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

Group Buy Details:

Free Shipping*
Free Shipping is available to members in the 48 mainland states
Alaska, Hawaii, and International members will receive a $75 credit off the actual cost of shipping
non-mainland/international members: please contact us prior to ordering for a shipping quote
We'll either send you an invoice, or a code to adjust your order

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: Mid November (18th-23)
This is a Pre-order Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment
These wheels are currently in production and scheduled to be finished mid October
Wheels will arrive at our facility mid November, and will ship out within 3 business days of arrival
All orders will ship out on the same day after we've processed/packaged them
Customs/Port delays can add an extra 1-2 weeks delay, but its rare
We cannot guarantee an exact ETA date. Our estimates have historically been within +/- one week
We will keep everyone up to date of even minor changes if they occur via this thread

Payment and Sign Up:
This Group Buy is now CLOSED
We are not taking any more sign-ups


Discount Tiers
The price you pay at sign up is based on how many members are currently signed up
At the close of the Group Buy, everyone's order/payment will be adjusted to the final discount tier reached
At the end, everyone pays the same price
There is zero advantage in signing up at the last minute

Bonus Front size
The 18x10" wheel size does not qualify for Group Buy discounts
selecting this size means your Group Buy discount will be cut in half
You will still receive free shipping on the set, but if the discount is $150 off the set, then you only receive $75 off
Instead of not offering the option at all, we've decided the 50% compromise will work for those few who select it

Refunds
There are NO refunds on Group Buy orders. Group Buys are special order, which is why payment is taken in advance
Only replacement of defective, or mis-shipped products are available

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

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

Hey, do you think there'll be another February Group Buy? This October wasn't possible since I was moving. But, I'd be good for a February buy for 18x9.5 in hyper black.
