Can't decide.... APEX 19" EC-7 or PS-7s

I love the VMR 710 look and also the OEM ZCP look and after shopping have found a great semi combo of both in the APEX EC7 and PS7's.

Looking to buy a 19" set in satin black for my Mineral White E93, but I can't decide which ones!

Any pics or input on your experience thus far? Which would you choose?

PS-7 look better IMO. Not sure if EC-7 is built stronger for the track.

The 19" PS-7 are far more aggressive than the VMR710 and look fantastic in person. The concavity is much more pronounced in real life. I haven't seen the 19" EC-7 in person so I can't comment on them. Here are some pictures when the wheels were test fitted on my old e46 m3.

I prefer the EC-7, personally. I don't like how each of the spokes extends to the edge of the rim with the PS-7.

I clearly am not helping here

The EC7 has more of a race look and the wheel looks smaller and purposeful because the spokes end before the tire and are parallel with each other. The PS7 has more of a VIP look and has more stylized feel to them. For 19s on a e93 I would probably go with PS7. On my car I would get EC7 18s.

Agree. I have couple sets of ec7 for track car and liken the look. Purposeful.
