    With an increasing number of Mustang enthusiasts mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles, and wider 18" and 19" Mustang wheels in development, we wanted to create a thread where the community could collectively share photos, fitment information, and any feedback on the wheels in one centralized location. Feel free to just post up pictures, and if you don't mind, please also include the following since many tire sizes are not a direct fitment, and members would like to know the specifics of how to achieve the same fit/look:

    • Wheel Model, Color, Size & Offset
    • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
    • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates or camber bolts
    • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
    • Any other required modification (Spacers, Fender Rolling, Trimming etc.)

    We will kick things off with Josh's personal track machine from Trinity Autosport in SoCal. Josh has ran our EC-7 18x10 square fitment for some time now, and has killed off countless sets of 275 and 285 tires at So Cal tracks in the process :cool: His current setup is listed below:

    2015 S550 Mustang GT 5.0 - Performance Pack

    • APEX Wheels: EC-7 in Race Silver
    • Front: 18x10” ET43 EC-7 with 305/35-18 NT01
    • Rear: 18x10” ET43 EC-7 with 305/35-18 NT01
    • Spacers: 15mm up front with extended stud kit
    • Suspension: Swift lowering springs
    • Camber: F: -2.5 degrees, R: -1.8 degrees

    Come Monday I'll have some pictures, in the interim, here's another local racer's 18x10 sitting over the large performance pack brembo 380mm system on a s197 car.

    Hi Ryan, what's the ETA for the 18x11 wheels? Are the 19x11's still on track for mid July?

    My new set of TPMS sensors are inbound. Below is the part number in case anyone needs a set and this should work for all 2015+ Mustangs and includes metal valve stems.

    TPMS Sensors Ford FR3Z1A189A x 4

    Great news gent, 18x11's are ahead of schedule :cool: 75% of new inventory will be here mid June, and the last 25% of inventory will arrive in late June - all ahead of the original July ETA.

    19" EC-7's are right on target, and we will keep you guys posted in regards to any updates.

    - Ryan

    A fellow enthusiast Kevin shared some photos of his White S197 Mustang 5.0 with his newly mounted EC-7’s. Kevin replaced his 20” wheels for this lightweight track setup, and next on the list is to raise the ride height just a touch.

    • APEX Wheels: 18x10” ET43 EC-7 in Anthracite (square)
    • Tires: 285/35/18 Toyo T1 Sport Tires
    • Suspension: ST XTA Coilovers, Cortex Watts Link & Whiteline Front Sway/Lower Control Arms
    • Brakes: The front and rears are off a 13/14 GT500. 15" rotor in the front with the 6P Brembo brakes. Rears are 13.8" rotors with a CNC caliper relocation bracket.
