    APEX 19” SM-10 Wheel Group Buy

    Save up to $400 OFF a set plus Free Shipping in the Continental US

    Based on the survey results from hundreds of Mustang enthusiasts, we see there’s demand for our SM-10 design in 19” Mustang specific fitments. Because of the advanced milling featured on these wheels, it’s only possible to bring these to market at an affordable rate if we can sell them in volume. The goal of this deal is to organize enough demand that we can significantly cut back on the price for people who pre-order.

    The Mustang version of our SM-10 has been optimized specifically for this application. These aren’t just redrilled BMW wheels. We’ve thickened spokes and FEA optimized every size for a 10% higher load rating above the JWL/VIA standard. As usual we setup the wheel to work with OEM Mustang center caps, mounting hardware, and TPMS.

    The SM-10 design is equipped with I-beam spokes to offset as much weight as possible from where we’ve beefed up the wheel. It also features a knurled bead along the barrel that helps keep a truer balance by reducing tire slippage on the rim. The SM-10 wheel design offers massive brake clearance, effectively clearing aftermarket big brakes kits as well as popular factory big brakes like the S197 14” and 15” GT500 Brembo kits, S550 Performance Package Brembo kit, and the massive GT350 and GT350R Brembo kits.

    This deal offers the deepest discount we’ve ever offered through a Group Buy. Be the first to run our new design on a Mustang by signing-up today.

    Stay Balanced With a Knurled Bead

    When considering modifications that will enhance your track weekend’s success and safety, the modifications that cannot be seen are ones that often make the largest difference. Everything must work in unison to properly and effectively utilize your chassis, suspension, and wheel & tire combination. Tire slippage upsets this balance, and is most commonly experienced when lateral and longitudinal torque is applied to the tires under loads seen on track. On our Mustang APEX SM-10 wheels, we’ve included a knurled bead seat to reduce unwanted tire rotation

    This machined knurling throughout the wheel’s barrel increases friction between the wheel and tire to combat excessive tire slippage and maintain a true balance. Braking deep into a corner, bouncing off berms at the apex, and applying throttle at corner exit all apply enough tire load to cause unwanted tire slippage. Seeing as the tires are the sole contact patch, maintaining a true tire balance is of utmost importance to ensure your Mustang is operating at its fullest potential.

    On most all track applications, tires are prone to one full rotation or more during a track session. Modern Mustangs create big lateral grip loads, increasing the chance of tire slippage. Combat unwanted tire rotation by utilizing the SM-10’s knurled bead. Arrive at your track weekend with perfectly balanced tires, leave your track weekend with perfectly balanced tires.

    Had an opportunity to meet up with ByronJ over the weekend to test out our latest SM-10 sample wheels on his beautiful GT350. That rear fitment is on point with the 19x11.5" ET56 wrapped in 325/30-19 Michelin PS4S!

    Hi Everyone,

    We recently completed the first series of on car test fitments on this beautiful Race Red GT350. This is the first time we have seen our new 19” Mustang SM-10 wheels physically mounted to a vehicle, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Beyond the new SM-10 wheel design and its impressive features, this photoshoot highlights our new 19x11.5” ET56 rear wheel fitment which are wrapped in 325/30-19 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

    The setting is Sonoma Raceway, an environment both the GT350 and APEX wheels are quite accustomed to.
