APEX ARC-8 - 17 x 9.5J (5x120)

APEX ARC-8 wheels have become one of the most sought after wheels for both track and street, and with good reason. They're light, strong, and are specifically designed to fit your BMW. Plus, they just happen to have a classic design that never looks old.

The split-spoke design of the ARC-8 has been used in performance wheel design for decades, as it provides a superior compromise between strength and weight, resulting in an ideal choice for a street or track wheel. All APEX wheels incorporate a BMW-specific hubcentric design, so they're a direct fit designed specifically for you. 

 

The APEX ARC-8 wheel achieves its combination of strength, light weight, and affordability through flow-forming technology. By flow-forming the wheel, weight is reduced in the barrel through a process sometimes referred to as "roll forging." Roll forging, while not the same as the traditional forging, is superior to regular casting. The rolling process occurs under extreme pressure, yielding a barrel that is stronger than a standard cast wheel, with certain material properties that are similar to a standard forged wheel. This added barrel strength allows for a reduction in overall wheel weight, while not sacrificing any of the strength you'd expect from durable flow-formed wheels.

 

Thanks to its lightweight barrel and robust face design, the ARC-8 stands up well against the rigors of endurance racing, as well as your average street potholes. ARC8 17" wheels carry a 1,450lb load rating; ARC8 18" have a 1,550lb load rating.
