APEX | Wheel Spacers available for your BMW/Free shipping to the U.S. 48!

APEX Wheel Spacers

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

5mm BMW Wheel Spacers - $49.99


12mm, 15mm, and 20mm Wheel 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.


12mm BMW Wheel Spacers - $84.99

15mm BMW Wheel Spacers - $94.99
20mm BMW Wheel Spacers - $94.99

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.


RAD Extended Wheel Locks
  • Available in multiple lengths, RAD wheel locks are a must if you're using spacers. OEM length wheel locks do not have the required length to thread into the hub with a spacer installed. These can cover 3, 5, 12, 15, 18, and 20mm spacers.
  • RAD Extended Wheel Locks allow for proper thread engagement. Using hardware that is too short can cause failure of lug bolts.
  • RAD Extended Wheel Locks are all made in Germany and Dacromet coated for protection against the natural elements.
  • 100% Quality inspection before delivery.
  • Extensive selection of unique wheel keys in multiple sizes, which makes it much more difficult to defeat compared to "one-size-fits-all" solutions from other manufactures.
  • Sold in sets of 4, RAD Extended Wheel Locks can provide protection for all of the wheels on your car.
  • NOTE: These are available in M12x1.5 thread pitch only and will not fit 2012+ BMW F30 3-Series, 2011+ BMW F10 5-Series & M5, 2012+ BMW F13 6-Series & M6, or 2009+ BMW F01 7-Series as these vehicles have use M14x1.25 thread pitch.

I might be asking for to much here.

Can you post pictures of your studs on factory 18in wheels?

Here's my car, I plan on keeping almost as stock as you see it: Rims, hight, tires.

My mod order is going to be:
Studs
Fender roll
Spacers

Unfortunately we do not currently have any photos of the studs with the OEM 18" wheels that are on your car. However, if we do happen to come across an example of that, we can surely post it up for you. This is how they look with the ARC-8's in 18" though:

Fitment issues? Wheel spacers may be just what you need to get the required clearance against a modified suspension.



Please call, email, or pm us with any questions you may have.
