The time has finally come, APEX wheels made specifically for your 5th and 6th Gen Camaro. No hub rings required for a direct bolt-on fit with a 67.1mm center bore. The ARC-8 is our most popular wheel design to date, and they are now optimized for the Camaro featuring a knurled bead to prevent tire slippage under hard load, and massive brake clearance with the ability to clear a variety of aftermarket and OEM big brake kits including the ZL1 Brembo brakes...
We have developed five fitments which can be used in both square and staggered configurations to meet the diverse needs of the Camaro performance driving community. Street, weekend track warrior or wheel to wheel racer, we’ve got you covered.

NOTE: Up to 20mm spacers will be needed up front if using the 19x10.5" ET35 wheel to clear the Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) suspension. Spacer thickness depends on suspension type and how/if negative camber is dialed in.
The right solution for every application
An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel and tire fitment. Without model-specific attention to each wheels specifications, maximum performance is compromised. Each size was selected to find the right balance between a clean fit and the most grip possible. Each wheel combines many great features to meet the different brake caliper, strut, and fender clearance needs of modern Camaros.
One design, many levels of beauty
The ARC-8 wheel is available with the deep concave face that reduces weight and creates a stunningly aggressive appearance on low offset and wide width applications. Concavity is dependent on fitment, and not selected independently.
More than just a pretty face
The spokes of the ARC-8 were designed to be robust where they need to be and extra lightweight where they can be. The split "Y" spokes were carefully evaluated from every aspect to ensure lightweight and remarkable strength. The lack of a deep front lip and spokes that connect directly to the barrel's lip create a rigid wheel with even load distribution. These features help reduce one of the most common concerns with aftermarket wheels — bending. Beauty follows function with this extremely popular design, as it adapts perfectly to both flat and concave versions.
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. The barrel of the ARC-8 wheel offers unmatched caliper clearance because wheels shouldn’t limit your choice of aftermarket brake kits, and brake kits shouldn’t force you to run oversized wheels. We 2D modeled most Big Brake Kits available in Solidworks and tweaked the wheel design of the ARC-8 prior to production in order to fit as many kits as possible.
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 Hub 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 ARC-8 wheel features a wide open hub center that easily accommodates large race lugs. This allows for quick and easy wheel changes and prevents chips and scratches from tools.
No rings or adapters here
This is the first run of our direct fit Camaro wheels, featuring a hub centric 67.1mm bore. No rings, no problems.
A factory fit and finish
We don't reuse one cap design for all of our wheels. This wheel is designed to work with factory 6th Generation Camaro center caps. You can easily replace APEX center caps with OEM pieces for a clean factory look. The ARC-8 wheels will ship with our Gloss Black center cap that mimics the size and shape of a 6th Gen factory center cap.
Original or Aftermarket, it all works
The ARC-8 wheel can be used with all OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a 60° tapered seat and 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.
They all fit
TPMS sensors, which monitor tire pressure, are one piece of technology that can't be compromised. The attention to OEM compatibility on the ARC-8 wheel doesn't end with center caps. All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket equivalent TPMS sensors, and any standard sized metal or rubber valve stem.
Benefits of forging, without the pain
All APEX wheels including the ARC-8 wheel are produced using the Flow-Forming technique. This process significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass. During the manufacturing process, rollers apply high pressure to the inner barrel, compressing the aluminum into it's final shape. This effectively eliminates porosity and aligns the grain structure of the metal which increases tensile strength. The end result of the Flow-Forming process is a light-weight and extremely strong barrel that equals that of a traditional fully forged wheel at a fraction of the cost.
Testing & Certifications
We break a lot of wheels
Computer simulated stress tests are no match for real world testing when designing a light-weight wheel that will see extreme loads. All APEX wheels are crush and load tested to exceed JWL standards and those results are independently tested in Japan by the 3rd party government agency known as the VIA. Countless wheel companies falsely claim they are tested and certified by the VIA, and so they lack the certificates to prove it. We test and certify each and every design, diameter, width, and offset, separately. We publicly list all our VIA registration numbers which are on file with the VIA for confirmation. Don't trust brands that claim testing, but can't provide verifiable registration numbers.
Weight & Strength Optimization
It’s all in the details
We’re taking more time than ever before on this step, revising and iterating our design to reduce weight as much as possible. We’re on this step right now and we’re still shaving off a fraction of a pound at a time. After many months of BMW-specific optimizations, we’ve minimized weight while maximizing strength. 19” wheels typically have less tire protecting them from the imperfections in the road, and that calls for load ratings that are 10% above the JWL/VIA’s standard. The result is a lightweight wheel with extra strength in all the right places. Use the ARC-8 with confidence on both street and track.
Because being faster is just not enough
The ARC-8 wheel is available in multiple finishes, in addition to exclusive finishes available only through select dealers. All APEX wheels are finished using a comprehensive multi-stage liquid paint system over a powder coated base coat. Standard finishes include gloss metallic finishes, and semi-gloss or matte finishes. Hyper finishes include an additional coating of a premium liquid-like metallic silver to create a uniquely bright finish that can only be achieved through misting liquid paint.
Often overlooked, painted or powder coated lug hole seats can cause hardware to loosen or begin the spread of chipping the paint to more visible sections. The ARC-8 wheel's coating process leaves lug holes, center bores and mounting pads unpainted, which ensures proper fit and torque values.
A wheel you can depend on
All APEX wheels are backed by a 2 year structural warranty and a 1 year finish warranty. This warranty guarantees that all APEX wheels will be free from defects in materials, workmanship, and paint finish under normal and reasonable use.
