Product Details

APEX 18” Porsche Wheels

Chassis optimized, strong, lightweight, and affordable. Porsche wheels are finally here!

Fit Matters: The right solution for every application

These concave SM-10 wheels are designed specifically for your Porsche. The SM-10 provides chassis optimized fitments and proper load distribution. If you’re looking for a cost effective lightweight 18” wheel, this is your answer.

 

Face Profile: One design, many levels of beauty

The SM-10 wheel was created in three increasingly-concave face profiles; The shallowest face provides maximum caliper clearance on narrow applications, while the deepest concave face reduces weight and creates a stunningly aggressive appearance on wide-width applications.

 

"I" Beam Spokes: More than just a pretty face

The spokes of the SM-10 were designed to be robust where they need to be, and extra lightweight where they should be. Weight is reduced by CNC machining material out from the sides of each spoke. It’s expensive and avoided by almost every manufacturer, but affordable with volume. In each concavity profile of our SM-10 design, the I-beam spokes are carefully evaluated from structural aspects to ensure minimal weight, brake clearance, and remarkable strength.

 

Beefier Lip: Ready for more abuse

By saving weight elsewhere, we’ve added extra material where it counts. We’re beefing up the barrel’s inner lip on the SM-10 to better handle the repetitive abuse seen on the track.

 

Knurled Bead: Keep a true balance

We’ve upgraded these wheels to include a knurled bead seat to reduce unwanted tire rotation. This added feature will help keep your balance stay more true throughout the life of the tire.

 

Open Center: Easy to access lugs

Race wheels can't just be light, they need to function in a high performance environment. Unlike the narrow lug recesses of most other wheels, the SM-10 wheel features a wide open hub center that easily accommodates oversized race lugs and beefy impact sockets. This allows for quick and easy wheel changes and prevents chips and scratches from tools.

 

Hub Centric: No rings or adapters here

All APEX wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications, and centering rings are never required for any Porsche application. All 5x130mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 71.6mm center bore.

 

Center Cap: A factory fit and finish

We don't reuse one cap design for all of our wheels. Every SM-10 wheel is designed to work with factory center caps. You can easily replace APEX center caps with OEM Porsche crest caps for a clean factory look. The SM-10 wheels will ship with our Gloss Black center cap that mimics the size and shape of a Porsche factory center cap.

 

Brake Clearance: A lot of room in a tight space

Spoke clearance is only half the problem. The barrel construction on a wheel also needs to be big enough to clear the sides of your caliper and rotor. Many aftermarket wheels that have aesthetic compromises in their design may work with smaller stock brakes, or smaller diameter big brake kits, but the larger kits will pose a major problem. Targeted at the serious performance-minded owner, 18” SM-10 wheels clear up to 380mm rotor, 6-piston brake kits including the factory PCCB’s.

 

Wheel Hardware: Original or Aftermarket, it all works

The SM-10 Porsche wheel can be used with all OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a ball seat lug recess. Lug bolts, wheel locks, and stud conversion kits all work perfectly. The SM-10 wheel also accepts wheel spacers without issue. The shallow rear chamfer allows the wheel to remain hub centric even when 5mm flat spacers are used. The chamfer is deep enough to clear the chamfered lip found on some aftermarket spacers that would typically cause improper seating of the wheel and, therefore, wheel vibration.

 

TPMS: They all fit

TPMS sensors, which monitor tire pressure, are one piece of technology that can't be compromised. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent Porsche/HUF TPMS sensors, and any standard sized metal or rubber valve stem. Use the chart below to help select the correct TPMS for your vehicle.
