APEX 18" EC-7 Lightweight Wheel - Group Buy
Since 2007, APEX Race Parts has been focused on and became well known for its performance wheel offerings within the BMW community. Our unwavering goal is to eliminate compromise from the enthusiasts pursuit of maximizing performance, and we feel that Group Buys are the best way to accomplish that objective. Group Buys allow us to leverage economies of scale to eliminate compromise and deliver our popular wheels at an even more compelling price points.

What’s different about this group buy?
Joining Group Buy deals via forums is traditionally a manual process that involves primitive lists, and hoping the host does a good job organizing the payment and shipping details for the entire group. Since our deals have grown so large, we are working hand in hand with a team that’s building a tool to organize these deals in a single, well organized location. This deal is entirely managed on GroupBuyParts.com, where you can discuss, pay, and follow the deal’s status.

How do I participate?
Visit the official Deal Dashboard on GroupBuyParts.com. From there you can show your interest by joining our feeler list. You’ll receive an email reminder when the deal officially opens. When the deal is live and accepting payments, you can complete checkout and pay for your order from the same page. All product details, member participants, and discussions can be found on that Dashboard.

7 days left until the Payment Phase opens. We're at 12 members on the feeler list with 19 others watching the Group Buy.

I have received some really good questions over the past few days about these EC-7s and I wanted to take the opportunity to share the questions and answers with the community. This is a new thing we're doing and if it's helpful, reply and we'll see about posting up good questions we receive.

Q: Hi David, I am looking for a staggered setup for my E46 M3 that I drive daily, but I don't want to go crazy with fender rolling, camber, etc. Which EC-7 setup would you suggest? ***8212; Mike

A: Mike, Great question. Staggered EC-7 wheels are a very popular setup for those who want an improved aesthetic look without extensive modifications. For a bolt-on setup, I would suggest the 18x9.0" ET31 with 245/40/18 tires in the front and the 18x10" ET25 with 275/35/18 tires in the rear.

A wider front and rear wheel is possible, but the wider setup shares a nearly-identical aesthetic, but comes with the complication of requiring modifications like camber, spacers, or fender rolling.

If you guys have any questions about a fitment for your car or about the group buy in general, feel free to post them here or PM us. We're closely monitoring these threads to best serve you.
