► APEX | 17” & 18” Forged EC-7R Wheel Group Buy - Up to $400 OFF + Free Shipping



17” & 18” EC-7R Forged 86/BRZ & WRX Wheel Group Buy

8/20 Update: You guys did it! The top discount tier of $400 off + free shipping is officially unlocked!!
There are still a few days left for others to join the deal. Don't miss out.

Introducing our new EC-7R 5x100 forged wheels engineered specifically for your 86/BRZ & ‘11-‘14 WRX. The EC-7R offers performance driving enthusiasts, weekend track warriors, and W2W racers new functional and aesthetic features that build on existing APEX principles: Strong, lightweight, Affordable. These wheels were developed from the ground up in a variety of fitments to suit all types of drivers, and both 17” and 18” diameters will clear the factory Performance Package / TRD Brembo BBK with ease.

This first batch will ship late August, shortly after the deal ends. “Gang Up” to be among the first to receive our forged wheels at the deepest discount we’ll likely ever offer. As a bonus, participants can upgrade to our Polished and Brushed finishes for 50% off their normal premium.



Wheel & tire bundles are available with this group buy. Add tires with your group buy wheel order and get Free tire mounting and balancing by our trusted enthusiast technicians. We use high-end, touchless equipment and inspect every wheel and tire combo thoroughly before they leave our warehouse. Popular Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires & Nitto NT-01 r-compound tires are available.


Thinking about waiting to join until your discount is hit? Don’t do that!
We always recommend getting your pledge in as early as possible. The system in no way rewards watching the deal and joining late. The whole purpose of the pledge system is to allow you to join with confidence and security even within the first minute of the deal accepting payment. You’ll never have to pay more than you’re willing to - even if you’re the first participant. Pledging is risk free!


I want to know more about APEX wheels. Where can I learn more about them?
All APEX wheels are highly regarded and fully verified with official JWL and VIA certifications for every single size and offset. We created these wheels to inspire confidence during track days, race events, and everyday driving. Click here to learn everything about APEX wheels. The quality of information is worth your time!


What’s different about our Group Buy?
Joining Group Buy deals via forums is traditionally a very manual process. Since our deals have grown so large over time, we are working with a new tool to organize these deals in a single, well organized location. This deal is entirely managed on GangUp.com where you can pay, follow, and discuss the deal’s status.


How do I participate?
Visit the official Deal Dashboard on GangUp.com. From there, you can show your interest by joining our feeler list. You’ll receive an email reminder when the deal officially opens. When the deal is live and accepting payments, you can complete checkout and pay for your order from the same page. All product details, member participants, and discussions can be found on that Dashboard.


What if I have some questions?
No problem! You can simply contact us by clicking “Message Vendor” on the deal page or via groupbuys@apexraceparts.com. Please avoid sending us Private Messages as they do not automatically go into our ticketing system and will experience a delay for responses.

Final price will be dependent on which wheel specs you go with, and the participation level of the Group Buy. The discount can be as high as $400 off + free shipping... more if one of the premium finish options is selected.

If (x4) 17x9" wheels are selected, the total would be around $1600 as you mentioned

Would it be possible to check these out / locally pick these up after the group buy? I'm located pretty close to you guys. And any plans to make the sm-10 wheel in a bolt pattern for the 86 platform? My dad has a set on his car and I love the look.

Appreciate your interest. The Group Buy includes free shipping, and since our wheels ship from our larger warehouse in Sacramento (not our main office in Pleasanton), it likely wouldn't be worth the drive for you. Once COVID is behind us you should definitely stop by and say hi. We'll throw you on our driving simulator to see how your lap times stack up

The EC-7R forged line is a big step forward in broadening our offering for the 86/BRZ community, and with plans to offer more fitments in our existing ARC-8 flow formed design later this year, we should have a very well rounded catalog of 86/BRZ 5x100 wheel options.

In due time, if the demand is there for a 3rd design we could absolutely consider the SM0-10. I agree they would look pretty epic on this platform.

How exactly does the discount work? The more people that join increases the discount or decreases it?

Increases. 25+ orders would be 400 off. The nice thing is you can set the minimum discount that you would accept and it’ll just cancel your order if it doesn’t reach that.

@Dave-ROR is absolutely correct. The more pledges that we receive from the community, the deeper the discount. Here is the discount tiers and the respective number of buyers needed to unlock each (also available to view on the Group Buy home page).



As Dave also mentioned, the GangUp system also gives you the ability to pick your own minimum required discount when submitting your pledge. This means that if your desired discount is not reached at the close of the Group Buy, you have no obligation to buy. This eliminates any risk in signing up.

I’m in. Love the ARC8s I have currently. These will be a nice addition to end up covered in pounds of brake dust!

7 days left. Let's make them count!

With seven days left on the clock, now is the time to make your way from the interested list and transition to submitting your official pledge. We've got 29 enthusiasts interested in the deal, which means we have the potential to unlock the maximum discount tier of $400 + free shipping today, but the gang needs everyone to come back and pledge to make it happpen.

Although we advise against it, many people join our deals at the last minute. We’ll see many people rush and pledge in the final few days, which may lead to your preferred fitment or color preference selling out. To ensure you receive a set of our forged wheels in the fitment and finish you desire, take a moment, and submit your official pledge. Pledging is risk-free as your order will not be processed unless we reach your desired discount level.

Did you know?

All APEX Forged wheels feature paintless knurled beads. Knurling on race wheels isn’t new, and it’s becoming a commonly sought-after feature. The problem with knurling is that it varies in design and effectiveness. Some manufacturers may add knurling to their wheels just to check that feature box for marketing purposes, regardless of whether it accomplishes its intended purpose. Maintaining the effectiveness of our knurling was at the forefront of our minds when developing our new line of forged wheels. Click here to learn more.

The Group Buy was a success & wheels are ready to ship!

Thank you again for your participation in this Group Buy, and congratulations on achieving the maximum discount! The good news continues as we have received the first batch of EC-7R forged wheels from our factory, and our staff is already working hard to process your orders. UPS tracking numbers will be emailed to each of you upon fulfillment, and we’re really looking forward to seeing these wheels installed on your vehicle.

If you have any questions regarding your final order, feel free to message us directly.
