~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wheel Details:

Manufacturing process:
All APEX wheels are flow-formed resulting in a light weight, track and street worthy wheel
Flow-forming significantly reduces weight in the barrel by rolling the barrel out into it's final shape using large wheels/disks applying high pressure
This step is the same step that monoblock forged wheels go through to shape their barrels
By doing this, the flow-formed wheel's barrel has the same density and strength as the barrel of a fully forged wheel
This significantly reduces rotational mass at the furthest point from the center, which is the most important weight savings area on a wheel.

Strength:
These wheels are fully JWL/VIA certified. Strength testing was done by the VIA in Japan
Don't be fooled by competitors that claim to be certified, but cannot provide registration numbers
There are vendors on this forum selling wheels that are not certified, yet they claim they are. Scary stuff!
CLICK HERE to see all VIA registration numbers

Misc.
Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps
Accepts OEM Roundel center caps
Does not come with valve stems
Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion
Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric
TPMS compatible

The next round we host will have non-m specific sizes.
Cool! waiting to get some 18x9s for my 330.

Any chance that you'll come out with a different wheel design in the future? Like the Aero-7 in non-1 series fitments?

We're working on new designs, but they won't be available until Q1 of 2012

The AERO-7 won't be produced for any other fitments, as it wasn't a success. It was our test of stepping out of race products and catering to an undeserved marked (1 series direct fitment street wheels). It's features didn't represent what we stand for.

I am VERY happy with the ARC8s when it comes to looks, price, quality and weight. I would love to see an 8 or 10 spoke wheel with the same flat/concave face as the ARC8s.

Bottom line. I don't want to have 4 sets of the same style wheel! I am willing to do a set of ARC8s and a set of something else for both of my cars.
