► Fire Orange BMW F80 M3 with APEX EC-7R Forged Wheels

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


Fire Orange + APEX FORGED

We invited our customer Zach (@issuhm3) to bring his Fire Orange F80 M3 out to our shop for a photoshoot with our new 18” EC-7R forged wheels. Once Zach arrived, we mounted up a set of the EC-7R’s in our new Brushed Clear finish, and headed out to the old Alameda Naval Base. With a load rating of 1,800 lbs, these new forged wheels armed Zach’s F80 to be a serious weapon, both on the street and at the track. We figured there was no better way to display his F80’s newfound firepower, than in the presence of the USS Hornet. With a beefy 18” setup, you really can’t go wrong with the aggressive and flush appearance that the EC-7R’s provide on the F8X chassis.

APEX Wheel & Tire Setup
  • 18◊10″ ET25 EC-7R Forged Wheels in Brushed Clear Finish
  • 275/35/R18 Toyo Proxes R888R
  • 5mm front spacers - 18x10" ET25 is typically a bolt-on fitment with no spacers required, however, this car is equipped with KW Clubsports which are known for eating up inner clearance.
Modifications
  • BMS Intakes
  • BMS Chargepipes
  • Active Autowerke Midpipe
  • Zima V2 Downpipes
  • Stage 2 Hex Tune
  • KW Clubsport 3 Way Coilovers

18"s are so underrated. Wheels continue to get bigger, it seems, with every new generation that comes out. 19"s and 20"s certainty look the part but unfortunately, performance is sacrificed considerably. My car is faster (in a straight line) with 18" Apex snow tire setup than the stock 19" 437M summers.

Those of you who are looking to shed weight from his/her fat modern BMW, go down a wheel size or two. You'll definitely feel the difference.

Nice photos and wheels. What is the weight per wheel? And are these wheels fully forged (some companies use clever naming to incorrectly convey that their wheels are "forged")?
