With 22 days left in our ongoing 19” Group Buy, we wanted to feature a few non-M 3 and 4 series on our 19x9 ET30 VS-5RS wheels. This is the least aggressive width and offset that we are launching during this Group Buy making it an excellent OEM+ option for front M-car fitment or square fitments on non-M 3 & 4 series detailed below.​


Wheels: 19x9 ET30 VS-5RS in Brushed Clear Front & Rear

The Group Buy Racers have been waiting for.







The Design

VS-5RS





Our lightest design ever returns, this time in a 17” diameter. We focused on widths and offsets optimized for a variety of popular E46 and E36 track and race car applications for this Group Buy. compared to our flow formed lines, wheel weights have been reduced and load ratings increased while the diameter change means more affordable tire costs for your average HPDE participant.​

Built to a SPEC:



This 17” deal includes our 17x9 ET42 VS-5RS, a wheel optimized specifically for the rigors of SPEC E46 racing. APEX is no stranger to the E46 platform and spec E46 competition. This wheel was optimized specifically for the series with a weight per wheel of 16.2 lbs, the exact minimum weight allowed by SPEC E46. We could have made these wheels even lighter but we reinvested the extra material into places racers will appreciate. More robust inner lips and a higher load rating than the JWL minimums prevent bent wheels and keep you on track. Paintless knurled bead seats grip the series mandated 255/40-17 Nitto RRs and keep wheel/tire sets balanced.

Our ARC-8s in the same fitment have served us and a huge number of SPEC E46 racers well for years on track, but these new VS-5RS wheels improve on them in every way. Over 1.5 lbs lighter and stronger than the ARC-8s with fully forged construction, the new VS-5RS is ready to become the APEX standard for SPEC E46 competitors everywhere.

17” Customer Feature





Alec’s Space Gray E90 335i on 17” APEX VS-5RS wheels


While 18s and 19s are commonly run on the E9x non-m chassis, we wanted to take this opportunity to showcase these 17s on one of these cars. With aggressive drag fitments and taller sidewall tires being a popular option on modified E9X chassis, the VS-5RS are a natural fit.​


[video]


17x9.5 ET35 Square

APEX Fitment notes:

Fitment shown: Brushed clear VS-5RS

17x9.5 ET35 Front & Rear VS-5RS on 255/40-17 NT01 tires

5mm front spacers used for strut clearance


17x9.5 ET35 square isn’t often run on the E9X cars but it can work with additional negative camber dialed in up front for clearance. This wheel fitment is an easy fit in the rear of the car with wider tires and taller tire sidewall options including 275/40-17 and is the choice of drag racers looking to exploit a meatier tire option ¼ mile at a time. 17x9 ET30 can be run up front for an easy staggered setup or all-around for a perfect OEM+ square fitment.​









17x9 ET30 Square

Fitment shown: Anthracite VS-5RS

17x9 ET42 Front & Rear with 255/40-17 Toyo RR slick tires

12mm spacers used Front and Rear to give an effective offset of ET30


17x9 ET30 is our default square recommended fitment for this platform. Despite the smaller diameter wheels, the optimized barrel profile of both of these wheel fitments easily cleared the large aftermarket brembo brakes. Aggressive Toyo Slicks are showcased on this set of wheels as a carryover from our shoots on SPEC E46 3 series race cars.​

19” Bronze Fitments Inbound





By popular demand, we’ve added Satin Bronze as a finish option to one of our most popular 19” fitments. Our current lineup of 3 finishes has already proven to be quite popular within the BMW community, but we aren’t done yet. By popular request including some of our own staff members who own F87 M2s, we’ve decided to introduce Satin Bronze in a staggered 19” fitment. Despite being engineered for the M2 Competition, these 19” wheels will work well on other BMW chassis like the F8X M3 and M4 or other applications with spacers.



The Details


Fitments

19x9.5 ET28

19x10.5 ET45


Our most popular fitment for the M2 has been reborn. This versatile fitment is returning with an all new look.​


A Closer Look


We are launching these wheels on short notice and don’t have on car samples, but we hope you’ll appreciate these photo-realistic renders put together by our team. True on car shots of this finish on other applications will also be included to give you a better sense of how the color looks in varied lighting conditions:​















These wheels have already been produced and are en-route. The first run is a small production run made to satisfy immediate demand and help us justify future expansion of bronze options within the BMW space. These wheels are arriving in Mid August and are currently available to pre-order on our website.​
