When you build a car, often the moment it all comes together is when you fit that perfect set of wheels and tires that fill the fenders and add an aggressive appearance to the car with better fitment and more stylish looks. This changes much more than just the look of the car, it changes its attitude, its intention, and its presence. Stock wheels on an incredibly modified car give it an unfinished look, while the right wheels in the right fitment can give even a bone stock or barely upgraded car an entirely new feel and unique style. Choosing the right wheels, though, can be a nightmare of indecision. You run through the list of new options, balance budget with quality, and jump between the various channels of used options, new options, and countless manufacturers with equally countless designs. How do you decide? You pick something that meets all your requirements for style, fitment, weight, budget, and quality. Easier said than done, right? Wrong. That’s where APEX Wheels enters the picture.
With a dedication to providing their take on classic styles often most sought after designs and a lightweight, durable, quality construction, APEX Wheels have provided many enthusiasts, particularly in the BMW world, with the perfect blend of new-wave and nostalgia that have the benefits of reducing unsprung rotational mass and looking the part. Form and function, neither sacrificed, make their ever-popular SM-10 design a favorite on everything from the classic E36 to the most modern F30 and more.
Fitment is crucial. The downside to monoblock wheels is that they are often limited on fitment options and don’t allow you to rebuild for custom specs. However, with lightweight construction and a bit of catering to that BMW fitment market, APEX designed their wheels with perfect offsets and sizes for nearly every modern BMW. This means you don’t need to worry about fitment issues like too much poke or not enough. They fit just right because they were meant to fit your car.
This does, of course, mean they carry a heftier price tag than many ‘universal’ wheel manufacturers who offer multiple bolt pattern fitments and large center bores, but it does mean that, like a tailored suit, they are intended for your BMW. Let’s face it: paying slightly more for the right set of wheels is always a better option than saving a few dollars on a set of wheels that will require spacers and add weight.
Speaking of unsprung weight, APEX Wheels aren’t just for show: they are designed to be the perfect wheels for competition as they are durable enough to withstand track conditions, light enough to give your car an extra bump in performance feel, and relatively inexpensive enough to replace with ease on any budget. That means you don’t have to worry if you do somehow manage to taco a wheel on the street or track since a replacement won’t set you back in the thousands like many other ‘real’ wheels.
With a proper set of APEX Wheels on your BMW, you stand to check all three boxes of looks, quality, and performance all within most tuners’ budgets. Give yourself the present you deserve. Give your BMW the wheels it needs. Go with a set of APEX Wheels and start clipping corners in style in your BMW with the confidence you’re turning heads in the process.
