Introducing our new SM-10 wheels designed specifically for your widebody Corvette. Based on survey results from hundreds of enthusiasts, we saw demand for an affordable, lightweight, and durable track wheel. We believe the SM-10 checks all those boxes. The goal of this deal is to organize enough demand that we can produce these wheels in volume, and extend those savings to everyone who pre-orders. The more members that pledge, the deeper the discount will be.
Extensive laser scanning allowed us to ensure these wheels clear factory big brakes like the Carbon Ceramic Z07/ZR1 package and aftermarket big brakes kits like the AP Racing Radi-Cal, and more! High HP cars running wide wheels need extra strength. Extensive FEA resulted in a light wheel that is still 20% higher than the JWL/VIA standard. We paid attention to the small details too and ensured that factory center caps will fit...
For over 13 years now our mission at APEX has been to provide weekend track warriors and competitive club racers with lightweight, durable wheels at affordable pricing. Our new Corvette SM-10 wheels build upon these principles. Be the first to run our new design on your Corvette by pledging today.
A modern motorsport design crafted using advanced weight saving techniques with a reinforced inner lip and I-beam spokes.
We’ve done countless hours of test-fitting to come up with the perfect chassis-specific widths and offsets. Whether you’re looking for a clean and conservative OEM+ fitment or an all-out aggressive track/race setup, we’ve got you covered. Check out our fitment guides below.
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.
One of the most prominent features of the SM-10 is its advanced "I" beam spoke machining. Any excess material that doesn’t add strength is carved out from the sides of the spokes using a precision CNC ball cutter. This process is often deemed cost-prohibitive by others, but for performance without compromise we believe it's essential.
The inner lip is the most vulnerable part of a wheel because it has no spokes for support. Our Evolution line adds more material to this high-impact area as an extra layer of protection against track berms, potholes, and whatever else the road may throw at you.
We use the deepest concave face profiles we can for every application after factoring in critical clearances such as brake calipers. The SM-10 utilizes 3 unique profiles to make this possible, with the deepest concave face delivering reduced weight and a stunningly aggressive appearance.
Big brakes often require bigger, heavier, more expensive wheels, which aren’t ideal in a performance environment. The SM-10 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.
Whether it’s a day at the track or months of street driving, repeated hard braking can make a tire slip along the bead seat and go out of balance, causing vibration. We’ve added knurled beads to help grip the tire and reduce unwanted slippage.
We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis to reinforce high stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The end result is a wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.
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.
All Evolution line wheels are 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.
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 wheels have been certified, and we provide the registration numbers for every wheel. Protect yourself. Demand registration numbers from manufacturers.Learn More
All APEX 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.Learn More
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. See here for full terms and conditions.Learn More
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. See our full terms and conditions for more details.Learn More
No centering rings required. All Corvette specific 5x120.65mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 70.3mm center bore.
ALL APEX Corvette wheels come with our Gloss Black cap included which is interchangeable with the Corvette C7 OE cap.
The SM-10 wheels can be used with all Corvette OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a 60° tapered seat.
All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. We offer sensors and stems as an option.
