Loving the FL-5s! Do you have specs on your suspension and alignment?

Junior's M3 is incredibly clean with near-flawless paint and a set of polished EC-7Rs to take the shine to the next level.

APEX Wheels:
  • Square Forged 18x10.5" ET22 EC-7R in Polished.
  • 275/35-18 Federal 595 RSR tires all the way around.

Can someone post additional pics of 10 inch wheel upfront with ET15 offset? So basically ET25 with 10mm spacer. Ideally with 275 tire. Thanks.

Here are some shots of a Shirmer M3 with those specs:

APEX wheel info:

Front:
18x10" ET25 EC-7 in satin black
265/35-18 Pirelli P-Zero
10mm spacer

Rear:

18x11" ET25 EC-7 in satin black
295/30-18 Pirelli P-Zero
12mm spacer

APEX Red Center Caps








Please keep in mind that we generally recommend avoiding 10mm spacers on BMWs because of their lack of a hubcentric ring. Certain 10mm spacers sold add a ring by making the spacer slightly thicker than 10mm and adding a thicker portion to the first few mm of the ring. This can cause wheel fitment issues if the wheels don't have an aggressive inner chamfer.

Beautiful setup! Seeing the EC-7s in different specs is shifting my preference from the ARC-8 to EC-7!

Thanks for the post and the purchase! What suspension and alignment settings are you running with these wheels?

If someone can please give me some assistance. I have decided I wanna get EC7 for my e92 in 19in.

Specs recommended by apex:
19x 9.5 F with 265/30/19
19x 10.5R with 285/30/19

So my issue is I don't see PS4s in 285/30/19 but instead 285/35/19 would those still work or should I just bump it up to 295/30/19?

I'll be lowering on Ohlins coilovers very soon. If anyone has suggestions for other brand tires I'm open for those as well.

Thanks for the question! The 285/35-19 tires are going to be a bit too tall for this application and would likely cause some rubbing. The 295/30-19s are a great option and can work well, but you may need to roll your rear fenders a bit to prevent rubbing. This will be particularly important on a car that is lowered.
