    Hey Apex, how do I find out, or how do you determine the number of commitments needed for each discount level? Is this posted somewhere, and I can't locate it. There are 16 commitments, are we at $0, $100, $200, $300, or $400 dollars discount level? This is my 2nd group buy ever, and the last one was so long ago I had to put my order into a leather bag on horseback.

    Oh yeah, that'll do :)

    Hey Boone,

    Right now we have a lot of interested but only 16 pledged as you mentioned. The info is not posted anywhere but I can access it to review. Basically, we have only achieved the base free shipping tier. Nobody has opted for the $100 discount level, needing 10 more to reach that discount.

    If you click on the info icon just to the side where it says $400 off + Free Shipping, located on the group buy page, it will show the current discount tier. Since no tier has been reached, it is blank.

    This brings up a great topic, and hopefully I can clear up a few questions people may have. We have a large number of people interested in this deal. There is ZERO risk to submit your pledge, as you get to choose the discount tier that you will participate in. For example, if you will only participate if there is a $400 discount but we only reach enough pledges to get a $300 discount, your pledge gets canceled and the deposit refunded. Another benefit to pledging early is to lock in your size and color choices. If everyone selects Anthracite, we cannot make every wheel in that finish. That's why it's also important to select all 3 finishes, in the order that you prefer.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

    - Cory

    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!

    We need more people to commit! How often to "interested" people convert to "committed" people?

    It varies per group buy. Generally speaking, a 40-50% conversion rate is good. It's not unusual to see such a disparity between pledges and interested at this point. More will put their deposits down as we inch nearer to the deadline.

    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.

    We have just over a month remaining on this deal, don’t wait until the last minute to submit your pledges. Pledging early locks in your desired color choice and it means your wheels are the first to ship out once we receive them. There is ZERO RISK to submit your pledge now! If you have any questions feel free to message us here or send an email to expert@apexraceparts.com

    Hey Apex,

    Apologies if I missed it somewhere but did you guys get some weight measurements for the samples before you mounted them?

    Yes we did, the 19x10" ET40 came in at 23.5 lbs and the 19x11.5" ET56 was 24.8 lbs.

    Hello Everyone,

    A quick update as we near the last 20 days of this Group Buy. We have scheduled test fitment and photography sessions for two customer cars which will take place early next week.

    For all our S197 enthusiasts out there, we are excited to get our first look at SM-10’s mounted on a track prepped S197 chassis. This shoot will feature our popular 19x10” ET40 rotatable square fitment, with 285/35-19 Michelin PS4S tires. To add to our arsenal of GT350 photography, the second test fitment and photoshoot will include a Ruby Red GT350 featuring our 19x11” ET26 front and 19x11.5” ET56 rear staggered fitment, also wrapped in Michelin PS4S tires. We look forward to updating you next week with the results.

    With just three weeks remaining in the Group Buy, now is the time to convert your interest into an official pledge. We are thankful for the support you all have shown so far, but we need everyone’s participation to reach the maximum discount tier.

    Hello Everyone,

    We are excited to release photos of the first S197 Mustang running our new 19” SM-10 wheels, featuring a very balanced rotatable square fitment with 19x10” ET40 wheels wrapped in 285/35-19 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. This track prepped Mustang is sitting pretty along the Vancouver Waterfront, highlighting the SM-10’s versatility to perform well at the track and on the street.

    Next up, our second GT350 test fitment courtesy of this lovely Ruby Red machine featuring our 19x11” ET26 and 19x11.5” ET56 staggered OEM “R Spec” wheels. This fitment looks right at home on the standard Shelby and should provide owners with increased grip, performance and ample caliper clearance.

    Get into my discount level and I'll show you the first S197 Mustang with SM-10 wheel and DH slicks. I hate feeling excited about something when I have no control of whether the deal will go down. It's like getting a date with Miss America and wondering if she'll see a picture of you before date night.

    Hello Everybody,

    This deal has gone well so far, but with only 8 days remaining, it’s time for many of you to come back to finish pledging. With just a few more pledges we can hit the maximum discount tier of $400 off + free shipping*. As of today, there are 95 people interested in the deal, which is more than double the number of people needed to reach the best discount.

    Production has already started, and there will be limited quantities of each size and finish for this initial production batch. We allocate wheels in the order that pledges are submitted, therefore, submitting your pledge as early as possible greatly increases your chances of avoiding a sold-out situation for your selected size or finish.

    We’ve run a lot of successful Group Buy’s and momentum is everything. The more people that officially pledge early on, the quicker we can unlock the maximum discount tier. There is no advantage in waiting until the last minute to see what happens - a common misconception that ultimately limits the deal's potential. With the ability to pick your own required discount, there is ZERO risk to submitting a pledge early. If the deal does not reach your required discount tier, your order is simply canceled.

    If you haven’t pledged because you need help with something, please reach out to us. We’re here to answer any question you may have from recommended tires to complimentary suspension components. We want to make sure these wheels play nice with all your other performance parts.

    Agreed! We are now at 30 pledged, just 10 more and EVERYONE is getting $400 off plus free shipping. At this point there really is no reason not to submit your pledge if you're wanting $400 off.

    Come for the wheels, stay for the dealz :)

    Hello Everyone,

    A lot of enthusiasts have asked us about the new features and details of the SM-10 wheel design, and while images are helpful, they simply do not do the wheel justice. We took things a step further by creating the following video:

    We are also excited to announce that we will be performing one more photoshoot this coming weekend, courtesy of a high powered GT500. Stay tuned for the results featured in next weeks update.

    Keep in mind, there are only four days remaining on the clock. We are just a handful of pledges away from unlocking the max discount tier of $400 off + free shipping*, but we need everyone to pledge now to make this happen. If you have any questions or would like help with making a decision, please feel free to reach out to us. Our staff of Product Experts is here to ensure that your new wheel & tire setup meets your goals and exceeds your expectations.

    This Group Buy closes at midnight, October 16th (PDT)
