We're not taking names any more. That was just to get a rough idea of how many members would be participating.

I'm interested in this size as well..... 18x8.5 ET38 and 18x9.5 ET22.

Can someone point me to a pic of these wheels on an Interlagos Blue Z4M? I can't decide between hypersilver and hyperblack.

Thanks....

I hope I don't get in trouble for linking to another forum, but here are some pics of a blue 1 series with the satin black wheels:

I like that Apex has done their research with these wheels, ensuring proper fitment and keeping them as light as possible while still passing all the required strength tests. These wheels are designed specifically for BMWs.

With that much camber you can run the 18x9.5" et35 front wheel with a 265/35/18 and have proper front fender clearance. On the rear you could run an 18x10" with a 275/35/18, or run the the 18x9.5's square with the same tire size for a rotatable neutral setup.

updated list. We've officially reached the second tier. We're 10 members away from tier 3. There's a really good chance we'll make it.

All of the 18s have high disc clearance as well so that I don't have to worry about running spacers with a Stoptech ST60/ST40 355 setup?

The 18x9.5" et35 wheel has a 1mm clearance issue with a stoptech 355mm kit. A 3mm spacer solves this. BUT if you were to run a meaty 265 in an extreme summer tire or even more importantly an r-compound, you would most likely need a spacer for strut tube clearance anyway. So you'd be killing to birds with one stone. With a small spacer basically anything fits except for a brembo 380mm kit.


wheels are dirty. I believe this setup has a 5mm front spacer. maybe none, I'll confirm with the owner.

Does the 9" require a spacer with the 355 6pot kid ? Please confirm, will likely make a decision this week and get a set ordered.

Yes, it is a 5mm spacer, could probably get away with a 3mm. Keep in mind I was running the TCK D/A at the time, no idea how the clearance will be with stock suspension.

9" has lots of clearance, no need for spacers.

No the 18x9" does not need spacers for caliper clearance. Its spokes are flatter, which results in better clearance:

Here is an 18x8.5" wheel with no spacer clearing a 365mm Brembo 6 piston monoblock kit on an E46 M3. The 18x9" wheel has a few millimeters more clearance behind the spokes then the 8.5" wheel.

Group Buy ends Monday. 5 away from the third tier. 11 away from from the 4th tier. Chance we might make it to $200 off? Highly likely as most members sign up last minute.

If you guys want to save the extra money consider putting a link to the Group Buy in your signature until it closes. (closes at the end of this coming Monday). Or share it on facebook.
