The Flow Form Advantage
Flow forming enables APEX to create high performance wheels without the price premium of forging. It improves the mechanical properties and grain structure of the barrel, increasing its strength and stiffness, which allows for using less material and reducing weight. Thanks to superior engineering, these flow formed wheels have a higher load rating than some competitors' forged wheels.
"I" Beam Spokes
One of the most prominent features of the SM-10 is its advanced "I" beam spoke machining. Any excess material that doesn’t add strength is carved out from the sides of the spokes using a precision CNC ball cutter. This process is often deemed cost-prohibitive by others, but for performance without compromise APEX believes it is essential.
Bigger, Tougher Inner Lip
The inner lip is the most vulnerable part of a wheel because it has no spokes for support. The APEX Evolution line adds more material to this high-impact area as an extra layer of protection against track berms, potholes, and whatever else the road may throw at you.
APEX uses the deepest concave face profiles possible for every application after factoring in critical clearances such as brake calipers. The SM-10 utilizes 3 unique profiles to make this possible, with the deepest concave face delivering reduced weight and a stunningly aggressive appearance.
Big Brake Clearance
Big brakes often require bigger, heavier, more expensive wheels, which aren’t ideal in a performance environment. The SM-10 is one APEX's many wheels which solve this problem. Through comprehensive laser scanning and endless rounds of test-fitting, they have created 18” wheels to clear huge brakes that typically require 19” wheels from other manufacturers.
Whether it’s a day at the track or months of street driving, repeated hard braking can make a tire slip along the bead seat and go out of balance, causing vibration. APEX has added knurled beads to select sizes of this design to help grip the tire and reduce unwanted slippage.
APEX conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis to reinforce high stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The end result is a wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.
Built for Impact Sockets
Track wheels need track tools. Don’t settle for wheels that require undersized tuner lugs or thin walled sockets. All APEX wheels accommodate over-sized race lugs and impact sockets to make swapping wheels lightning fast.
All Evolution line 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.
No centering rings required. All Corvette specific 5x120.65mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 70.3mm center bore.
ALL APEX wheels come with a Gloss Black cap included which is interchangeable with the Corvette C7 OE cap.
The EC-7 wheels can be used with all Corvette OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a 60° tapered seat.
All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. Sensors and stems are available as an option.
Most wheels ship within 48 hours.
