They have so many width options already, I don't see why not.

Just keeping this thread alive so the APEX guys see we are still anxious to get the 19" versions of their wheels. I'll either go 19x9f 19x10.5r or 19x9.5f 19x11r in the EC-7

I have a set of vmr 710 in 19s and when I went with the ec7 it took me a while to get used to the look of the shorter spokes on the 18s. I like both looks but the 18s have a more aggressive purposeful look.

i agree 100%...plus i always thought it would be odd to have a track ready car w/ obvious track mods then have a set of 19 or 20 inch wheels for the street...

Any reason you use the 19's for wet days? Or is that just what you had available?

Just what I have as a leftover set, ideally I wll get a set of arc-8s and get rid of the vmrs. Will probably eventually have a set of hoosier wet slicks, nt01s and another full slick all on their own set of apex. Right now that third set will be R1s but later probably something further up the chain.

There will be 19" versions of both the ARC-8's and EC-7's in the works, along with a new wheel.
