Z4 M Apex ARC-8 Wheels have arrived!

The group buy ARC-8 wheels from Apex arrived today. I went conservative with 8.5 front and 9.5 rear widths. I've already had the Dunlop Direzza Star Specs I ordered (thanks Tire Rack!) mounted. The wheels were packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition (thanks Eddy!).

They are very light and appear to be very high quality. I was able to fit a 245/40-18 up front and still have more than 1/2" of clearance to the strut, so no fitment issues. Enjoy the pictures!

You may notice I have had the BMW Performance carbon fiber rear spoiler lip installed. More pictures will be posted for that soon...

Group opinion: Bmw logo caps or the Apex ones?

I personally think that the APEX wheel caps compliment the hyperblack with a faux carbon fibre print and doesnt look like roundel overkill. And second, they are obviously NOT BMW wheels.

I don't think there's any thing wrong with using them if that's what you like.
I just think that there are more than enough roundels on the car to suit me.

True on the amount of Roundels. I might try and go black and white with them. Might be awhilw though as these wheels wiped me out $$.

mhrir and MakoBimmer1, thanks for posting pics. Both your rides look great, and I'm glad the two different fitments are working out well.

Starspecs are an aggressive tire, so if you're going for a conservative fitment, then 265's are clearly the easier fit. If you go with a less aggressive tire then 275's on the 10's also fit with ease.

Would you two mind if I use your photos for our customer gallery so others can see these vehicle/color/fitment combinations?

Thanks,

-Eddy P
