Group Buy Details:

Feeler Phase = March 1st-14th
Official Open Date = March 15th
Official Close Date = March 28th
Product Ship Date = By April 6th


Free Shipping*
Free Shipping is available to members in the 48 mainland 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

Local Pickup Discount:
Local customers who pick up their set will receive a $35 discount on their order
local pickup discounts are provided at time of pickup
You must mention "local pickup" in the comment field at checkout so that we do not ship your order

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: By April 6th
This is a Pre-order Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment like a traditional order
All orders should ship by April 6th. 80% of order will ship before March 30th
Some of these wheels are currently in production and scheduled to arrive at our facility the last week of March
We will ship those out within 3 business days of container arrival
Customs/Port delays can add an extra 1 week delay, but its 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

Finish Availability
Finish availability will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis
We should have enough inventory to get every member their preferred finish
We will let members know once a finish has been sold out

How do I join? Payments and Sign-up info
This Group Buy is now CLOSED

Discount Tiers
The price you pay at sign up is based on how many members are currently signed up
At the close of the Group Buy, everyone's order/payment will be adjusted to the final discount tier reached
Your card or PayPal account will be authorized for the going rate, and then charged for the final price reached (the lowest price)
At the end, everyone pays the same price
There is zero advantage in signing up at the last minute
Early sign-ups promote others to sign-up, so don't sabotage your own discount

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 receipt for Group Buy orders
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
Don't be fooled by competitors that claim to be certified, but cannot provide registration numbers
There are vendors on this forum selling wheels that are not certified, yet they claim they are. Scary stuff!
CLICK HERE to see all VIA registration numbers

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
Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric
TPMS compatible

Hyper Silver


Hyper Black


Anthracite


Satin Black

can't speak for the 17's but my 18's that were bought in the group buy last month went on yesterday and goddam are they sexy. my steering wheel feels really light for some weird reason i think its because the 17 lb. rims are so much lighter than my last set. i feel too light in the corners now with springs so I'm going to upgrade to coil overs and my cars gonna be crazy in the corners. by the way customer service at apex is awesome. i changed my rim color twice during the group buy and they surprisingly didn't get frustrated with me. btw i wouldn't suggest trying to change because they prob won't do it this time around but i had nothing but positive from them. if only they made other products i would be a consistent customer.

thanks apex

Thanks for the great feedback! We're happy to hear the wheels are working out for you. It sounds like their doing their job in the corners. We will be expanding our own product line, and we'll also be distributing other brands later this year for brakes and suspension.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This Group Buy officially opens tomorrow. Pricing will start at $50 off + free shipping*

Additional names still need to be added to the list.

We'll be posting a link to the checkout page tomorrow.
