APEX | 17" ARC-8 Track Wheels - New Year Group Buy
 
Group Buy - APEX 17" ARC-8 Lightweight Wheel


CLOSED

After numerous requests from forum members over the past few months, we are now hosting a Group Buy for the 17" ARC-8 flat face wheels! There are fitments for the E36, E36 M3, E46, Z4, and Z3.

The Group Buy will be listed on multiple forums where we will be monitoring and updating all Group Buy threads: M3Forums, Bimmerforums, E46Fanatics, and Bimmerpost.

Spread the word, because the more members that sign up, the lower the price will be for everyone!

If you're interested in the EC-7 wheels, APEX will be having a group buy after this one closes. Be sure to look for updates with information on the EC-7 Group Buy here and on our Facebook page!

Group Buy Details:

Official Payment collection day starts: February 7th
Official Close Date and last day to pay: February 13th
Product Ship Date: Mid - Late February


Free Shipping*
  • Free Shipping is available to members in the 48 mainland US states. Alaska, Hawaii, and International members will receive a $75 credit off the actual cost of shipping.
  • Non-mainland/international members: please contact us prior to ordering for a shipping quote. We'll either send you an invoice, or a code to adjust your order.
  • Free shipping and this discounted price are for this product only and does not cover extras added to the cart such as spacers, lugs, center caps or other store products unless those produces also offer free shipping. Adding others parts may result in a shipping fee.
  • Due to package sizes, the cart may calculate an unreasonable shipping rate for add on items. If this occurs, contact us prior to checkout, and we will adjust your extra item shipping costs if there is an issue.
  • Non Group Buy parts will ship with your wheel order unless requested in the comment field at checkout.

Local Pickup Discount:
  • Local customers who pick up their set will receive a $35 discount on their order in lieu of free shipping. Local pickup discounts are provided at time of pickup as a refund, and are not provided in advance. You MUST write "local pickup" in the comment field at checkout so that we do not ship your order. We will call you when your set is ready to schedule a pickup from our Livermore 94550 warehouse.

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: Most orders mid February, remaining orders by end of February.
  • This is a Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment like a traditional order.
  • 80% of order should ship out by end of February. Some will ship immediately. Shipment time is based on availability, and cannot be exactly calculated in advance since wheels are scheduled to arrive at our facility in three shipments throughout February.
  • Customs/Port delays can add an extra 1 week delay, but it's rare.
  • We cannot guarantee an exact ETA date. Our estimates have historically been conservative and within +/- one week of our ETA date.
  • We will keep everyone up to date of even minor changes if they occur via this thread.
  • All customer orders will ship out as they become available, after the close date.
  • Tracking numbers will be provided to all buyers, and important progress updates will be posted on this forum, and on corresponding product pages.

Finish Availability
  • Finish availability will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Discount Tiers
  • The price you pay at sign up is based on how many members are on the feeler list.
  • At the close of the Group Buy, everyone's order/payment will be adjusted up or down to the final discount tier reached. In almost all cases, we end reaching higher tier levels, which results in all or most paying members to receive additional discounts.
  • In the end, everyone pays the same price.
  • There is zero advantage in signing up at the last minute, yet most members still wait till the last 2~ days.
  • Early sign-ups promote others to sign-up, and gives confidence to the stragglers. If you know you're buying then pay early to keep the momentum going.

Refunds
  • There are NO refunds on Group Buy orders. Group Buys are special order, which is why payment is taken in advance
  • Only replacement of defective, or mis-shipped products are available.
  • Members cannot change colors or sizes after item receipt for Group Buy orders.
  • These products are priced at promotional pricing and do not carry that same return policy as our retail priced items. If you would like a traditional 30 Day return policy then we recommend purchasing at the retail price, and not via the Group Buy.

Wheel Details:

Manufacturing process:
All APEX wheels are flow-formed resulting in a light weight, track and street worthy wheel. Flow-forming significantly reduces weight in the barrel by rolling the barrel out into it's final shape using large wheels/disks applying high pressure. This step is the same step that monoblock forged wheels go through to shape their barrels. By doing this, the flow-formed wheel's barrel has the same density and strength as the barrel of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces rotational mass at the furthest point from the center, which is the most important weight savings area on a wheel.

Strength:
These wheels are fully JWL/VIA certified. Strength testing was done by the VIA in Japan.

Misc.
  • Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps.
  • Accepts OEM Roundel center caps.
  • Does not come with valve stems.
  • Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion.
  • BMW hub-centric - no centering rings
  • Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric.
  • TPMS compatible.

Do they fit the Brembo 4 piston 355 kit? on a Non-m?

bigjae1976 01-14-2013 10:19 PM

I will vouch for these wheels. I got some from the Apex's inaugural group buy. I've abused them yet not one bend and they balance with relatively little weight. I have 2 sets!

Our only 17" wheel that will fit over that kit is the 17x9.5" ET35 unfortunately and that is only on the E9X non-M chassis. Unfortunately both the 17x8.5" ET40 and 17x9" ET42 flat face ARC-8's will not fit over a 355mm big brake kit but will fit over 332mm big brake kits, sometimes with wheel spacers which are often necessary for wider tires to clear the front strut.

Just a little update for the participants of this group buy! The majority of the orders will be shipping out this coming week with almost all of the 17" wheels arriving at our facility. However, for a few people that did place their orders near the end of the payment period, we are awaiting the last shipment out of three that will be arriving at our facility in the first week in March. There was a very slight delay for that last shipment, but the wheels are all on their way!

Can't run a 5mm spacer with the 17x9 ET42's and clear the BBK with about -2 camber!?! :)

David@ApexRaceParts 02-26-2013 06:27 PM

Another update for those that participated in this 17" Group Buy. We shipped out a large batch of the wheels this afternoon with mostly people that got their orders in immediately after the payment period had opened. We will do our absolute best to get all of the other 17" Group buy orders out tomorrow afternoon. Tracking numbers will be sent for everyone's shipment that has gone out today as well as all of the other group buy orders. Shipping labels have been created for all of the orders that have not yet gone out and it is just a matter of organizing and shipping out everything that we physically can get to tomorrow. Thank you so much for your patience!

STREETFIGHTER50 06-30-2014 05:41 PM

So when is the next group buy for these I'd like a set of 17x9's. Just gotta decide which color would look good with silver-grey.

I'm kinda leaning to the Anthracite. I want dark, but not black. My current 18" wheels are silver. Anyone with a Silver-Grey & APEX Anthracites? Please post a pic :)
