APEX Flow Formed Wheels


Over the last few years, APEX has been a great solution for Camaro enthusiasts looking for the perfect balance between strength, weight, and cost. Our ARC-8 design addresses the concerns of more and more racers and track day enthusiasts: long term durability, fitment, and performance. Our newer SM-10 design (coming soon!) provides a step-up in strength and true race wheel features like I-beam spokes and reinforced inner lip.


➡︎ Perfect fit
➡︎ Made to work with big brake kits
➡︎ 100% OEM compatibility, no extra hardware required
➡︎ Unbeatable warranty & 50% replacement program

Designs & Finishes
ARC-8 - 19"

ARC-8: The lightest wheel design we make. Also the most affordable. A deep lug recess allows for an open center for quick wheel changes. Offered in Profile 3, the deep concave profile reduces weight and creates a stunningly aggressive appearance on low offset and wide width applications. Available in 19” diameters.



Fit Matters

The right solution for every application. An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel and tire fitment. Without model-specific attention to each wheels specifications, maximum performance is compromised. Each size was selected to find the right balance between a clean fit and the most grip possible. Each wheel combines many great features to meet the different brake caliper, strut, and fender clearance needs of modern Camaros.



100% OEM Compatibility

No need to change your wheel bolts, center caps, or TPMS sensors. All APEX Camaro wheels were designed from the start to work with OEM 60 tapered hardware, which means both OEM lug nuts and aftermarket stud kits with the proper lug nut seat type will fit perfectly. All of our Camaro wheels use a 67.1mm center bore, no hubcentric rings or adapters are necessary. All wheels come with gloss black APEX center caps, but you can also snap-in OEM 6th Gen caps for a more OEM+ look. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent TPMS sensors, and any standard-sized metal or rubber valve stem.



Brake Clearance


A lot of room in a tight space. Spoke clearance is only half the problem. The barrel construction on a wheel also needs to be big enough to clear the sides of your caliper and rotor. Many aftermarket wheels that have aesthetic compromises in their design may work with smaller stock brakes, or smaller diameter big brake kits, but the larger kits will pose a major problem. The barrel of the ARC-8 wheel offers unmatched caliper clearance because wheels shouldn’t limit your choice of aftermarket brake kits, and brake kits shouldn’t force you to run oversized wheels. We 2D modeled most Big Brake Kits available in Solidworks and tweaked the wheel design of the ARC-8 prior to production in order to fit as many kits as possible, including ZL1 and Z/28 setups.



Weight Optimized


We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis to reinforce high-stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The end result is a flow formed wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.



True VIA - JWL & Beyond

Many companies promote their wheels as being certified by the VIA when they actually aren’t. That’s like using the USDA logo on food without permission. APEX wheels get officially tested and registered by the VIA in Japan, and we have the proof to back it up. Japan’s JWL is a standard for wheel load ratings. Our wheels exceed those ratings. Most manufacturers only meet the minimum, while some even fall below—yet they still claim to be JWL. Always verify load ratings before you buy.

Learn more about VIA and JWL



Additional Features

Hub Centric - All APEX Camaro wheels with a 5x120mm bolt pattern are purpose built featuring a 67.1mm center bore. No centering rings required.

Knurled Bead - We’ve upgraded these wheels to include a knurled bead seat to reduce unwanted tire rotation. This added feature will help keep your balance stay more true throughout the life of the tire.

Center Caps - We don't charge extra for caps and we design our Camaro wheels to be interchangeable with the OE 6th Gen cap for enthusiasts seeking a clean factory look. All wheels come with our gloss Black APEX caps included. We also offer optional gloss red or gloss blue APEX caps.

OEM Hardware - APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and wheel spacers.

TPMS - All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If your vehicle isn’t equipped with sensors or you choose to bypass them for your track/race car, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.


Lifetime Warranty



All our wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty and 1 year finish warranty, so you can be confident in your purchase.



APEX360 Wheel Replacement Program



Let’s face it: Whether you are a weekend warrior practicing at the track, a club racer pushing the limit for a podium finish, or your daily commute involves crater-ridden minefields known as city roads, mistakes happen and parts will be damaged along the way. We are not really a performance company if we sell wheels in a way that penalizes the pursuit of driving at the limit. For this reason, we stepped up and created a program to significantly reduce the costs of properly maintaining a set of wheels by making replacements extremely affordable.

Our unique APEX360 Wheel Replacement Program offers eligible customers replacement wheels at 50% off our standard prices.




Chassis-Specific Fitment Guides


We know what fits. From direct bolt-on to all-out race fitments and everything in between. We've street and track tested extensively to save you the trial-and-error. View our fitment guides.

Hi, we are anticipating the 19x12" wheels to be shipping out to customers in late August/early September.

My set is paid for and do hope they show in a week or two at the latest... Don't want to be last minute before my 10/20 VIR event.
