Apex EC-7 Wheels: Now Available!
 
APEX EC-7 Wheels

APEX is proud to introduce its new EC-7 wheel. This new wheel addresses the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fit and performance. With the increase of faster and heavier cars being used in racing, HPDEs, and spirited driving, the EC-7 was designed and engineered to handle extreme abuse on track and street, offer a wide range of direct fitments, while producing a lightweight wheel. The new features offered make the EC-7 the perfect compliment to the APEX ARC-8.

What's new?

An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel fitment. Without the perfect offsets, maximum tire widths and the potential of your car are always compromised. With this in mind, the EC-7 has three unique face profiles ranging from shallow to deep concavity resulting in 13 unique 18" sizes. This wide range of fitments allows for vehicle-specific caliper clearance, offsets, and tire widths, creating the most optimal setup possible.

Product Details

The EC-7 adds 7 new BMW sizes not available in the ARC-8 design. The 3 face profiles offer maximum concavity and reduced weight. This avoids the common adaptation of a single face profile for unintended fitments or dependency on spacers.

APEX EC-7 Wheels Size & Profile Chart

The EC-7's spoke profile has been designed with a curve to provide additional caliper clearance. It can clear a BBK spacer free on applications where the ARC-8 could not. A significant improvement to the EC-7 is the increased barrel clearance that now allows for the 18" version of this wheel to properly clear the Brembo 380mm BBK.

Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the EC-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called “roll forging” or “spin forging”, produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. We’ve produced an even stronger wheel by combining the strength of the lightweight barrel with a more robust face design. The EC-7 welcomes endurance racing and potholes.

Designed for BMW applications, the EC-7 accepts TPMS sensors, factory lug bolts or stud conversion kits, and OEM roundel center caps. All wheels come with APEX center caps.

i see the size is offered for it but do you have any pics thats got the 10.5 or 11's fitted on an e46m3? seems like some folks have gotten the 10.5 rear but turn around and sell them so im wondering if its a fitment issue and figuring that the best size is still a 10 in the rear.

While we do not have any photos of either the 18x10.5" ET27 or 18x11" ET25 EC-7's on the E46 M3, we have heard of some customers using both of these on the rear of the cars with rolled fenders and undersizing the tires with 275/35/18 sized street tires. The fitment for both the 18x10.5" ET27 and 18x11" ET25 is much more aggressive than the 18x10" ET25 and does not provide any additional performance benefit as you are limited to a 275/35/18 sized tire without major fender modifications. Those that have used these wider sized wheels did it mainly for cosmetic reasons in order to get the widest wheel they could in the rear.

We have hosted a group buy earlier this year for the 18" EC-7's. We are currently hosting a group buy for the 19" versions if you would be interested in those.

Jalaly25 05-30-2014 12:40 AM

When does that take place?
