The Group Buy feeler list has been updated. Keep spreading the word about the Group Buy! 17x10" ET25 pictures on an E46 M3 are coming your way very soon!

We wanted to share a comparison between the 17" and 18" ARC-8s in terms of weight and cost.


This e46 M3i is on ARC-8s in 17x10.0" ET25 with 275/40/17 Toyo R888 R-compound tires.


Left: 17x10" ET25 Anthracite ARC-8 - 18.40lbs Right: 17x10" ET25 Anthracite ARC-8 mounted with a 275/40/17 Toyo R888 tire - 46.60lbs

Left: 18x10" ET25 Hyper Silver ARC-8 - 19.90lbs Right: 18x10" ET33 Race Silver EC-7 mounted with a 275/35/18 Toyo R888 tire - 50.50lbs
We are using an 18x10" ET33 EC-7 here instead of an ARC-8 because the EC-7 is the only 18x10" we had on hand mounted with the correct size tire. With our calculations an 18x10" ET25 ARC-8 mounted with a 275/35/18 Toyo R888 should weigh approximately 46.90lbs.

Wheel|Tires|Size|Weight|Cost
ARC-8|N/A|17x10" ET25|18.40lbs|$1136
ARC-8|275/40/17 Toyo R888|17x10" ET25|46.60lbs|$2004
ARC-8|N/A|18x10" ET25|19.90lbs|$1296
ARC-8|275/35/18 Toyo R888|18x10" ET25|46.90lbs|$2376

Weight loss and cost savings of the 17x10" ET25 wheel and tire:
  • 17x10" ET25 ARC-8's are $160 less expensive than 18x10" ET25 ARC-8's.
  • 275/40/17 Toyo R888 tires are $212 less expensive than 275/35/18 Toyo R888 tires.
  • 17" wheel and tire set up is $372 less expensive than 18" wheel and tire set up.
  • 17x10" ET25 ARC-8's are 6lbs lighter than 18x10" ET25 ARC-8's
  • Total 17" wheel and tire set up is 1.2lbs lighter
Let us know if you have any questions about this setup!

Here are a few photos of the E46 M3 with the 17x9.5" ET35 squared setup!


17x9.5" ET35 Concave Anthracite ARC-8's with 275/40/17 Nitto R-Compound tires


This 17x9.5" ET35 wheel set up only needs about -2.5 degrees of camber compared to the more aggressive 17x10" ET25 wheel set up that needs about -3.5 degrees in the front.


This 17x9.5" ET35 wheel set up only needs about -2.5 degrees of camber compared to the more aggressive 17x10" ET25 wheel set up that needs about -3.5 degrees in the front.


17x9.5" ET35 with a 15mm wheel spacer in the rear is an easy wheel fitment on the E46 M3.

List has been updated, almost to the next tier already!

Remember the group buy is officially open until Friday, December 21st! The sooner you pay, the deeper the discount level will be because everyone will see that there are people actually in the group buy. There is no reward for paying late, everyone will receive the same pricing tier regardless if they pay today or December 21st. This is not an auction and there are no rewards for paying late so jump on in as soon as you can!

17x9.5" ET35 Anthracite ARC-8's with a 15mm wheel spacer in the rear. 275/40/17 Nitto R Compound tires are used on this set-up. Much less negative camber is needed in the front; about -2.5 degrees and this is an easy rear wheel and tire fitment.

Thank you for everybody that have participated in the group buy this time! Even though we did not hit the amount of wheels that was anticipated by the feeler, APEX has decided to keep the discount tier that we previously reached with the interest in spirit of the holidays! That means that you will be receiving $100 off with free shipping* for the 17" ARC-8s!
