Volunteer Test Vehicles Needed for EC-7 Wheels

The EC-7 wheel prototypes are here in 13 sizes, 7 of which are new to APEX, so we are looking for a wide range of vehicles to test these wheels on. If you are willing to travel to Livermore (San Francisco Eash Bay) for some test fitting and photos, then please contact us. This is a great opportunity to see this new wheel design on your own car, and to confirm fitment.

Some wheels are made in specialty sizes/offsets that require specific modifications for proper installation, Below is a list of vehicles we are interested in, along with the required or preferred modifications for each vehicle type.

E36 M3: camber plates required, BBK preferred

E36 M3: Camber plates required, front/rear fenders rolled/flarred to fit 18x10's with 285's

E46 M3: camber plates required, 355mm BBK required

Looks like you're going for Brembo BBK fitment too.

Any idea on weight and wheel sizes?

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
