APEX ARC-8: Official Wheel Gallery

There are a lot of members out there running the ARC-8 wheels now, with a mix of staggered/square setups and different tire sizes.

Lets make this the official ARC-8 wheel gallery for the Z4 M and non-M

Feel free to just post up pictures, BUT If you don't mind, please also include the following since many tire sizes are not a direct fitment, and members would like to know the specifics of how to achieve the same fit/look:
  • Front/Rear Wheel size
  • Front and rear tire size, tire make/model
  • Any required modifications: spacers, camber, rolling..

lowered on KW V3's. Alignment settings are on the aggressive side, also track the car once in a while. Currently running 3.5 degrees camber up front and 2.5 in the back, so needed a 10mm spacers up front in

order to clear the front struts. Have minimal rubbing on the plastic fender liner/front bumper junction area. Tires are NT-01's up front, and Maxxis prototype race compound tires in the back, testing for the company.

the tyre profile looks a bit too chunky in 18". 19's would look way better, but thats only my opinion.

I love the 19.5's up front for their dish. Are there any issues running F: 18x9.5 245/40/18
R: 18x10, 275/35/18 with H&R springs only? Or does it depend on sidewall width of each particular tire brand? I'd love to run this setup

The 9.5" up front would clear the strut tube just fine, and you could stretch a 245 onto it, but it will be very clearly stretched, while the rear 275 on a 10" wheel will look meaty. This will result in an out of balanced look.

It's hard to say how it would fit up front, as a stretched 245 may be stretched enough to clear the fender, but with the wheel being pushed out 13mm more then if you were to run a 9" wheel, I would say you're going to want some negative camber up front to make it fit correctly.

How is a 245 possibly a tight fit on a 9.5" wheel? I thought everyone is running 245's on the front with 9"? Do you mean the 245 will almost be too small for the rim? Please advise.

That was my setup with the 18's. Only I had the 8.5's up front. Too much rubbing w/o camber plates with the 9.5's I believe. As soon asd I have the fundage I'm getting a new black set for the coupe. No rubbing at all with the H&R's and that size tire/wheel. It blows away the stock width and looks mean.

The 9.5" wheels have a more aggressive offset and are wider. So other variables like the brand/model tire you run, ride height, and camber will all be a factor in how that setup would fit.

Those of you running 9.5 all around. What suspension set ups are you all running and what offsets? Any rubbing with stock suspension?

TCKline D/A with 3.5 degrees of camber in the front. Strictly a track setup.
