The vast selection of sizes is great, allowing end-users the flexibility to fit their aesthetic and driving style, but what will be the optimal size for those of us w/ (Brembo) BBK wanting a pure track set-up? squared x10 et25?

There are a lot of wheels that look like this in 19". BBS CH-R, HRE, Morr, VMR...list goes on. Nice to see this kind of wheel in 18" with proper fitment options. 18's with fat rubber will grip and ride so much better than 19's. You can run a stiffer suspension setting and still preserve your ride comfort too. I was convinced that I was going to stay with 19's but I'm more and more inclined to go 18 !!!!

If they clear brembo 380's then it'll clear ST60's. Arc-8's clear ST60's but don't clear brembo 380's

I figured as much, but I didn't want to assume.

Saw these at Bimmerfest today. They look awesome.
APEX should make them in 19's to expand the line to make some money. They look good enough for people to consider them instead of CH-R's.

Since we're in the vendor section now, can we talk pricing? And are we still looking at availability around July? Definitely interested...

Saw 'em and loved 'em at the Bimmerfest.
Lightweight and budget 19" Apex would scare a lot of wheel vendors for sure.

Although a 19" wheel is not an ideal performance setup due to tire selection, there has been significant request for this sizes over the past year. They are in the works and have been for some time, but it will be quite a while before they are available. It could even be 2013 before we have them. For the sake of keeping this thread on topic, we request that we do not continue the 19" discussion here.

Thank you,

Tom,

I've had difficulty finding a 2d CAD profile for that fitment. If you have access to that profile I'd be happy to get the engineer to verify fitment. I found this http://www.apracing.com/Drawings/P16.242.pdf but I cannot 100% confirm it is the kit you inquired about.

The Brembo 380mm Kit needs 220mm of barrel clearance, and the AP kit from that link only needs 206mm, so fitment should be fine. If the kit you are inquiring about is even smaller, then it would definitely fit.

Thanks,

-Eddy P

The best fitment would be 18x9.5" ET22 Front and 18x10.5" ET27 rear, or 18x10" ET25 front and rear. In some cases the 11" rear wheels may be a good option.

How about the max flush on a stock e90 non-m?

9 Square or 8.5/10 Stagger?

Need to order the tires, thinking 235/40 and 265/35

On my ARC8s the 18x10.5" et27 are pretty sunken in. I ran a 285/35 rear and used a 10mm spacer to make it look almost flush like the 275/35 front with a 18x10 wheel. I guess my question is. Why not make the 18x11 et27 and the 18x10.5 et25? I would really consider getting a new set of 18x9.5 front and 10.5 rear but not if I have to space it out.

I think the 18x11 creates a tire selection crisis...especially for the track crowd. I know I would not go that route so I can stay with more widely available and cheaper sizes.
