Vote to pick special edition APEX wheel finish

APEX wheels have only been available in a few select finishes since their original release. We'd like your help picking our next standard or special edition finish. Take this short poll to vote for your favorites. Custom powder coating is costly whether that price is an extra service or built into the cost. With enough demand we can run special batches of unique colors at no added cost. Your vote can help bring them to life.

What finishes do you wish we had? Click here to vote

EDIT: 2/22/2017 Say Hello to Matte Bronze!

After receiving over 600+ survey submissions from the community stemming from these forums threads, we are excited to offer Matte Bronze as a new special finish option for select sizes. It was the most requested in our surveys, so we're giving the community a chance to get what they want. We have officially added it as a finish option in our popular ARC-8 18" Group Buy. Join the deal to reserve your set in this unique finish today!


Bronze - In shade

My Ride: used to be an auto
My favorite strange finish that I've seen is the high gloss copper.

Thanks for the votes guys.

We have over 300 responses now but less than 2% of them are from E46 Non-M owners. We have a decent amount of E46 M3 responses, but we really need more responses from both to spot a clear trend in color preference.

Please keep the votes coming. You can vote by clicking HERE

After receiving over 600+ survey submissions we produced a sample of the top 3 finishes requested in the most popular design requested (ARC-8).

A Group Buy has been created to make these a reality. Because this is just a color change, only a small group of participants per size/finish are needed to reach production minimums.

Checkout the Group Buy HERE

The top 3 colors requested are:
  • Matte Anthracite
  • Matte Bronze
  • Gloss Gold

Bronze - In shade
