Any Interest in APEX EC-7 Wheels in Hyper Black

I love the EC-7 and the Hyper Black color in the ARC8. ApEX says if they got 25 orders of the same wheel, they could order Hyper black. Anyone here interested? I'm going to post it on other M3 forums too.

The size would be 18x9.5 ET 22 and 18x10.5 ET 27


Just imagine the EC-7 in Hyper Black!

Silver



Hyper Black (for color reference)


Post on here if you would be seriously interested!

Thank you.

Look similar to ZCP which is what most people these days are running. I understand you want 18s though, so good luck.

Yes, they are 18 so there is more tire selection and the wheels are lighter and wider than the ZCP 19s.

They would should work. According to Tire Rack the measured rim width is 9.5 for the 275 and 10.5 for 295.

The rim size range is also 9-11" for the 275
and
10-11.5" in 295

I think 265 and 285 might be better though. There are more tire sizes including Pilot Supersports if you want road tires and possibly less chance of rubbing.

We usually recommend the 265/35/18 and 285/35/18 for better sidewall support since the tires are squared off with the wheel instead of bubbling out. You can go with the wider wheels, but if that's your goal, the 18x10" ET25 and 18x11" ET25 may be the better choice for better sidewall support for the 275 and 295 width tires.
