Official APEX Wheels Showroom Gallery Thread

With an increasing amount of BMW owners mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles now, we see many photographs of APEX wheels being shared on the forums. This thread is meant to be a collective effort of various pictures of the APEX wheels, as the official APEX wheel gallery for the Z4 and Z4M.

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:
  • Wheel Model, Color, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Fender Rolling, etc.)

We will start here:



  • EC-7, Race Silver, 18x8.5" ET35 and 18x9.5" ET22
  • 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 Nitto NT05 tires
  • Eibach Sportline Springs with Bilstein HD Struts and stock camber plates




  • ARC-8, Satin Black, 18x9.5" ET35 and 18x10" ET25
  • 255/35/18 and 275/35/28 Hankook RS3 tires
  • H&R Coilovers, Camber Plates
  • -3 front camber, -2.5 rear camber
  • Coilovers are at lowest ride height setting

Here's a recent one from a meet, my car is the first car mentioned in this thread, those photos were during the fit test, I decided to go with the darker finish:
  • Anthracite EC-7 18x8.5 ET 35 Front, 18x10 ET 25 Rear
  • Michelin PSS 245/40R18 Front, Michelin PSS 275/35R18 Rear
  • Eibach Sportline Springs, Bilstein HD Struts, stock camber plates

I've only ever encountered rubbing when I was doing the BMW Car Control Clinic skid pad exercise. Don't remember much if any rub on the track, but then again I'm slow as hell so I probably wasn't pushing it hard.

Quick question, was the rubbing during the car control clinic front or rear?

Fronts. I haven't actually checked the rears to see if they did rub, when it stops raining I'll check it out, but I doubt it since there is significant gap back there.

Fronts rub on the fender, not the strut side correct? How much negative camber do you have up front?

Yeah fender for sure, I haven't actually gone under the car to see if it's rubbing on the strut side. I don't remember off the top of my head how much camber I'm running, I'll have to check when I get back home, but I know it's very close to stock specs.

F360 that looks perfect. Square 275s, aero skirts, painted front and rear reflectors, white, supersprint, splitter, etc... put a wing on it and that's my dream track car right there
