The Apex Way because Less is More- E90 Content

Wow it's been awhile since I posted pics on here...

Decided to give these a try. My older brother picked up the set and I ended up “borrowing” them. Probably rocking this set up for a couple months or until after bimmerfest when my brother is going to want his wheels back or I might buy them off him.

18x9.5+35 running a 15mm MS spacer up front 265/35
18x10 +22 (or maybe 25) running a 12mm MS spacer rear 285/35

Let me know what you think.

Picked them up from a local member that used them as his track wheels, so the condition of the wheels were not the best and the Toyo R888’s were donezo. I’m loving the beefy tire look!

Picked them up and mounted them on at home





Tires needed to get changed, didn’t like the little nicks on the rims, so decided to refinish them, let the sanding at home begin. P80/P100/P150/P220/P320




Taking them to powder coat shop, which ended up still sandblasting them but complimented my sanding skills



Meanwhile picked up some new Rubber.. RS3s!



Rims ready a few days after




Time for a wash and Iphone pics!










Let me know what you guys think!
PS if any of you vendors/members want to sell me a LCI E90 trunk please PM me details about what you’re selling. I want to make the rear end look more aggressive.

Love the APEX's, both on this platform and the E46. Definitely prefer over your previous setup.

Looks great! Gotta love a track wheel riding shotgun in the Cayenne. Presumably of course!
