For over 10 years, APEX has been the go-to wheel for enthusiasts looking for the perfect balance between strength, weight, and cost. Our ARC-8 and EC-7 designs address the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fitment, and performance. Our newer FL-5 and SM-10 designs provide a step-up in strength and true race wheel features like I-beam spokes and reinforced lips.


➡︎ Perfect fit without spacers

➡︎ Made to work with big brake kits

➡︎ 100% OEM compatibility, no extra hardware required

➡︎ Unbeatable warranty & 50% replacement program

Designs & Finishes


EC-7 - 18" / 19"

Massive brake clearance & a plethora of fitments. The curved spokes of the EC-7’s face beautifully contour around some of the largest brake calipers available. The split "Y" spokes were carefully evaluated from every aspect to ensure light weight and remarkable strength. Available in a single high-clearance face profile to clear stock and aftermarket brake setups with plenty of breathing room.
SM-10 - 18" / 19"

Modern design with reinforced lips and I-beam spokes. The SM-10 spokes were designed to be robust where they need to be, and extra lightweight where they should be. Weight is reduced by CNC machining material out from the sides of each spoke. Knurled beads are added to reduce tire slippage and maintaining a true balance. Available in Profile 3 (deep concavity).

Fit Matters

The right solution for every application. An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel and tire fitment. Without model-specific attention to each wheels specifications, maximum performance is compromised. Each size was selected to find the right balance between a clean fit and the most grip possible. Each design's wide range of widths, offsets, and face profiles result in unique fitments ranging from 10" to 12.5" wide. Each wheel combines these features to meet the different brake caliper, strut, and fender clearance needs of each generation of Corvette. Most vehicle models have options for wheels that range from direct-fit to aggressive for specialty applications. Daily drivers and professional racers don't have the same needs, so why should they be forced to buy the same exact fitment?
100% OEM Compatibility

No need to change your lug nuts, center caps, or TPMS sensors. All APEX Corvette wheels were designed from the start to work with OEM 60º tapered hardware, which means both OEM lug nuts and aftermarket stud kits with the proper lug nut seat type will fit perfectly. All of our 5x120.65 Corvette wheels use a 70.3mm center bore, no hubcentric rings or adapters are necessary. All wheels come with gloss black APEX center caps, but you can also snap-in your factory C6/C7 Corvette caps for a more OEM+ look. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent TPMS sensors, and any standard-sized metal or rubber valve stem.
Brake Clearance

If the spokes or barrel of a wheel can’t clear your brakes, the wheel can’t be used at all. We’ve made sure all of our flow formed wheels clear OEM steel brakes spacer-free when the correct fitments are used. With many applications, even big brake kits will clear spacer-free. The 18" SM-10 wheels even clear the massive OEM carbon ceramic brakes. View our fitment guides to confirm brake clearance, or contact us if you don't see your setup listed.
Weight Optimized
We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis to reinforce high-stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The end result is a flow formed wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.
True VIA - JWL & Beyond

Many companies promote their wheels as being certified by the VIA when they actually aren’t. That’s like using the USDA logo on food without permission. APEX wheels get officially tested and registered by the VIA in Japan, and we have the proof to back it up. Japan’s JWL is a standard for wheel load ratings. Our wheels exceed those ratings. Most manufacturers only meet the minimum, while some even fall below—yet they still claim to be JWL. Always verify load ratings before you buy.

Additional Features

Hub Centric - All APEX Corvette wheels with a 5x120.65mm bolt pattern are purpose built featuring a 70.3mm center bore. No centering rings required.

Center Caps - We don't charge extra for caps and we design our Corvette wheels to be interchangeable with the OEM cap for enthusiasts seeking a clean factory look. All wheels come with our gloss Black APEX caps included.

Hardware - APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and wheel spacers. Wheel locks and stud conversion kits also work perfectly.

TPMS - All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If your vehicle isn’t equipped with sensors or you choose to bypass them for your track/race car, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.

Lifetime Warranty
All our wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty and 1 year finish warranty, so you can be confident in your purchase.
