ApexRaceParts: Official APEX ARC-8 Wheel Gallery
 
There are a lot of members out there running the ARC-8 wheels now, with a mix of staggered/square setups and different tire sizes.

Lets make this the official ARC-8 wheel gallery for the E46

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 size
  • Front and rear tire size, tire make/model
  • Any required modifications: spacers, camber, rolling..

Close but no signs of rubbing...

This wheel/tire setup is far better on the track. It was good for a 3 second/lap improvement on a 9 turn/2.5km road course. Car feels a lot better in the corners too!

Anyone have these wheels on a sedan? Looking into these for my sedan but wanted to see how it would look on it first.

I need to get some updated pics as I'm now running a 3mm spacer up front instead of a 10mm but this should give you an idea.

Maybe next weekend I'll have a chance to get some new pics for this thread.

No but I'll try to get something from the side when I get around to updating my pics.

^ wish they come with a more aggressive offset...

They come in M3 offsets for the 18's.

I don't think you can really get much more aggressive with the 17s on the non-Ms with 255s. It's a pretty tight fit as is.

18x9.5" et35 is already very aggressive for a non-m. That setup has been done before by a member on here. Hopefully we'll get some pics of that setup in here soon.

I was able to grab a few new shots of my car this evening...

18x9 Hypersilver with 255/35/18 Dunlop Z1 Star Specs, 3 mm spacer and -2 deg camber up front. No spacers and -1.5 deg camber in the rear.
