Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray/Z51 Narrowbody Wheel Performance

Narrowbody C7 Corvettes (Stingray, Z51) are a common sight at track days, but most available wheel options are either too narrow or not up to the task of prolonged track use. Plus, 8.5” wide front wheels with 245s aren’t going to cut it with all the grip available from the platform. If you want to extract even more performance from your car, a lightweight chassis specific set of wider wheels and tires will make a world of difference. We created forged wheels such as the Apex EC-7 to increase performance. Find out what fitment is best for your application in our Chevrolet C7 Corvette Narrowbody Wheel & Tire Fitment Guide.

A Brief History of the 2014-2019 Corvette

Our selection of C7 Corvette wheels are ready to bolt on to your Stingray or Z51 to improve performance and give it a custom appearance. America’s longest running sports car, the C6 Corvette was all new in 2014. While the C6 was more of a refresh of the previous generation, the C7 is all new in many ways. A new fully aluminum frame and redesigned interior meant maximum performance and improved comfort when not pushing to the limits.

The legendary LS series motors came to an end as well, replaced by the new LT series featuring direct injection and of course, more power! LT1 powered the Stingray and Z51 cars, pumping out 460 horsepower and 465 lb/ft of torque mated to a new 7 speed Tremec TR-6070. A quick shifting 8 speed automatic was also available. The aftermarket support really has taken the LT series to unreal levels as they’ve proven to be reliable and potent powerhouses.

What Makes it a Good Track Car

Z51 equipped cars present a bit of a hidden gem for track performance within the C7 lineup. While everyone focuses on the Grand Sport or Z06, the Z51 quietly receives the same drivetrain as the Grand Sport, featuring dry sump engine lubrication, while packing around over 100lbs less weight. When outfitted with a set of our C7 Corvette Stingray Z51 wheels, you’ll have a track ready monster on your hands. Often praised as a tremendous dual-purpose proposition, take a look at what MotorTrend thought of their tester: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Long-Term Verdict.

Which Wheels Should I Get?

Check out our Fitment Guides, the most in-depth, authoritative guides for wheel and tire fitments, tailored for your vehicle and how you drive it.

EC-7 Features

The Flow Form Advantage

Flow forming enables us to create high performance wheels without the price premium of forging. It improves the mechanical properties and grain structure of the barrel, increasing its strength and stiffness, which allows us to use less material and reduce weight. Thanks to our superior engineering, our flow formed wheels have a higher load rating than some competitors' forged wheels.

Big Brake Clearance

Big brakes often require bigger, heavier, more expensive wheels, which aren’t ideal in a performance environment. The EC-7 is one of our many wheels which solve this problem. Through comprehensive laser scanning and endless rounds of test-fitting, we’ve created 18” wheels to clear huge brakes that typically require 19” wheels from other manufacturers.

Maximizing Concavity

We use the deepest concave face profiles we can for every application after factoring in critical clearances such as brake calipers. The EC-7 utilizes 3 unique profiles to make this possible, with the deepest concave face delivering reduced weight and a stunningly aggressive appearance.

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

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

Finishing Touches

The EC-7 is finished using a multi-stage liquid paint over a powder coated base coat. This coating process leaves lug holes, center bores and mounting pads untouched, which ensures proper fit and torque values.

JWL and Beyond

All APEX Flow Formed wheels meet or meaningfully exceed JWL load rating requirements. Some manufacturers don't meet the minimum requirements, yet still claim to be compliant. Always compare load ratings to ensure you aren’t sacrificing critical strength for a slightly lighter wheel.

True VIA

The VIA is an independent wheel testing and auditing agency similar to TÜV. Many companies falsely claim their wheels have been certified, and even use the VIA stamp without permission. Our Flow Formed wheels have been certified, and we provide the registration numbers for every wheel. Protect yourself. Demand registration numbers from manufacturers.

Additional Features

Hub Centric

All EC-7 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.


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-7 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.

Accidental Damage

Curb rash or pothole damage on the street? Make an oopsie at the track? We’ve all been there. APEX is proud to offer 50% off replacement wheels, no matter the damage.
