APEX | Wheel Spacers available for your BMW
 
APEX BMW wheel spacers for all 5 lug BMW models except for the E39. These spacers are machined from billet aluminum and made in Europe by a TUV certified ISO9001 manufacturer. Perfect for adding needed suspension clearance between your wheels/tires, or to push your wheels out for a more aggressive look. Spacers are sold in pairs of 2, and cannot be used with stock length lug bolts. Extended lugs or a stud conversion is required to use spacers.


All wheel spacers:
  • Can be used in any discipline: Street, Auto X, Track, and Racing
  • 5x120 bolt pattern
  • 72.6mm center bore
  • Billet aluminum
  • Anodized Finish
  • Made in Europe

5mm spacers
  • These 5mm spacers have been tested with the APEX ARC-8 wheels.
  • There is still enough material on the OEM hub to keep the ARC-8 wheels hub-centric and vibration free.

12mm, 15mm, and 20mm spacers
  • APEX 12, 15, and 20mm spacers are a true hub-centric design, and a must when a proper, issue-free fitment is required. The extended hub keeps your wheels centered properly which eliminates wobble and vibration inherent in traditional spacers.
  • Without a hub extender the wheel is only secured by the lugs (known as lug centric) when a spacer is used. BMW's were not designed to be lug centric, as they have a lot of slop/play around the lugs.
  • This is the same reason why some wheel manufacturers have to provide centering rings if their wheels are not 100% BMW specific. If you don't want your car to ride like a wagon, you need hub-centric spacers.

Mandatory Extended Length Mounting Hardware:

BMW Stud Conversion Kits and OEM Style Extended Lugs
  • When using any of our wheel spacers, extended length mounting hardware is required. OEM lug bolts do not have enough length to go through the spacer, and thread into the hub. Either longer OEM style lug bolts, or a stud conversion is required.
  • Both options allow for proper thread engagement. Using hardware that is too short can cause failure of lug bolts.
  • On our website you can add a set of 10 extended lug bolts to your order at a discounted price by selecting your desired finish from the drop down menu. This is enough for two spacers or two wheels. These lugs bolts are either 5, 12, 15, or 20mm longer than the OEM lugs that come on BMW's from the factory and they share the same 12x1.5 threads and 60 degree taper.
  • Available in a black or silver zinc finish. Additional lugs can also be purchased individually.

Will you help me understand how this helps eliminate wobble? I have a set of Iforged 19's and order the hubcentric rings and that helps, but not completely. What would you recommend for a stock wheel setup with 17's and standard lowering? (Spacers)

Joe@ApexRaceParts 10-08-2012 05:05 PM

Hubcentric rings are not spacers. Our wheel spacers are hubcentric so that you will not need hubcentric rings unless your wheels are of a different center bore diameter. Pm sent.
