► APEX | Wheel Style Design Survey!


APEX wants to hear from you and ensure we are providing the designs you want the most for your 86/BRZ community, and thus we’re asking for your feedback on which direction we should go. APEX has always put the community first and takes your guidance and opinions into everything we offer. Whether you love our current designs or want to see something else, we want to know! Have a finish that you love, but we don’t offer it yet? We want to know! We are excited to continue our relationship with this community and ensure you are proud of the fitment and style wheels being offered.

So when you grab your next cup of coffee, or during your late-night forum browsing, could you take a minute to share your thoughts with us? We appreciate your feedback and look forward to contributing to this community further.

Done! FWIW I adore the EC-7R, but would prefer if I could get it a bit narrower than 9in.

I said the same. Give me that same front profile and look, just take an inch off the back.

We love the EC-7R and will definitely consider it for the near future. I personally run the 17x9.5 ET40 EC-7R in bronze on my car

I'd probably buy a couple sets of those wheels pictured.

No surprise there. SM10's are a real gem, especially in the fitments that allow the spokes to have more curvature. Fingers crossed for a 18x10

I have to agree with you on that! The deeper profile would look perfect on the 86.
