Wheel Details:

ARC-8 Product Information:

Long anticipated, and arriving in Q3 2014, the APEX ARC-8 wheel will finally be available in 19″ sizes for BMW. The ARC-8 design was first released back in 2009, and originally only available in race oriented fitments in a smaller 17″ and 18″ diameters. The straight spoke mesh design allowed for a strong and light-weight wheel that quickly became popular among racers and enthusiasts alike for it’s deep spoke concavity.

The new 19″ diameter is part of APEX’s push towards supporting both the race and street crowd with specialized fitments. These larger diameter wheels are configured to cater more specifically to the aesthetic needs of the street going enthusiast, along with functional changes that better meet the needs of the street environment.

Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the ARC-8 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming manufacturing process. Flow-Forming, which has also been called “Roll Forging” or “Spin Forging”, produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This reduces weight in the most significant part of the wheel, as it has the greatest impact on rotational mass.

More aggressive wheel widths and offsets were selected versus our line of race-oriented wheels, allowing for a flush fit without spacers. Now available in 17″, 18″ and 19″ diameters, the ARC-8 is produced using two unique face profiles for each diameter with increasing spoke concavity. A total of 25 BMW specific sizes will be available once these 8 new 19″ sizes arrive. This new diameter will be available in 3 finishes: Hyper Silver, Anthracite, and Satin Black. Hyper Black will not be available upon initial release. Sizes, and pricing are listed in the graphic below. Weights will be updated upon receipt of final production samples.

Strength improvements were made to help specifically address the unique abuses of the street where low-profile and stretched tire fitments are used. To help fight wheel bends, we’ve increased the thickness of the wheel’s inner lip. Load ratings exceed JWL requirements, and all sizes have been crush tested in Japan, earning them official VIA certification and registry marks. Additionally, the barrel’s diameter increases sharply after the drop center, improving big brake kit clearance. The ARC-8 also accepts OEM Roundel center caps, TPMS sensors, and comes with our newly redesigned gloss-black APEX center caps.

For those that fell in love with the ARC-8′s looks and lightweight features but wanted something larger, your wheels are now here.


Misc.
  • Comes with redesigned gloss-black APEX center caps
  • Accepts OEM Roundel center caps
  • Does not come with valve stems
  • Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion
  • BMW hub-centric - no centering rings
  • Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric
  • TPMS compatible

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

im not wanting a crag-legged look up front, will a 9.5 et 33 clear the strut tower ok?

**edit**

nevermind, found my answer.

a 9.5 et 33 will give me 17mm less clearance on the strut side. Members here have used an 10 et 25 up front, which gives 15mm less clearance on the strut side, so that extra 2mm can be offset with a small spacer if it rubs, otherwise, it may work fine w/o a spacer.

The F30 3-series are able to use either the 19x8.5" ET35 squared or 19x8.5" ET35 and 19x9" ET38 staggered. Was there a particular fitment that you were after for your car that you don't see available?

The 19x9.5" ET33 would be very close and would likely need a small 3-5mm spacer with any tires with a larger sidewall, such as the Michelin PSS or Yokohoma AD08's. Most people prefer the more aggressive fitment, as the 19x9.5" ET22 is still not super aggressive, but sits much more flush with the fenders than the 19x9.5" ET33 would.

What are the specs and widths on that IB e90? Tire size? Stock suspension?
I love all the apex wheels. I can't decide between these ec7.
Is hyper silver darker on the inside of the wheel vs race silver?

The Interlagos Blue e90 M3 is on 19x10" ET25 ARC-8's with 275/30/19 Hankook V12's, lowered with Dinan Springs. The Hyper Silver is a much brighter silver finish than the Race Silver, whereas the Race Silver is more similar to the OEM ZCP silver finish.
