My APEX ARC 8s are HERE!

After patiently waiting for redelivery since I was out of town at the AF Academy flying during the original delivery date, the UPS man showed up with two 50lb brown containers at my door yesterday.

Thanks to the guys at APEX and PaintPro for the awesome group buy and everyone that participated in the group buy so that we got the max tier discount. These wheels arrived in excellent condition and had plenty of protection from the perils of shipping.

Now time to figure out which 275/35-18 tires I want to run on these....

I was excited just thought I'd share.

Those wheels are sharp man! I'm actually looking at a ZCP e92 M3 with Apex 18" wheels instead of the stock 19" comp ones. Whats your opinion on these for daily driving instead of the stock 19" ZCP.

My understanding is that most people get these Apex wheels for track, correct me if I'm wrong...

Thanks

The good thing about a ZCP car is that when the EDC is on the comfort setting the ride is actually very comfortable...I'd say better than a 335i with sport package.

If you are buying a car with just the APEX 18's I'd negotiate some money off the price of the car...I think OEM ZCPs are more valuable than APEXs. I'd also investigate which APEX setup the car is running staggered/square and what widths.

Having said all that the APEXs are a lot lighter than the ZCPs and I am considering buying 2 more 18x10.5s to run as rears for the street in a staggered setup. 275/35 up front and 295/35 in the rear would look pretty mean.

These wheels work great on the street. I've had mine for almost 2 years now.
