► APEX - Lets Make APEX 19 SM-10 and FL-5s a Reality.



UPDATE 8/21

Thank you everyone for your participation. Based on your feedback, we are excited to announce that our 19” SM-10 wheels have entered into production. Our initial launch will include our most popular sizes, with additional supporting fitments arriving 2019. Sample wheels are here in real life, and they're looking amazing. We have planned on-car photos to be taken in the coming weeks, and look forward to updating the community with a real world example of what these wheels will look like mounted on various chassis.

These wheels showcase new features never before seen on our 19” wheels (see images below):
  1. Popular 10 spoke design
  2. Deep I-beam milling
  3. Knurled Bead
In addition, we decided to take it up a notch by beefing up the spokes and front lip, resulting in an increased load rating of 1650 lbs per wheel. Larger diameter wheels commonly found on heavier chassis are more susceptible to damage, therefore extra measures were taken to ensure your 19” wheels are better equipped to fight off added stress introduced by potholes, race track berms and other imperfections in the road surface.

These wheels are now available through our group buy here.

Once we get a better understanding of the demand for our 19 SM-10 and FL-5 wheels, we will determine which design and finish to move forward with for our initial release.

The best way to help bring these 19 wheels to fruition would be to tell us a bit more about what youd look for in a set of 19 SM-10 or FL-5 wheels. If you have an extra minute, feel free to share your thoughts with us. We appreciate your feedback, and look forward to expanding our product offering for the BMW community.

I bet they would. I'm torn between anthracite or silver for Interlagos. Not a fan of the satin black as they remind me of steel winter wheels...back in my Canadia days lol

Something we have considered and are still looking at our options for a step-lip.

19" FL-5's will look great in Anthracite. Pair that with an AW M3 and you have a match made in heaven

Any thought of a BBS FI like wheel? There is currently one that I'm waiting on for a competing vendor to make in 19s but I'd rather stick with Apex.

How about some forged wheels from APEX instead of larger diameter flow formed wheels...

No plans just yet, but it may be something we consider in the future if we see a demand for it

Many of our customers appreciate our price point, especially for our 18" track wheels. If the benefits of going fully forged outweigh the additional cost, then it may be something we consider

That combination would look incredible on the interlagos blue. Can't wait to see it on your car in the near future

Appreciate the feedback! Bronze may not be offered initially in the first release, but definitely something we are considering for future production.

Survey taken.

The FL-5 in 19" will look so great, I can't decide on a color.

I am leaning towards Race Silver of the 3 being offered, but Hyper Black would look so amazing with Mineral White.

May be a combo worth waiting for.
