We don't have any plans to produce 19" FL-5s currently but may consider it as we complete other projects. What fitments would you like to see in a 19" FL-5? just a standard mirror of our 19x10 ET25 F 19x11 ET44 R option?

The Flow Formed ARC-8 is our lightest, most affordable wheel, which is why itís been our best seller for over 10 years. Part of our Classic line, it's a timeless motorsport design engineered to optimize weight and strength.

The Flow Formed SM-10 and FL-5 feature I-Beam spokes to reduce weight without sacrificing strength.

The Flow Formed APEX FL-5

The FL-5 is our only wheel to feature dual flow forming. Both the barrel and front outer lip are formed using high-pressure rollers to maximize strength while simultaneously reducing weight.

Hi there,

At this time, we do not have any immediate plans to offer a FL-5 Group Buy in the near future. However, I would highly suggest joining our newsletter (located at the bottom of our website home page) to stay up to date with any future promotions or sales moving forward.

Hyper Black Finish

The Hyper Black finish, only available on our Flow Formed ARC-8 model, is a great alternative to Hyper Silver. Featuring a darker inner barrel and shadow chrome like appearance, it's sure to give your BMW a stylish yet aggressive look.

Hey guys, I thought 18 inch flow formed Arc8s will not fit on our F8x chassis standard brakes. How did this guy on your gallery manage to fit these flow formed Arc8s on his F80?

You're correct, our current 18" ARC-8s will not clear the standard F8X brakes. We have an updated version of our flow-formed ARC-8s that have a redesigned barrel and inner lip in the works that allows them to clear those brakes. The picture linked above is a pre-production set of these wheels that we used for test-fitting/photography and they aren't available for purchase yet. We are still working on an exact ETA for these updated wheels.

PERFECT!!!! I always wanted 18 inch ARC8s. On your website, it states that they will be available on March 2021. Is that the ETA you are expecting? Also, these all have the deep concavity profiles right?

The March ETA is for the older design wheels that will not clear the steel F8X brakes I believe. It's going to be a while longer before the V2 ARC-8s are ready to go across the board in all fitments.

Another thing that may also be of interest is that we will be releasing 18x11 ET44 ARC-8s for the first time as well with the barrel improvements to give you more choices for rear wheels on the F8X chassis. Like our EC-7s and SM-10s, these are optimized to let you run 305/35-18s as a direct fit. You may have noticed this wheel in the flicker galleries.

All of the F8X compatible wheels should be profile 3 max concavity wheels with the new V2 barrel. All of our ARC-8s across the board will be getting these improvements though so they aren't just for the F8X chassis or concave wheels specifically. We are expanding our 19" offerings as well with a focus on M2C fitments but they will also work on some less aggressive M3/M4 applications as well .

Finishing Touches

APEX wheels are finished using a multi-stage liquid paint over a powder coated base coat. This coating process leaves lug holes, center bores and mounting pads untouched, which ensures proper fit and torque values.
