With an increasing number of Porsche enthusiasts mounting APEX wheels on their vehicles for street, track and race use, we see many photographs of APEX wheels shared throughout the forum and social media. The purpose of this thread is to compile on-car photography of different APEX wheel fitments on various Porsche chassis while providing the community with detailed information surrounding wheel and tire fitment, alignment settings, brake and suspension clearances and more.

Please feel free to ask questions along the way, we have experts ready to provide technical support. You can find more information about our 18" Porsche SM-10 wheels HERE.

As some of you may know, At APEX we have provided chassis specific wheel solutions for BMW enthusiasts and racers for over 10 years now. Since there are BMW enthusiasts present here at 6SO, we will open the thread up to BMW chassis as well.

Other readers would greatly appreciate if you included the following information to accompany your photos:
.
  • APEX Wheel Model, Finish, Size & Offset
  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates if applicable
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber
  • Any other required modification (Spacers, fender rolling, etc.)

Eager to see your photo's guys and gals. Don't be shy!

Here is a very clean 2003 996 Porsche Turbo running APEX SM-10 wheels. We have multiple staggered fitments available for the 996 and 997 Turbo chassis, and after consulting with our customer in regards to his plans for the car and identifying how he enjoys it, we landed on the following staggered wheel fitment. You can find more details and photos of Rajeev's 996 turbo here.

Rear: 18x11" ET36

Porsche 996TT featuring 18" SM-10 Wheels in Anthracite

Front: 189” ET46 with 255/35-18 Toyo R888 Tires
Rear: 1812” ET45 with 315/30-18 Toyo R888 Tires

We have had many customers including member pfbz above install our 18x9" front /18x12" rear staggered SM-10 wheel configuration successfully without any modifications to the car, however, they typically limited the width of their front tire to a 245 to prevent rubbing under suspension compression. Since the goal for this car was to fully leverage the wider 9" front wheels (in comparison to our 18x8.5" ET42 "standard" front wheel option) by maximizing front tire width and mitigating understeer, 255/35-18 R888 tires were installed. These r-compound tires run wider than your average street tires, therefore, negative camber was dialed in through the Bilstein PSS10 with RSS components to eliminate rubbing and ensure proper utilization of the tires. The result is a flush staggered fitment that maximizes grip/performance front and rear, tailor-made for the 996 turbo.

6 piston 380mm PCCB's under an 18" wheel? No problem! We can't get enough of this GT3 RS shoot which took place in our backyard at Sonoma Raceway. Note that we've got just under 10 hours left for enthusiasts to join in on the community Group Buy we are currently running. The max discount tier was unlocked, so major savings on the table for anyone looking to upgrade wheels before the upcoming season.

This has got to be one of the cleanest dual duty 996's we've seen in a while, and we are pretty pumped that the owner incorporated our SM-10 wheels into his build. Let us know what you think!

This 997.1 Turbo owner took a set of our wide Satin Black SM-10 wheels and had a custom pinstripe done in green to match the theme of his build. It is really cool to see the different ways car enthusiasts individualize their builds, and we look forward to seeing more pics of this car as it evolves.
