APEX | On-Car Renderings of Our New Wheel Designs

Many of you may be aware of our two newest wheel designs, the FL-5 and SM-10. We have just completed our first round of on-car renderings, tell us what you think!

The wheels rendered represent a 18x9.5" ET35 square fitment, with 275/35-18 Hankook RS-3 extreme summer tires. To show off their unique ability to clear massive brakes, we have also also incorporated dimensionally-correct models of the Brembo 6 piston 380mm BBK up front, and 4 piston 355mm BBK in the rear respectively

The landscape may be familiar to our So-Cal track enthusiasts :thumbsup2:

Looking good. I like the FL-5 ones a lot. I have the Arc-8, I just got them a couple weeks ago and I freakin love them.

We've added renders of our new wheels on an E92 M3! This will give you an idea of how deep the lip will be with an aggressive fitment (18x10 ET25 or 18x10.5 ET22). What do you think?

We have added E9X 3 series renders to give you a better idea of the Profile and Lip for a conservative fitment. Let us know what you think!

Would be a hell of a lot more relevant to the folks in here if you did renderings of the wheels on an E46.

Appreciate the response, and we certainly agree that renderings for every possible BMW chassis would be fantastic. Since we do not have the capacity to pump out renderings for every BMW model, we prioritized them in terms of the survey responses we received. The E46 M3, E9X M3 and E9X 3 series crowds represented a very large portion of our feedback up until this point.

We would love to get more feedback from the E46 3 series crowd.

- Ryan

^My bad; you did render it on a E46 M3. I was just focused on the latest post in the thread. Well done and thanks!

Z4 M renderings are here!

We just completed our first set of renderings that show off a staggered setup of medium front and deep rear face profiles. Every other rendering so far has been the same profile all around.

Appreciate that




The New 18 Wheel Group Buy has been extended for an additional 24 hours, and we are confident that we can reach the second highest discount tier.

There's clearly some misunderstanding on how to pledge, therefore during this extension we are working with interested enthusiasts to make sure their orders are submitted properly. If you have any fitment or product related questions, or need help with completing your pledge, please be sure to contact us.

This deal ends Thursday, November 17th at 11:59 PM Pacific.
