With an increasing number of Porsche enthusiasts mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles for street, track and race use, we see many photographs of APEX wheels shared throughout the forum and social media. The purpose of this thread is to compile on-car photography of different APEX wheel fitments on various Porsche chassis while providing the community with detailed information surrounding wheel and tire fitment, alignment settings, brake and suspension clearances and more.

Please feel free to ask questions along the way, we have experts ready to provide technical support. You can find more information about our 18" Porsche SM-10 wheels HERE.

Other readers would greatly appreciate if you included the following information to accompany your photos:
.
  • APEX Wheel Model, Finish, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates if applicable
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Spacers, fender rolling, etc.)

I do not believe we have any 718 photos just yet, but they should start to surface in the coming weeks. I know there were a few 718 owners who purchased our wheels during the initial release. We'll certainly continue to post images as we receive them, and we hope the community does the same.

6 piston 380mm PCCB's under an 18" wheel? No problem! We can't get enough of this GT3 RS shoot which took place in our backyard at Sonoma Raceway. Some of you may have come across these photos in the 997 GT3 subsection.

Eager to see your photo's guys and gals. Don't be shy!

Here is a very clean 2003 996 Porsche Turbo running APEX SM-10 wheels. We have multiple staggered fitments available for the 996 and 997 Turbo chassis, and after consulting with our customer in regards to his plans for the car and identifying how he enjoys it, we landed on the following staggered wheel fitment. You can find more details and photos of Rajeev's 996 turbo here.

APEX SM-10 Wheels in Anthracite
Front: 18x8.5" ET42
Rear: 18x11" ET36

Suspension Modifications:
H&R Sport Springs
Bilstein B8 Shocks

Here's my '01 Turbo...

  • Wheels are Apex SM-10 in Anthracite
  • Front: 18x9” ET46 with Azenis RT615K+ in 245/40-18
  • Rear: 18x12” ET45 with Azenis RT615K+ in 315/30-18
  • H&R sport springs, Bilstein B8.
  • No fender modifications needed (no lip roll, no liner mods)
  • Stock suspension components (other than springs/shocks), no camber plates, no modified LCA's)
  • No issues with clearance.
Very new fitment, but so far super happy with the look, fit, and performance of the new setup.

Porsche 996TT featuring 18" SM-10 Wheels in Anthracite

Front: 18×9” ET46 with 255/35-18 Toyo R888 Tires
Rear: 18×12” ET45 with 315/30-18 Toyo R888 Tires

We have had many customers including member pfbz above install our 18x9" front /18x12" rear staggered SM-10 wheel configuration successfully without any modifications to the car, however, they typically limited the width of their front tire to a 245 to prevent rubbing under suspension compression. Since the goal for this car was to fully leverage the wider 9" front wheels (in comparison to our 18x8.5" ET42 "standard" front wheel option) by maximizing front tire width and mitigating understeer, 255/35-18 R888 tires were installed. These r-compound tires run wider than your average street tires, therefore, negative camber was dialed in through the Bilstein PSS10 with RSS components to eliminate rubbing and ensure proper utilization of the tires. The result is a flush staggered fitment that maximizes grip/performance front and rear, tailor-made for the 996 turbo.

I've used your wheels on my BMW M cars and have been very happy with them. Excited that these are now available for P-Cars!

Any group buys coming up soon?

Appreciate it, always great to hear from BMW enthusiasts familiar with our product. We actually just held an18" SM-10 Group Buy for the Porsche community last month, therefore we do not have another planned in the near future.
