    Apex has an ad on their website eluding to them building forged wheels! It’s a teaser YouTube video about it, but it does nothing to let us know more.

    Oh well, am fine with Flow forming instead of traditional forging.... It would only put the price up.

    We are indeed coming out with a Forged lineup of wheels. This will have no negative effect on our current line of flow formed wheels from a design, cost, or accessibility standpoint so rest easy :)

    As we go through the process of bringing the best wheel to market that we can, naturally there are a few roadblocks we must first overcome which takes time, among other things. For Mustang products, I would anticipate having more information by early/mid summer to be honest.

    The Forged lineup will be a good compliment to our flow formed line for someone looking for more out of their wheels, at a price point that will shock you (in a VERY good way). And of course, these will continue to be backed by our 50% replacement warranty program, which will have more formal information revealed as the Forged wheels draw nearer.

    Man, I can’t wait to see them!! I missed the group buy, and by the time I was ready, Our A/C went out, then we were surprised with our tax bill this year...:mad:

    Early summer would be PERFECT for me budget wise. Is their any chance of getting a glimpse of the wheels before they will go on sale? What about an early bird special price wise? Either way, I’m sure they’ll be a fitting addition to my RR Boss.

    Thanks for all the info, and don’t keep us in suspense!!

    We'll be posting more information (details, images, etc) as we progress on with the project. As per APEX tradition, there will likely be an introductory Group Buy on them too!

    The wheels look fantastic on the 302S. Good match on color choice as well.

    I put Race Silver EC-7s on my personal S197 recently and love it. Had been using Satin Black for the longest time but felt a changeup was needed. Thankfully Race Red works with nearly any color wheel!

    Now there's an old english saying that's been misused for hundreds of years....
    The saying is actually "You can't Eat your cake and have it too".
    Because you can't eat your cake.....and have it too.

    Somewhere around 600 years ago this phrase got turned around and now virtually everybody says it backwards....which if you think about it....makes no sense.

    Fun Fact:
    This is how they found the Unibomber. He used the phrase correctly in his manifesto, and in his letters to his brother, leading the Feds to discover it was him.

    Which brings about the old phrase for those who spends tons on their motors but skip on pads!

    " If you don't have brakes you will eat up your tires too!"
