Introduction

After trying to run a deal for both 17x10” and 17x10.5” wheels with mixed results, we found it was best to launch a separate deal for just the 10” wheel which was by far the most popular. This deal’s objective is to bring back an out of stock size. It seems like it’s popular enough to bring back, but only your participation can prove it.

Compared to the original deal, the participation requirements of this deal are now just half of what they used to be, which means reaching big discounts is now twice as easy. We will likely just produce 2 finishes just like last time, so be sure to select backups.

You have two options for how you can participate in this deal:

Receive 100% of the Group Buy Discount Achieved

Pledge to buy one full set (4 units) of 17x10’s

Receive 50% of the Group Buy Discount Achieved

Pledge to buy only a pair of the 17x10’s. You can either add a pair of 17’s we already offer to complete the set, or you can just grab the two wheels. This is great for those of you who only need 2 new wheels to complete a set, or who don’t want to run 10’s square. This is a great way to pick up a staggered set as your add on wheels still benefit from free shipping.

ARC-8 Design

Fit Matters
The right solution for every application

Consumers are often left compromising their wheel choices because selection is limited to what’s available on the market. Wide and light-weight 17’s are rare these days unless you go the expensive custom route. We originally offered these wheels because there is little need to run an 18” or 19” wheel when a 17” wheel will fit. This rare fitment takes advantage of much cheaper tires that are typically not run on BMW fitments, and results in even more unsprung weight savings.

Face Profile
One design, many levels of beauty

The ARC-8 wheels available in this Group Buy feature our both our deepest, most concave face profile along with our flatter-faced design that is optimized for maximum big brake clearance. The shape of the concave spokes were specifically designed to all for the deepest concavity while clearing OEM brake calipers.

Spokes
More than just a pretty face

The spokes of the ARC-8 were designed to be robust where they need to be, and extra lightweight where they should be. In each iteration of our ARC-8 design, the split "Y" spokes are carefully evaluated from structural aspects to ensure light weight and remarkable strength. The lack of a deep front lip, but instead spokes that connect directly to the barrel's lip, creates a rigid wheel with incredibly even load distribution. These features help reduce one of the most common concerns with aftermarket wheels — bending. Beauty follows function with this extremely popular and timeless design.

Hub Center
Form follows function

Race wheels can't just be light, they need to function in a high performance environment. Unlike the narrow lug recesses of most other wheels, the ARC-8 wheel features a wide open hub center that easily accommodate over-sized race lugs and beefy impact sockets. This allows for quick and easy wheel changes and prevents chips and scratches from tools.

Hub Centric
No rings or adapters here

All APEX ARC-8 wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications, and centering rings are never required for any BMW application. All 5x120mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 72.56mm center bore.

Center Cap
A factory fit and finish

We don't reuse one cap design for all of our wheels. Every ARC-8 wheel is designed to work with factory center caps. You can easily replace APEX center caps with OEM BMW roundels for a clean factory look. The ARC-8 wheels will ship with our redesigned Gloss Black center cap that mimics the size and shape of a BMW factory center cap.

Brake Clearance - Spokes
Spokes that work for you

APEX wheels properly clear all OEM brake calipers. Our wheels are targeted at the serious performance-minded owner. The spokes of the ARC-8 clear Big Brake Kits on newer model BMW’s. Older models such as the E36, E46, Z3, Z4 will require a spacer to clear aftermarket calipers. These spacers can range from 5-20mm depending on the application, which usually results in an unacceptably aggressive fitment. These wheels are best for owners with stock brakes or newer models such as the E9X and F3X. Ask our experts by using the discussion tab if you would like us to confirm your specific fitment.

