► APEX - Letís Make APEX 19Ē SM-10 and FL-5ís a Reality.



In 2017 we released two new wheel designs, the SM-10 and FL-5, which incorporate new styling and strengthening features like spoke scalloping and reinforced lips. We initially released 18” diameters, however many of you have requested 19” versions. In 2018 we are planning to make that a reality, but we need your help! Once we get a better understanding of the demand for our 19” SM-10 and FL-5 wheels, we will determine which design and finish to move forward with for our initial release.

The best way to help bring these 19” wheels to fruition would be to tell us a bit more about what you’d look for in a set of 19” SM-10 or FL-5 wheels. If you have an extra minute, feel free to share your thoughts with us. We appreciate your feedback, and look forward to expanding our product offering for the BMW community.

TAKE THE SURVEY

Check out our on-car renderings of the 19" FL-5 and SM-10 wheels below. Since initial production run will be limited to the most popular design and finishes, please let us know which you option you prefer.

SM-10 19 x 8.5 and 19 x 9.5 or 19 x 10, offsets in the +35 to +40 range like your other F30 fitment. I would immediately put my name on a list for a set of those.

Thank you for the feedback! Currently we are considering 19x8.5" ET35 as a front fitment, and 19x9.5" ET40-45 options for the rear. We will have more updates once we move towards production

Also, slightly OT but do you have any ETA on when the 18 x 9.5 +43 SM-10 will be available as well?

No concrete ETA just yet, but we are hoping to expand out fitment lineup in 2018!

Interested pending pictures. I hope the spokes would be slightly thinner or redesigned for 19s. They just look stubby in 18s.

Also agree with high offsets to fit mo' tire.

We should have some renders completed soon. There will be a slight redesign of the spokes since the diameter will be bigger. I'll update as soon as I have more details.

No final weight numbers yet, but they should be less than our 19" EC-7's
