Thank you for your participation so far in this deal. With 73 interested for the 18” deal, and 26 interested for the 17” deal, we are well on our way to achieving the maximum discount! Remember, if you have not yet pledged, showing interest alone is not sufficient enough to unlock any discounts. Take a few minutes and pledge now to get this deal the best discount possible.

Check out our new ARC-8R’s on the TYSPEED M2 race car! Tyler and his team are always chasing the bleeding edge of performance, and we've been right by their side with an identical goal in mind. Armed with our new forged wheel line up, we are proud to support their efforts to get to the next level of performance. Tyspeed is first to receive a set of our all-new polished 18” ARC-8R forged wheels, in a wide 18×10.5” ET40 rotatable square configuration.

What a start this has been! We are excited to see many cars on our new forged wheels. Our friend Dan (@danavon7) brought out his track-prepped E46 M3 to see what our new ARC-8R forged wheels were all about. As a current owner of multiple sets of ARC-8 flow formed wheels, Dan was excited for the opportunity to try out the next evolution of the classic ARC-8 design. Armed to the teeth with a PFC 355mm BBK, the new ARC-8R had no issues providing more than enough real estate for the brakes on this track weapon to breathe comfortably.

To learn more about Dan’s E46 M3, complete with a full build break down, please visit our customer showcase article here: https://www.apexraceparts.com/blog/b...forged-wheels/

As of right now, 99 people have expressed their interest in our 18” forged wheel group buy. By the time many of you read this post, that number will more than likely have shot into the triple digits. A HUGE shoutout to everyone who has supported this deal thus far!

For any F80 owners who have been on the fence about joining in, perhaps our friend Zach’s (@zwalkerrr) Fire Orange F80 M3 sitting on a set of EC-7R forged wheels finished in Brush Clear could help in your decision making process.

During the development of our new forged wheels, we knew that our classic EC-7 design was the ideal choice to lead with for our initial release. Our flow formed EC-7 wheels have been a fan favorite in the enthusiast community for a while now, so when tasked with evolving the timeless design for a forged application, we knew we couldn’t leave anything on the table with the EC-7R.

While aesthetics are very important to us, we believe that functionality should always come first. With the EC-7R, many of the design changes from the original were made purely in the pursuit of that next level of performance. With the additional strength from the EC-7R’s forged construction, we were able to remove significant material from the sides of each spoke. Not only did this help shave even more mass from the already lightweight wheel, but it left the EC-7R with a distinguished and tasteful “I” beam spoke design that looks at home both on the street and at the track.

With over 100 people interested in the 18” forged group buy, we are incredibly excited to see the popularity of our new ARC-8R and EC-7R wheels growing each day. We highly recommend that you get your pledge in early, as we will be allocating design and color preferences in chronological order, and there is a possibility that some sell out. Keep in mind, showing interest alone will not influence production, solidify your place in line, nor contribute to unlocking the tiered discounts. You must submit an official pledge to be part of this deal.

Happy Pledging!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for your support so far in this deal. We would like to take this opportunity to address a question that has been popping up quite a bit lately:

“Am I able to purchase an additional 5th wheel along with the set of 4 that I have already pledged to?”

Yes! We are now offering a 5th wheel add-on to our current forged Group Buys. If you are looking to add a 5th wheel to your pledge, you must contact us directly using the “Message Vendor” function on the deal. Please keep in mind that there are some limitations for purchasing a 5th wheel:

The wheel will be available for purchase at the standard MSRP, not the discounted Group Buy price. Free shipping does apply to those located in the continental U.S.
It must match the fitment and finish of the rest of your pledged.
It will be added manually once the deal has closed, due to technical limitations regarding the group buy format.

If you have any questions regarding the option to add a 5th wheel to your pledge, please feel free to reach out through the “Message Vendor” function on the group buy page, or directly at groupbuys@apexraceparts.com

Also, be sure to watch the ARC-8R studio video below to brush up on some of the details this forged wheel has to offer.



Happy pledging!

We have clearance, Clarence.


Our original flow formed ARC-8 was our first wheel design, and utilizes an older barrel profile that can have compromised brake clearance with certain BBK setups. With the forged ARC-8R, we took everything we learned from the original ARC-8 and applied it to the ground-up development of our all-new profiles and dies. This resulted in a tremendous increase in brake clearance when compared to the flow formed design, with an inner barrel that can clear all the way up to the colossal 380mm Brembo BBK with ease.

To learn more about the obstacles we faced when developing these zero-compromise barrel profiles and dies, along with how we worked to overcome them, please feel free to check out our blog post that dives deep into the topic of forged wheel brake clearances.
https://www.apexraceparts.com/blog/w...ar-big-brakes/

To help show off our new 18” ARC-8R forged wheels, our friend Daniel (@dsc_lol) stopped by our shop with his Yas Marina F82 M4 track car for a photoshoot. Mounting the 18x10” ET25 ARC-8R wheels over the massive Brembo 380mm BBK on this M4 was a breeze. With the dramatically increased barrel clearance that the ARC-8R brings to the table, these new forged wheels are able to go where our original flow formed ARC-8 wheels never could.









Reasons to Pledge Now
  • Get your wheels faster - the more pledges we receive, the sooner we can begin production.
  • Get the color you want - popular finishes may sell out during our first production run. Pledge now to ensure you get the finish you want.
  • Get a bigger discount - more pledges = bigger discounts = more money for other mods.

With 28 official pledges currently listed for our 18” forged group buy, we are just 12 away from unlocking the maximum discount of $400 off + free shipping. With 117 total individuals interested in this deal, this should be an easy win. If you have not yet done so, pledge now and score a significant discount on a set of these all-new forged wheels.

Happy pledging!

Only 9 pledges left to unlock the max discount of $400 off + free shipping!

With 21 days remaining to jump in on the 18” forged wheel group buy, we are well on our way to unlocking the maximum discount. Considering there are 123 people currently showing interest in this deal, there should be no reason why the maximum discount cannot become a reality.

If you want to be one of the first to run our new forged wheels, you must submit your official pledge. Your order will not be processed unless we reach your desired discount, so there is no risk in submitting your pledge right away.

If you have additional questions regarding fitment or have fitment questions regarding a chassis not listed, feel free to message us directly through the “Message Vendor” feature here or send us an email to groupbuys@apexraceparts.com.