Brake Clearance - Barrel
A lot of room in a tight space

Spoke clearance is only half the problem. The barrel opening on a wheel also needs to be big enough to clear the sides of your caliper and rotor. Many wheels on the market have aesthetic compromises in their design that consumers don’t even know result in major negative impacts on barrel clearance. Those wheels may work with smaller stock brakes, or smaller diameter big brake kits, but the larger kits will pose a major problem. The concave 17” ARC-8 has some of the best barrel-side BBK clearance, easily fitting most aftermarket 355mm kits. Ask our experts by using the discussion tab if you would like us to confirm your specific fitment.

Wheel Hardware
Original or Aftermarket, it all works

The ARC-8 wheel can be used with all OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a 60° tapered seat. Lug bolts, wheel locks, and stud conversion kits all work perfectly. The ARC-8 wheel also accepts wheel spacers without issue. The shallow rear chamfer allows the wheel to remain hub centric even when 5mm flat spacers are used. The chamfer is deep enough to clear the chamfered lip found on some aftermarket spacers that would typically cause improper seating of the wheel and, therefore, wheel vibration.

TPMS Sensors
They all fit

TPMS sensors, which monitor tire pressure, are one piece of technology that can't be compromised. The attention to OEM compatibility on the ARC-8 wheel doesn't end with center caps. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent BMW TPMS sensors, and any standard sized metal or rubber valve stem.

ARC-8 Manufacturing

Flow Forming
Benefits of forging, without the pain

All APEX wheels, including the ARC-8 wheel, are produced using the Flow-Forming technique. This process significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. During the manufacturing process, rollers apply high pressure to the inner barrel, compressing the aluminum into it's final shape. This effectively eliminates porosity and aligns the grain structure of the metal, which increases tensile strength. The end result of the Flow-Forming process is a lightweight and extremely strong barrel that equals that of a traditional forged wheel at a fraction of the cost.

Testing & Certifications
We break a lot of wheels

Computer simulated stress tests are no match for real world testing when designing a light-weight wheel that will see extreme loads. All APEX wheels are crush and load tested to exceed JWL standards and those results are independently tested in Japan by the 3rd party government agency known as the VIA. Countless wheel companies falsely claim they are tested and certified by the VIA, and so they lack the certificates to prove it. We test and certify each and every design, diameter, width, and offset, separately. We publicly list all our VIA registration numbers which are on file with the VIA for confirmation. Don't trust brands that claim testing, but can't provide verifiable registration numbers.

Weight & Strength Optimization
It’s all in the details

Various design features were implemented to ensure that the ARC-8 wheel design was light, but had even more strength to handle the abuses experienced in endurance racing. We began with a beefy, multi-spoke, one-piece design. We built and test this wheel with even higher load rating requirements. We added reliefs in the mounting pad to remove weight between lug holes, where we could safely save weight. The design was then run through Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to further optimize the spoke and barrel design. The result is a lightweight wheel with extra strength in all the right places. Use the ARC-8 with confidence is over built for both street and track.

Finishes
Because being faster is just not enough

The ARC-8 wheel is available in multiple finishes. All APEX wheels are finished using a comprehensive multi-stage liquid paint system over a powder coated base. Often overlooked, painted or powder coated lug hole seats can cause hardware to loosen or begin the spread of paint chipping to more visible sections. The coating process of the ARC-8 leaves lug holes, center bores, and mounting pads untouched which ensures proper fit and torque values.

Warranty
A wheel you can depend on

All APEX wheels are backed by a 2 year structural warranty and a 1 year finish warranty to the original. This warranty guarantees that all APEX wheels will be free from defects in materials, workmanship, and paint finish under normal and reasonable use.

Updates

UPDATE: Apr 03, 2017

The wide 17x10” ARC-8 Group Buy was a success. We officially crossed the finish line with over 80 wheels accounted for, which resulted in stellar savings.

To meet your finish preferences, APEX will be producing Hyper Silver, Anthracite & Hyper Black. Our goal is get wheels into your hands as soon as possible, and we will keep the community updated in regards to the current estimated arrival of mid June.

The community played a pivotal role in bringing these unique wheel back into production, and we look forward to holding remaining stock for months to come!
