The E6X Generation of BMW M Chassis require wheels with lower offsets than most 5x120 BMW chassis. Spacers are required with most APEX fitments available for this generation of M cars.
Easy upgrades for street-driven cars
These bolt-on wheel fitments are ideal for enthusiasts enjoying their car day-to-day on the street, and they are typically paired with all-season or performance-oriented summer tires. Just bolt-on and enjoy!
While these wheel fitments can be used for track days and AutoX, performance will be left on the table. Drivers that prioritize performance should review our Performance Street & Track and/or Hardcore Track & Race sections below.
Wider fitments for enhanced performance
Whether you enjoy spirited street driving or you are a weekend track warrior chasing lap times, these wheel & tire configurations are ideal for enthusiasts looking for a more dramatic improvement in performance and they are typically paired with performance-oriented summer tires or track-oriented R-compounds.
The suspension type, alignment settings, and tire brand/size can be changed accordingly to set the car up for either environment. While many of these wheel fitments can be run with the factory alignment, if you plan to track the car we highly recommended dialing in negative camber to improve handling and to extract the most performance and longevity out of your tires. See fitment notes under each tire configuration below to see if modifications are required.
Recommended for enthusiasts that want to mitigate understeer and rotate tires front & rear for extended life. Square configurations may compromise rear-end grip when compared to staggered configurations.
Recommended for enthusiasts that prioritize rear-end grip/traction. Wheels and tires cannot be rotated front to rear and large staggers may induce understeer.
Each of our wheel designs is available in two or three different levels of concavity, which we call Profiles. The Profile is dictated by the width and offset, meaning wide lower-offset wheels will have more concavity, while narrow higher-offset wheels will have less concavity.
If you’re using coilovers, see the image below to identify which type of coilover spring you have, as it may effect your wheel fitment.
