Official APEX Wheels Showroom Gallery Thread

With an increasing amount of BMW owners mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles now, we see many photographs of APEX wheels being shared on the forums. This thread is meant to be a collective effort of various pictures of the APEX wheels, as the official APEX wheel gallery for the 3-series.

Feel free to just post up pictures, but If you don't mind, please also include the following since many tire sizes are not a direct fitment, and members would like to know the specifics of how to achieve the same fit/look:
  • Wheel Model, Color, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Fender Rolling, etc.)

We will start here:



  • Hyper Silver APEX ARC-8 - 18x9.0" ET42
  • 255/35/18 Dunlop Direzza Star Spec

I would love to see some pics of an e46 touring on a square 17x8.5 setup.

May be too specific, but I certainly won't see it if I don't ask

At the track, its almost easier to ask, "what BMWs aren't running APEX ARC8s".

-3 degrees front -2 rear. Definitely don't need it but its great for the track. Can't wait to try them at the track in 2 months.

Thanks for the clarification Derek. The car looks great with the brake kit and anthracite on black!

Sigh, just when you are attempting to have some self control someone goes and makes a thread about the wheels you are wanting so much. Thank you David@apexracingparts, you bastard....LOL.

ARC8 17x9 et42 in Matte Black
255/40R17 Hankook RS3
TC Kline S/D, Vorshlag camber plates, turner rear control arms
-3.0 camber fr/-2.5 camber rr
Rear fenders rolled
Stoptech 332mm ST40 front/328mm ST22 rear

The fronts will rub the top of the liner, no big deal. Only happens when the suspension is fully compressed.
