Apex can't just make a wheel that would work because the wheel is such a small part of the whole solution.

There are lots of easy bolt on solutions for the front of a 1 series, they just are narrower wheels and smaller tires.

If they build a 17x9 +35 it would be a perfect bolt-on wheel for the front of our cars, but completely useless for the back, it absolutely couldn't work. For me personally, I would rather buy 4x 17x9 +50 and a set of spacers for the front and have the ability to rotate wheels, instead of 2x 17x9 +35 for the front and 2x 17x9 +50 for the back but maybe I am alone on this one.

This is my sentiment exactly
