► APEX | Project ML-10




Some of you may have already seen the reveal of this project on our instagram, but we wanted to reach out to the BMW community on the forums as well to collect feedback about the development of a new wheel design.


Project ML-10 Background:


After Josh, one of our Senior Product Engineers installed a widebody kit on his race car project, he had to design a custom set of wheels to fit his extreme application. Originally a one off project, when he showed the team what he created, we were floored. And our community was too when we shared a picture on Instagram and Facebook.


We’ve made it an official project, but to make this wheel a reality, we need you to decide on some of the details by taking our survey.





Need more information? Subscribe to our newsletter and check out project updates along with additional photos on our website.

Please make this! BRZ is crying for a dish/lip in 17x9 x 9.5 or 10

These are absolutely gorgeous!!!

Given the spoke design and strength calcs/FEA you guys are presumably doing, would these be optimized for flow-formed, forged, or both? Given my use case and budget, I'm a prime target for a flow-formed offering.

The ML-10 is expected to be a forged wheel.

However, we do have some new flow formed projects in the works as well so keep an eye out!

This is my favourite design (deep dish/lip and the mesh face)! I can't wait.
