♦ Sonic MS | APEX EC-7 Lightweight Rotary Forged Wheels

Presenting the ultra light, yet affordable one piece rotary forged APEX EC-7 Wheels. These wheels already come in E9X M3 specific widths and offsets, so no spacers or fender adjustments will be required.



This new wheel addresses the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fit and performance. With the increase of faster and heavier cars being used in racing, HPDEs, and spirited driving, the EC-7 was designed and engineered to handle extreme abuse on track and street, offer a wide range of direct fitments, while producing a lightweight wheel.



An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel fitment. Without the perfect offsets, maximum tire widths and the potential of your car are always compromised. With this in mind, the EC-7 has three unique face profiles ranging from shallow to deep concavity resulting in 13 unique 18" sizes. This wide range of fitments allows for vehicle-specific caliper clearance, offsets, and tire widths, creating the most optimal setup possible.

Feature Benefit Summary:
- Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps
- Accepts OEM Roundel center caps
- Install using your factory lugs or a stud conversion
- Accepts wheel spacers including 5mm thickness, while remaining hub-centric
- OEM TPMS compatible
- Industry Leading Warranty | 2 year Structural, 1 year limited finish warranty guarantees wheels will be free from defects in materials, workmanship and paint finish under normal and reasonable use.

The EC-7's spoke profile has been designed with a curve to provide additional caliper clearance. It can clear a BBK spacer free on applications where the ARC-8 could not. A significant improvement to the EC-7 is the increased barrel clearance that now allows for the 18? version of this wheel to properly clear the Brembo 380mm BBK.



Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the EC-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming technique. 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 significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. We’ve produced an even stronger wheel by combining the strength of the lightweight barrel with a more robust face design. The EC-7 welcomes endurance racing and potholes.







Please click the images for a higher resolution version.

Designed for BMW applications, the EC-7 accepts TPMS sensors, factory lug bolts or stud conversion kits, and OEM roundel center caps. All wheels come with APEX center caps.

Finishes Available:
- Race Silver
- Anthracite
- Satin Black
