Apex achieves light weight and high strength by Flow-Forming
(aka Roll Forging) their wheels and creating application specific
designs. This assures that wheels are light yet durable enough for
the rigors of daily transportation, or the track and no spacers or
centering rings are needed for most applications.
The EC-7 addresses the concerns of more and more racers and
track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fit and performance.
With the increase of faster and heavier cars being used in racing,
HPDEs, and spirited driving, the EC-7 was designed and engineered
to handle extreme abuse on track and street, offer a wide range of
direct fitments, while producing a lightweight wheel.
Produced specifically for BMWs. The EC-7 is a performance wheels
with classic mesh styling for the uncompromising BMW enthusiast
that also appreciates a great value.
Aftermarket suspension components, alignment, ride height, and
tire size, all effect fitment. A modification to any of these
variables could have a negative impact on proper fitment.
The EC-7's spoke profile has been designed with a curve to
provide additional caliper clearance. It can clear a BBK spacer
free on applications where the ARC-8 could not. A significant
improvement to the EC-7 is the increased barrel clearance that now
allows certain sizes of the 18" version of this wheel to properly
clear the Brembo 380mm BBK. Just like the rest of the APEX wheel
line, the EC-7 is once again produced using the Flow-Forming
technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called "roll forging
or 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. We've
produced an even stronger wheel by combining the strength of the
lightweight barrel with a more robust face design. The EC-7
welcomes endurance racing and potholes.
