APEX ARC-8 17x9 Group Buy Less than 24 hours left

EDIT: Groupbuy is over, the goal was not met.



https://www.groupbuyparts.com/index....ack-wheel.html

This is a potential great deal, groupbuy run by Apex Race Parts themselves! made to order wheels. Max goal of $250 off and free shipping, bringing the price to just under $800. If we can get 11 more pledged, we hit max goal.

This is a great wheel at a potential great price point, that is light weight and great for track use.

Also they way the pledging and onboard system they have for finishing the deal is great. Upon closing if the deal goes through, they only collect a $250 deposit, and the rest of the payment comes later.

From Apex Deal Moderator:

"We’re just a day away from this deal closing now. The best price is easily achievable, but most of you that haven’t joined yet seem to be making one critical mistake; you’re assuming it benefits you to wait and watch the deal before you join. Here’s why that’s self-sabotaging, and why you need to complete your pledge now:

Group Buys aren’t auctions, or market prices that fluctuate. Watching and waiting only hurts you. You want to submit your pledge ASAP so that it can be combined with other pledges to unlock discounts. Without having everyone's pledges it’s next to imposible to unlock anything. If you’ve been waiting, don’t worry. You still have until tomorrow night to get your pledge in.

49 members are interested in this deal. 19 members completed their pledge as of right now. Even though they’ve pledged, nothing has been unlocked yet. Many of those pledges will only turn into buyers when the $250 discount is reached.

Only 11 more members need to join at any discount level before everyone’s orders would instantly receive the max discount.

Simply take the 3 minutes to submit your pledge now. You’re not charged unless the deal goes through, and this deal only collects a $250 deposit at closing."

How they look on the car:

^^^This guy is actually on this forum.

If it matters, i am not an Apex rep., just a fellow 86'r wanting a nice set of wheels. Also because they are made to order, the will not start shipping till later this year since they are made to order, starting in August.

THERE IS STILL TIME!

I would do this, but I'm only interested in the silver. It says they have to have a minimum of 13 for any given color to get produced. I don't want to get stuck with some other color.

You can pledge just for silver and not accept another color and not be charged anything if they dont make silver. I am hoping for silver too.

Well, unfortunately, the group buy did not go through due to the onboard goal not being met. Which is fine, but this is because more than half of the people were pledging to a goal of $250, which is why it was so important to get to the 30 pledged goal. But hopefully they will do another groupbuy in the future. Thanks to all who helped participate.

FYI, this is still up in the air. Apex is contacting those who pledged 250 to see if they would reconsider to meet the 200 goal. IF they ALL agree to accept the 200 discount, then the groupbuy can still come into fruition. They are also still accepting new orders but you'll have to PM or email them directly.
