I read on the Apex site that y'all had gotten a couple of tire machines and were going to start selling tires with the wheels. Has that all come together yet?

That is correct. We now have a brand new hunter lever-less tire mounter and road force balancer. But we are having tire availability issues locally, which makes quotes difficult. We can still sell wheel/tire sets, but it adds a few days. I will be out of the country until the first week of January, so the staff on hand would be unable to source tires in my absence.

If you are interested in a mounted set I could assist you when I return. Or you can just purchase wheels from us and have them drop-shipped to your local tire retailer.

You could run 18x10" ET25 with 275/35/18's and 18x10.5" ET27 with 295/35/18's, but there is only one tire available in that combo, that's usable, and that's the nitto NT-05.


To make a recommendation, I'd need to know if you're considering r-compounds or street tires, and if these are dedicated wheels or dual duty.




Eddie. have the 18x10 and 18x10.5. will have gc camber plates. will be trying to run r888s. either 275/35 and 295/30 or 285/30 & 295/30. they should be the same as nt05, should fit, no?

These wheels are in stock and ready to ship in all sizes and finishes except for the following: 18x10" in Hyper Black and Satin Black. We will have those back in stock at the end of March.

You could run 285/30/18 and 295/30/18 on the 10/10.5" combo

Great quality wheels, I've had the wheels (18 x 10) for over a year with several track days. Very robust and look damn good. I went with the satin black. Keep up the good work Eddy.

Thanks for the support!



We have all sizes in stock in most finishes, and will have all finishes back in stock by the end of the month.

The next big shipment is arriving Friday or Monday.

We still have plenty of 9.5", 10" and 10.5" wheels in a mix of finishes today.

The site has been modified to allow for back-orders. We confirmed that the shipment arrives Monday.

The 10" squared setup is ideal with 275/35/18's, but it can also be run with 285/30/18's square (285/30 is short though). The benefit is this is a wide front setup, and it can be rotated. 275's are available from a lot of tire manufacturers.

The 9.5/10.5 setup allows for more rear rubber. Because the car has a lot of power, many customers feel this is more balanced. The down side is the limited supply of tire models that come in the ideal tire size combos used for this stagger. There are 2-3 good extreme summer tires and 2 r-compounds that are sized well.

You already signed up, but for others interested in the pre-order: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...5#post11773385

It depends what you are using them for. 17x10" fits square on the car. That could be used with 275/40/17 r-compounds easily.

17x10.5's are an easy rear fit, and could even be used as a dedicated drag setup.

The new 17x8.5" ET20 wheel can even clear a Brembo or Stoptech 355mm kit on the E9X M3, so they could even be light weight winter wheels for someone with a BBK.

There's a lot of different uses for them

Let me know how you would use them, and I could provide a better wheel/tire recommendation for that application.

Is 355mm the largest brakes that can be used with the 17's or will they fit a 370?

I have a couple of questions:
1. I heard you guys are coming with a new style/model?
2. What wheel size do you recommend for 265/285 in 18"? Would it work well with 10" square?

We'll be announcing our new wheel soon.

Staggered tires on square wheels does not achieve anything other than stretching the front tire while leaving the rear meaty looking, and unable to rotate. The only reason for doing this was if you already had those tire sizes, and you intended to run a square setup in the future.

Excellent, please post a note on this thread so we all get to know about it.

Yes, I intend to run a full square in the future, but right now have a set of 265/285. According to Tirerack, I should be ok with running these sizes on a 10" rim - I just wanted to double-check with you guys.

Wheels are in stock. Studs will be back in stock on Thursday, and shipping to that address is $192.

Because this is to an APO address it would ship via the US Postal service and payment would be made via PayPal.
