► APEX - Check out our two new wheel designs

We just unveiled two new potential wheel designs. The SM-10 and the FL-5. These would be our new solution for those who want the EC-7’s great brake clearance, but with the ARC-8’s lighter weight.



Checkout our complete Project Proposal Page to see more angles, colors, and specs.

10/12 Update | We received over 700 survey submissions, and we greatly appreciate the communities feedback. The time has come to launch the pre-sale Group Buy! Check it out here.

Initially, the release of any new wheels will be limited to our most popular 18 fitments in a few popular finishes, but feel feel to share any thoughts or ideas through our survey

Survey asks about center caps. I responded center caps a must for me. Can you put a pic of what it would look like with center caps?

Sm10 are my favourite. The survey isn't opening on my iPad properly so I'll leave my vote here

Down for these in 18x9.5 low 20s ET and 18x10.5 low 20s ET with deep concaves. Also curious if you guys would ever do a design similar to Volk TE37s?

Thank you for your feedback thus far, your comments and suggestions are much appreciated.


Design Update - Center Cap Support Added

75% of the 500+ members that have been surveyed so far want center cap support. As a track oriented company we wanted to explore a capless wheel design, but the community has spoken. We revised both designs and added APEX and OEM Roundel cap support. This change only added 0.15 lb per wheel, which is insignificant.

The SM-10 design received the same cap support design that we used on our ARC-8 wheel. The FL-5 design needed just a little more material for a cap to clear a hub.

Revised designs are posted below.







Here's an ARC-8 image with hardware installed to better illustrate how the SM-10 will look mounted on a car.



What are we working on now?
  • Finalizing weight optimization changes
  • Preparing to release the more concave profiles
  • Creating on-car images
  • Prepping the Group Buy for launch

Any indication if both, or only one, design will make it to production/the group buy? I was going to jump on the current ARC-8 group buy if the FL-5 wins out as I'm not interested in that design, but will hold off for the SM-10's.

pre-orders in the group buy will determine what gets produced. It's being left up to the community.

Group Buy should launch in about a week. Initial launch will be with the most popular finishes. Other colors could become available in the future.

If you're looking for different colors, then you may want to checkout this deal that was just launched https://www.groupbuyparts.com/index....s-q4-2016.html

...you guys used the i-beam tech on the EC-7?

At any rate, I'm pretty moist for both designs.

This is a great question, and has come up quite a bit internally. Existing APEX designs could adopt the I-beam technology, however this would influence current pricing as production costs would rise. The idea here is to create some diversity among our product spectrum, in effort to give buyers more options. Furthermore, a new design(s) provides enthusiasts and returning customers with a fresh look.

Absolutely understandable. You'd have to retool, R&D, etc. etc. Was just curious if it did come up at all.

Looking forward to the group buy for pricing and what not
