APEX | 19" ARC-8 Pre-Order Group Buy

APEX 19" ARC-8 Lightweight Wheel - Pre-Order Group Buy

We've successfully hosted these dozens of times before, and now we're offering the same huge savings for the new 19" ARC-8 wheel. These new wheels are arriving in September, so this is our official 19" ARC-8 pre-order Group Buy. Over 290 members participated in our February wheel Group Buys, and all of them received deep discounts.

We wanted to support a larger part of the BMW community so there are fitments for the E46 M3, E82 1M, F30, E9X, and E9X M3, and Z models. The Group Buy will be listed on multiple forums where we will be monitoring and updating all Group Buy threads: M3Forums, Bimmerforums, E46Fanatics, e90post, M3post, and Zpost. Spread the word, because the more members that sign up, the lower the price will be for everyone!

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: Orders will begin shipping out in September.
  • This is a Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment like a traditional order.
  • Due to the high volume extra time will be needed to process orders.
  • Wheel orders should ship in the order that they were received.
  • We cannot guarantee an exact ETA date. Our estimates have historically been conservative and within +/- two weeks of our ETA date.
  • Because this Group Buy offers free shipping, we cannot provide expedited shipping in the event of a delay. Minor delays may occur, please allow for extra order processing time.
  • We will keep everyone up to date of even minor changes if they occur via this thread.
  • Tracking numbers will be provided to all buyers, and important progress updates will be posted on this forum, and on corresponding product pages.

Availability
  • Some sizes and finishes will sell out.
  • Availability is limited to supply on hand.

How do I join? Payments and Sign-up info
  • This Group Buy is currently in the "feeler" phase. During this period members simply need to post their requested sizes/finish. We will add you to our master list and combine that across all the forums. No payment is necessary until the Payment phase begins in September. You are not obligated to pay after adding your name to the list.
  • During the payment phase, a link will be posted to a checkout page on our site. Domestic buyers should use our site to complete payment. International buyers should contact us for an invoice and PayPal or wire transfer details.
  • The last day to join and make payment is by midnight Pacific time on the end date*to be updated with date. No orders can be placed after this date.
  • Buyers are not officially part of the Group Buy until they've paid on our website's Group Buy page or contacted us to make payment.
  • Credit cards will be authorized only for the price listed at sign-up. Cards will be charge the final price after the close of the Group Buy and the member count is totaled. This automatically insures that everyone is billed for the highest discount reached, regardless of when they joined
  • PayPal accounts will be charged the amount due at sign-up due to a lack of authorization feature. If additional discount levels are reached, then PayPal paying members will receive partial discounts to make up for the difference.
  • The Group Buy page will contain a list of members as they join. It is updated as they sign up within 24 hours and does not accurately represent the exact number of members at any given time.
  • If Aftermarket Performance Express Corp. elects to cancel the group buy due to low order volume or a production issue, ALL customers will be provided full refunds if their payment was already processed.

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 up reaching higher tier levels, which results in all or most paying members receiving 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:

ARC-8 Product Information:

Long anticipated, and arriving in Q3 2014, the APEX ARC-8 wheel will finally be available in 19" sizes for BMW. The ARC-8 design was first released back in 2009, and originally only available in race oriented fitments in a smaller 17" and 18" diameters. The straight spoke mesh design allowed for a strong and light-weight wheel that quickly became popular among racers and enthusiasts alike for it's deep spoke concavity.

The new 19" diameter is part of APEX's push towards supporting both the race and street crowd with specialized fitments. These larger diameter wheels are configured to cater more specifically to the aesthetic needs of the street going enthusiast, along with functional changes that better meet the needs of the street environment.

Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the ARC-8 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming manufacturing process. Flow-Forming, which has also been called "Roll Forging" or "Spin Forging", produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This reduces weight in the most significant part of the wheel, as it has the greatest impact on rotational mass.

More aggressive wheel widths and offsets were selected versus our line of race-oriented wheels, allowing for a flush fit without spacers. Now available in 17", 18" and 19" diameters, the ARC-8 is produced using two unique face profiles for each diameter with increasing spoke concavity. A total of 25 BMW specific sizes will be available once these 8 new 19" sizes arrive. This new diameter will be available in 3 finishes: Hyper Silver, Anthracite, and Satin Black. Hyper Black will not be available upon initial release. Sizes, and pricing are listed in the graphic below. Weights will be updated upon receipt of final production samples.

Strength improvements were made to help specifically address the unique abuses of the street where low-profile and stretched tire fitments are used. To help fight wheel bends, we've increased the thickness of the wheel's inner lip. Load ratings exceed JWL requirements, and all sizes have been crush tested in Japan, earning them official VIA certification and registry marks. Additionally, the barrel's diameter increases sharply after the drop center, improving big brake kit clearance. The ARC-8 also accepts OEM Roundel center caps, TPMS sensors, and comes with our newly redesigned gloss-black APEX center caps.

For those that fell in love with the ARC-8***8242;s looks and lightweight features but wanted something larger, your wheels are now here.


Misc.
  • Comes with redesigned gloss-black 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
