Thanks

For a 1 series staggered fitment we suggest:

Front: 18x8.5" ET45 - 235/40-18
Rear: 18x9.5" ET58 - 265/35-18

The 1 series SKUs have become increasingly difficult to stock on a daily basis, and that is due to the fact that they are considered a specialty fitment. The 1 series wheel fitment is unique, requiring conservative/high offsets for proper fitment. Most APEX SKUs have the ability to suit multiple BMW chassis (like the 1M), therefore the overall market is much larger, and the production minimum requirements set by our factory do not pose an issue. On the contrary, the 1 series SKUs can only be purchased by 1 series owners, and current demand does not support our production minimums. At the end of the day, we would like to still offer these SKUs, as they are a great fit for the 1 series community, where options are limited.

There is an answer! We do not want to put our customers in a box when it comes to wheel/tire fitment, therefore we will continue to offer a wide range of wheel fitments including our specialty SKUs. Our ability to offer products to these niche corners of the community keep APEX unique. The APEX Group Buy platform that many customers have grown to love and our recent partnership with GroupBuy.com provide us with a perfect solution.

A Group Buy allows us to create interest within a particular segment of the BMW community on a particular SKU or set of SKUs. By getting a pool of buyers together, we can not only warrant a new production run, but we can discount the product for the customer as well. Whether or not we move forward with production, and at how big of a discount to the customer is fully dependent on the communities participation, therefore it is important for the community show us their interest when Group Buy's become available.

We typically announce these Group Buy on the forums, through our social media channels (Facebook & IG) as well as on our website. You may visit the GroupBuyParts.com website for more information.

Low clearance? No problem.

These 18" Satin Black ARC-8s slide right over massive StopTech brakes.

Thank you for the question! Both our ARC-8 18x9.5" ET22 and 18x10" ET25 wheels will clear the StopTech ST-60 380mm BBK. With that said, we have not tested the 370mm Tarox brake kit in house. If you would like us to test your kit, feel free to email us a brake template of your kit to expert@apexraceparts.com
