Introduction

Many enthusiasts missed out on our initial launch discounts, so we're bringing them back with this deal. This is also the first time we're offering the option of adding tires to your order with free mounting and balancing.

This is also the first time we are exploring the option of adding 19" tire as an add-on to this deal. We're offering free mounting and balancing, and the tires are priced competitively. We listed all relevant Mustang sizes we can source, but not all sizes and models may be available when the deal officially opens for payment due to limited availability. Use the feeler phase to indicate what you're interested in, and we'll do everything we can to sourcing them.

These 19" EC-7’s are available in both staggered and rotatable square fitments, providing S197 and S550 enthusiasts alike with lightweight, flow formed solutions to meet their specific needs. We have mapped out a number of proven fitment iterations below, from wheel and tire configurations down to respective tire availability in various compounds. Whether you are enjoying your machine on the street or as a weekend track warrior, we've got you covered.

Both wheels listed below will offer ample brake clearance, effectively clearing a variety of aftermarket BBK's as well as popular factory BBK's like the S197 14" and 15" GT500 Brembo BBK's, S550 Performance Package Brembo BBK, and even the massive GT350 Brembo BBK.

2017 Holiday promotions won’t be as appealing as the discounts offered here, so don't miss out on this opportunity.

Tire Information

Handled by Professionals

Our enthusiast technicians mount and balance your tires in-house at no extra cost. It’s really easy for your local tire tech to scratch a wheel. If they’re inexperienced, inattentive, or they use old equipment, you may be in for a real headache. At APEX, we use high-end, touchless equipment. If a mistake is made or a factory defect is discovered during our quality control inspection, you won’t experience any delay, as we have easy access to replacements.

Eyes on the Prize

We perform a thorough visual inspection and measure all tolerances on every wheel and tire order that leaves our warehouse. We hate the hassle of returning defective product just as much as you do, so we make sure your parts are in perfect condition before shipping. Nothing ruins a track day faster than having to ship back vital parts.

A Delicate Balance

Do you have the time to go back and get your car rebalanced after a local shop messes up? We use Hunter Road Force balancers to ensure a true balance the first time. Do you know what match-mounting is? It’s a pain in the a** to do, and shops avoid it like the plague. As enthusiasts, we invest the time to match-mount when needed to get the best balance possible. Did you order black wheels? We’ll install black wheel weights, as we understand that attention to detail is important to you.

Included Essentials

When wheels are ordered with TPMS sensors, we install them for free along with color-matched valve stems so your new wheels are ready to be installed the moment they arrive. If you don’t require TPMS sensors, we’ll install black rubber valve stems free of charge.

EC-7 Design

Fit Matters
The right solution for every application

The EC-7 wheel includes details specifically implemented to enhance the Mustang owners' track day and street performance experience. An optimized car setup begins with the right wheel and tire fitment, and without model-specific attention, maximum performance is compromised. These wheels were developed exclusively for S197 and S550 chassis including the infamous GT350, and will work in either square or staggered applications. Most fitments are direct bolt-on solutions, however aggressive square fitments utilizing the 19x11” EC-7 wheels will require spacers on the front axle for proper inner strut clearance. This not a compromised fitment, it is the only way to outfit an S197 or S550 chassis with the highly desirable true-rotatable 11” square fitment.

Simply put, our wheel was designed for long-term durability without sacrificing performance and fit, while also adhering to APEX’s mission of maximizing value. Corner carving & track enthusiasts: this is your wheel.

Brake Clearance - Spokes
Spokes that work for you

If the spokes of a wheel don't clear your brake calipers, then the wheel can’t be used at all. We made sure these wheels offer ample brake clearance, effectively clearing a variety of aftermarket BBK’s as well as popular factory BBK’s like the S197 14” and 15” GT500 Brembo BBK’s, S550 Performance Package Brembo BBK, and even the massive GT350 Brembo BBK.

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

Designing a wheel with spokes that clear a Big Brake Kit, is only half of the battle. The inside of the barrel needs to be large enough to physically fit large calipers and rotors. Be warned— not all wheels are made equal. The barrel of the EC-7 wheel offers unmatched caliper clearance because wheels shouldn’t limit your choice of aftermarket brake kits, and brake kits shouldn’t force you to run oversized wheels. We 2D modeled most Big Brake Kits available in Solidworks and tweaked the wheel design of the EC-7 prior to production in order to fit as many kits as possible. Good news GT350 owners, these wheels not only clear your massive Brembo brakes, the barrel to caliper clearance is quite impressive.

Face Profiles
One design, many levels of beauty

The EC-7 wheel is manufactured in three increasingly-concave face profiles; The shallowest face provides increased caliper clearance on narrow applications, while the deepest concave face reduces weight and creates a stunningly aggressive appearance on low offset and wide-width applications. This Mustang application utilizes our medium profile for the best balance between caliper clearance, concavity, and weight.

Spokes
More than just a pretty face

The curved spokes of the EC-7 serve many purposes, both in terms of form and function. The split "Y" spokes were carefully evaluated from every aspect to ensure light weight and remarkable strength. Their curved design increases brake calipers in almost every application, allowing the EC-7 to fit where the ARC-8 design simply cannot. The unique curvature of each face profile reduces center pad material as they are optimally selected for each unique width and offset. The lack of a deep front lip and spokes that connect directly to the barrel's lip, producing a rigid wheel with even load distribution.

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 EC-7 wheel features bored-out lug recesses that easily accommodate over-sized race lugs and beefy impact sockets. We don’t force you to compromise with narrow aftermarket tuner nuts and 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 EC-7 wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications, and centering rings are never required for any Mustang S197 or S550 application. All 5x114.3mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 70.5mm center bore.

Center Cap
A factory fit and finish

We don't reuse one cap design for all of our wheels. Every EC-7 wheel is designed to work with most factory center caps. You can easily replace APEX center caps with OEM Ford center caps for a clean factory look. The EC-7 wheels will ship with our Gloss Black center cap that mimics the size and shape of a Ford factory center cap.

Wheel Hardware
Original or Aftermarket, it all works

The EC-7 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 EC-7 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 EC-7 wheel doesn't end with center caps. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent TPMS sensors, and any standard sized metal or rubber valve stem.

EC-7 Manufacturing

Flow Forming
Benefits of forging, without the pain

All APEX wheels, including the EC-7 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 light-weight 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 EC-7 wheel design was as 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 EC-7 with confidence is over built for both street and track.

Finishes
Because being faster is just not enough

The EC-7 wheel is available in multiple finishes. All APEX wheels are finished using a comprehensive multi-stage liquid paint system over a powder coated base coat. Standard finishes include gloss-metallic finishes, and semi-gloss or matte finishes.

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 EC-7 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: Sep 19, 2017

Hey there,

We finalized the tire sizes and pricing with our tire vendor and have updated the deal. Unfortunately we had to remove the Pilot Super Sports as our supplier can’t get them in 19” anymore since they are being replaced by the Pilot Sport 4S. We also updated the pricing on the Pilot Sport 4S to reflect current availability. This pricing is now locked in for the deal.

Most 4S prices went up a few dollars slightly, while a couple really wide sizes saw increases of about $10. Pricing is still really competitive with the market as we’re offering these with free shipping, mounting, and balancing.

If you have any questions about tire or wheel fitments for your specific vehicle please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you
