The APEX ARC-8 wheel is now available in 17”, 18” and 19″ sizes for BMW. The ARC-8 design was first released back in 2009, and originally only available in race oriented fitments in a smaller 17″ and 18″ diameter. The straight spoke mesh design allowed for a strong and light-weight wheel that quickly became popular among racers and enthusiasts alike for it’s deep spoke concavity.
ARC-8 Features & Benefits
Many unique fitments for most BMW models in 17”, 18”, & 19″ sizes

The ARC-8 is produced using the Flow-forming technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called ‘spin forging’, produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass and performance. By combining the strength of a forged, lightweight barrel and a more robust face design, we’ve produced a wheel that welcomes endurance racing, hard driving, and even potholes.
