BMW F06 F12 F13 M6 Wheel Performance

Despite being a capable platform from the factory, the F06 F12 F13 M6 wheels limit the overall performance of the car by restricting the tire width. Apex Forged and Flow Formed wheels take advantage of the extra width available in the factory wheel wells and allow M6 owners to run wider tires to increase performance. Popular designs like the Forged VS-5RS, EC-7RS, and SM-10RS are perfect for owners looking to shed weight or run larger 20” fitments. Our classic Flow Formed ARC-8, EC-7 and SM-10s also provide a high quality affordable wheel fitment for owners looking to upgrade their M6 without breaking the bank.

About the F06 F12 F13 M6

First launched in 2012, the 3rd generation M6 featured the potent twin-turbo S63 and 7 speed DCT used by the M5. While the DCT was a welcome upgrade over the prior generations single-clutch SMG system, the M6 also featured a very rare 6-speed manual option. The F12 (2 door coupé) and F13 (convertible) models launched first with the F06 (4 door gran coupé) following afterward. In the standard configuration, the S63 output a healthy 560 claimed horsepower while optional competition packages bumped power up to 575 initially and eventually 600hp.

Following the trend of the 5 series, this generation of M6 was more conservatively styled with a less risky design that has aged well over time.

F06 F12 F13 M6 Performance on Track

While not many of the street cars were used on track, it wasn’t for a lack of capability. The F12 M6 served as the basis for BMW Motorsport’s GT3 car from 2016 through 2018 with a relatively unmodified and restricted version of the S63/N63 engine. Despite the size and weight of the large GT platform, this short GT3 program was quite successful with a class win at the Spa 24 hours in 2016 helping to establish the car’s launch. The standard M6s were formidable track cars for drivers willing to manage the weight and power of the platform, but the high costs of maintenance, consumables, and modifications made them a rare sight at most track days. The carbon ceramic brake option, while quite beneficial for weight and braking performance reduces the number of wheel and tire options as well as massively increases the cost of replacement parts.

If you’re considering picking up an M6, be sure you do your research. Repairs can be frequent and costly so finding a good example is critical. Check out PistonHead’s BMW M6 (F06/F12/F13) Buyers Guide to ensure you get the best M6 possible.

EC-7RS Features

10K-Pressure-Apex-wheels.jpg

10K Tons of Pressure

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.

True Motorsport Blanks

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.

Side-Milled Spokes

One of the most significant upgrades to the EC-7RS is the addition of wider and deeper 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.

A Stronger Lightweight Wheel

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?

Load Ratings (lbs)
JWL Load Standard 1521
Typical Forged Wheels 1521
APEX Flow Formed 1550
APEX Forged Sprint™ Line 1600

Weight Optimized

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

Independently Tested

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.

Tougher Inner Lip

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.

Big Brake Clearance

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.

Deeper Concavity

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.

Paintless Knurled Bead

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.

Built for Impact Sockets

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.

Socket Diameter Clearance

Laser-Engraved Specs

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.)

Additional Features

Hub Centric

All EC-7RS wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications. Very few applications require centering rings.

Center Caps

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.

Wheel Hardware

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.

TPMS

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.

EC-7RS Warranty

A Wheel You Can Depend On

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.
