Apex ARC-8 Group Buy

Hi,
So just noticed the M3 boys are doing a group buy of Apex ARC-8 wheels in 18/9.5 front and 18/10.5 rear. This is the recommended set up for our 1Ms so thought maybe we should jump in too. They are close to having over 30 orders then price drops even more. Here is the info. No relation just passing on the news.
I am going to get a satin black set for track use.

Simply checkout out through this link http://www.apexraceparts.com/18-ARC-...Buy_p_126.html

You do not need to add your name to the list. That was only a "feeler", and that list no longer counts. The only members who are officially part of the Group Buy, are those who complete checkout.

Great wheels for the money.

I had them on my '99 M Coupe and am now using them for track use on my 1M.

click link in the quote in my OP to sign up for the order. Details are listed on that page in the box at the bottom of that screen. HP autowerks and APEX recommend this size (18/9.5 ET22 front 18/10.5 et27 rear) for our cars.

OMG, good find. I'm kinda afraid to ask my wife for permission. I don't even have my car yet, but the price is soo good and could get even better.

Anybody thought about doing 10"s all around or even 9.5"s if 10"s aren't available? Would get a lot more life out of a set of track tires that way.

The group buy is for staggered only. They had a prior group buy for square set up. Something about how they stock these things.

Hey man it is only a small warehouse, not a FACTORY hehe, and the lift was such a good deal

I slid by for a long time without any notice but the trick suspension for my Alfa GTV restoration followed by a 1M purchase definitely made me have to open the books hehe.

Still I get away with a lot and her hobbies/purchases pale in comparison.

sorry for the

Another option

Hi all,
Spoke to Harold at HP Autowerks and he can match the price and free shipping so another option if you want your wheels sooner.

He might also be able to do square set ups at a great price.

Again no relation just passing it on.
