-5 design, as well as the SM-10. As you can see, we are still finalizing the SM-10 profile 1.

Here we have the Race Silver rendering on the same E46 M3. As a reminder, these are 18x9.5" ET35, with 275/35-18 Hankook RS-3 tires. We also mated them with a Brembo 6 piston 380mm BBK up front, and 4 piston 355mm BBK in the rear respectively. :thumbsup2:

I'm looking for a set in E82 fitment as well. Need to relegate my ARC-8s to track duty only and want a new set for the streets.

Appreciate the interest fellas. We will put feelers out there for alternate fitments once the wheels have successfully launched.

We appreciate the kind words! If we see an increase in demand for 1 series fitment, it may be something we consider moving forward

Deal Progress

This deal is behaving just like every other deal we've run in the past. Many of you sign up early, it slows to a trickle, and then in the last 2 days everybody else jumps in. It seems we can't get people to overcome the desire to sign-up just before the cut-off. We expect 2/3+ of the participants to join in the last 48 hours.

Don't miss the cut-off. We can't add you in afterwards. Even if you're name is on the list. You must submit a pledge to get in on the deal.

Just a deposit!

The question of when you have to pay has come up multiple times. Only a $200 deposit will be charged at the close of the deal. You won't have to pay the balance until just before the wheels ship to you. That makes joining easy on the wallet.

Engineering on schedule

2D and 3D CAD models will be finished as of tomorrow. We're moving forward with tooling production the day after that which keeps this project right on schedule.

Z4 M renderings are here

We just completed our first set of renderings that show off a staggered setup of medium front and deep rear face profiles. Every other rendering so far has been the same profile all around. Checkout the photo's below.

Update 11/15

The Group Buy is down to the last 33 hours now.

There still seems to be some confusion about how these deals work. Many of you thought you’re already part of the deal just by adding your name/email to the feeler list.

You are NOT officially part of this deal until you come back and Pledge (Add payment/shipping details).

If you haven’t already submitted your payment info, then that crucial step still needs to be completed or you will miss out on this deal. Click through the link below and complete checkout.

With the ability to choose your own minimum required discount (MRD), there is no risk. If your MRD isn’t hit, you aren’t obligated to pay.

This deal ends Wednesday, November 16th at 11:59 PM Pacific.
