    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.

    Appreciate your interest! As a motorsport oriented company we will definitely be releasing the new SM-10 design in an 18" diameter, however since we wanted to expand on our fitment offering to encompass more sizes for the GT350 and GT350R, we decided to launch the 19" diameter first.

    Those look tasty and it's great that you're offering the R spec sizing as well. Which wheel cap fits these wheels?

    I'm looking forward to these being available in 19" for Porsche's.

    Hey Rick, moving forward all Mustang wheels will accept the correct-era Ford center cap.

    Great, I've been waiting for this style to be available! Are the "OEM TPMS sensors" the metal ones for the GT350? My understanding is that the regular S550s use plastic valve stems and the GT350s use metal ones.

    All of the TPMS we sell on the site come with the metal valve stems. They are certainly a much better choice compared to the plastic ones!

    let me ask you a question Cory.
    Do you guys plan to go 10.5 all around? 10.5 can fit a 305 tire with less adjustment than a 11 in the front.
    Do you plan any 10.5 in the future?
    Thank you

    Alex

    No plans at this time for a 10.5". You would still need to run extended studs and a spacer, and based on feedback we received, there wasn't much of a point to making them with the 11" in our catalog. In addition, every 305 section tire I can think of would benefit from an 11" wide wheel compared to a 10.5". The possibility of a limited production group buy is always on the table should we get enough interest, however.

    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

    [​IMG]

    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.

    A track focused Mustang is not complete without a track proven wheel and tire setup. Submit your pledge early to lock in your desired finishes, and stay tuned for more updates as we draw nearer to the deadline.

    I've been eyeballing the EC-7s for quite some time but decided to bite on these in 19x11!

    I have the RTR mesh wheel in black 19x9.5 ET33 (wet tires), and I have HRE FF15 19x10 ET40 wheels in silver (RE71-R). I don't know whether it's the color or style, but I'm on the list for the Apex SM10 group buy (slicks). I like the linear spokes. To each his own.

    Both mesh and linear spokes are very classic designs, can't go wrong with either in my opinion. There will be another EC-7 group buy early next year for those who prefer that style!
