Despite being the most powerful and arguably capable M4 out of the box, the G82 Coupe and G83 convertible wheels were an interesting selection of double-staggered fitments from the factory. For owners looking to maximize the overall performance of their new M4 or simply move away from the overly complex factory wheel setup, lightweight performance wheels are an excellent initial upgrade. We created forged wheels like the VS-5RS and SM-10RS to give owners xDrive and RWD compatible fitments that also increase performance. Find out what fitment suits your driving style on our BMW G82 G83 M4 Wheel and Tire Fitment Guide.
Launched alongside the G80 M3, the G82 M4 was first sold in the 2021 model year in both base and competition trim. Powering the new M4 is the S58 twin turbo inline six making 473 horsepower in base trim and 503hp in the competition. Just like the G80 M3, the M4 gets a traditional 6 speed manual transmission on the base variant and the ZF 8 speed automatic for the competition. While some do miss the race inspired dual clutch transmission from the outgoing model, the ZF 8 speed torque converter automatic makes for smoother shifts around town, paired with extremely fast shifting at full tilt.
In late 2022, BMW announced a limited production run of an M4 CSL model limited to just 1,000 units. This limited production model is focused around shaving weight (around 200lbs) and boosts power up to 543hp!
Just like its 4 door counterpart, the G82 and G83 M4 is a remarkably capable machine. Depending on your driving style, both the RWD and X-Drive competition spec vehicles will set impressive lap times without being too unwieldy. That balanced and easy-to-drive nature BMW M cars are known for still lives on thanks to impressive chassis tuning and state-of-the-art traction control systems.
While it’s still quite early in the G82 M4’s lifespan, this model does appear to be reliable both on and off the road course. There’s also a wide variety of aftermarket modifications available to make the perfect dual duty car or a full blown track weapon. When it comes to G82 G83 M4 Wheels, APEX has got you covered! We offer both direct fit and track ready options in our Forged Sprint Line category to give the added grip the S58 is begging for.

Our new forgings weigh as much as 120 pounds before machining. To form such a thick blank we require special equipment capable of 10,000 metric tons of pressure. This extreme pressure increases the strength of the aluminum by eliminating porosity and improving the grain structure.
Many companies use 3rd-party blanks intended for non-motorsport wheels which can severely limit sizes, concavity, spoke design, and critical brake clearance. We designed our very own blank profiles from scratch to give us total control over the final product.
To be as light as possible the VS-5RS features extra-deep, side-milled spokes. Any excess material that doesn’t add strength is carved out using a precision CNC ball cutter. Side-milling is often deemed cost-prohibitive by others, but for true performance without compromise we believe it's essential.
Our forged Sprint™ wheels are lightweight without the strength compromises found on typical lightweight wheels. First, we carved out as much material as possible, then we purposefully added one pound back to reinforce critical areas, creating a stronger inner lip and a higher load rating.² What’s the point of a lightweight wheel if it’s fragile?
We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to reinforce high-stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The result is a wheel that is exceptionally light without the strength compromises found on typical lightweight wheels.²
We don't rely solely on computer simulations or unverifiable in-house testing. We believe independent testing is critical to protect consumers in this unregulated industry. We chose STL, an independent lab in Ohio, to test our Sprint™ wheels far above JWL standards, including increases in testing duration, impact drop height, and total load.
Introducing the Sprint™ spec inner lip, with a unique channel profile that makes it even stronger than our previous designs. So even though our Sprint™ wheels are pounds lighter than comparable flow formed wheels, the inner lip is stronger.

From day one, APEX has been on a mission to build wheels that clear big brakes. Our new forged wheels are the product of everything we’ve developed over the past 10+ years, including an innovative high-clearance barrel design and vehicle-specific spoke profiles.
Our new forgings were redesigned to create extra deep, concave spoke profiles. Their new shape allows us to make any profile, from flat to deep and everything in between. Each one is optimized for a specific application using 3D laser scans of factory and aftermarket brake kits.
Whether it's a day at the track or months of street driving, repeated hard braking and acceleration can make a tire slip along the bead seat and go out of balance, causing vibration. Knurled beads help, but are less effective when painted over. Our forged line features unpainted knurled beads that stay sharp and maximize grip.
Track wheels need track tools. Don’t settle for wheels that require undersized tuner lugs or thin walled sockets. All APEX wheels accommodate over-sized race lugs and impact sockets to make swapping wheels lightning fast.

As track enthusiasts ourselves, we know how frustrating it is to try to locate and decipher wheel specs that have been hastily hammered into the rim or become unreadable over time. With our new Sprint™ wheels, we chose to invest a little extra and laser-engrave the specs on the barrel, in plain sight, making them easy to find and read. (You’re welcome.)
All VS-5RS wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications. Very few applications require centering rings.
All APEX wheels come with our gloss black cap included that is interchangeable with the OE cap. We also offer additional colors for select fitments.
APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and most wheel spacers. Wheel locks and stud conversion kits also work perfectly.
All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If you don’t have sensors, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.
All Apex Wheels come with a
lifetime structural warranty against defects in
workmanship and materials, plus a 1 year finish warranty.
Exchanges are fast, easy, and hassle-free.
