Official APEX Wheels Showroom Gallery Thread



Show Us What You Got!

With an increasing number of Z4 and Z4M enthusiasts mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles for both street and track use, we see many photographs of APEX wheels shared throughout the forum. This thread will compile photos of different APEX wheel fitments, as well as provide the community with detailed information surrounding wheel and tire fitment, alignment settings, brake and suspension clearances and more!

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
