► APEX | SM-10 Camaro Wheel Group Buy



APEX 19" SM-10 Lightweight Track Wheels

This Group Buy has now ended, thank you to everyone who participated!








===> View Full Image Gallery <===




Available Sizes

18x11” ET7 - ~23.7lbs - Front only
18x11” ET35 - ~ 22.3lbs - Front with 26mm spacer, or direct fit rear
18x12” ET41 - ~23.5lbs - Rear only

19x10” ET20 - ~24lbs - Front or Rear
19x11” ET11 - 25.6lbs - Front only
19x11” ET35 - ~24.5lbs - Front with 26mm spacer, or direct fit rear
19x12” ET41 - 25.6lbs - Rear only

Brake Clearance - Careful fitment testing and 3D laser scans of the factory brakes were conducted to ensure both our 18” and 19” wheels clear the ZL1 1LE and 5th Gen Z/28 brake kits, as well as popular aftermarket brakes like the AP Racing by Essex 390mm Radi-CAL BBK.

Suspension Clearance - Cars equipped with MRC suspension will need to clearance the spindle to run 18” wheels up front. This common modification causes no structural integrity issues and is the only way to fit wide 18” wheels/tires onto the car. Non-MRC models may need slightly clearancing depending on camber settings and tire width.

Get to know our APEX360* Program

Our Group Buys offer a tremendous opportunity to purchase track-proven wheels at a terrific price point. That value only gets better once you factor in our APEX360* Program!

Because wheel warranties do not cover accidents or damage caused by misuse, wheels can quickly become an expensive consumable if you beat them up at the track or get unlucky on the street. The norm in the wheel industry is for customers to absorb 100% of all replacement costs. However, that ideology is cold and transactional instead of supportive and considerate of the overall experience enthusiasts go through during the ownership of their wheels.

Let’s face it: Whether you are a weekend warrior practicing at the track, or a club racer pushing the limit for a podium finish, mistakes happen, and parts can get damaged along the way. We are not really a performance company if we sell wheels in a way that penalizes the pursuit of driving at the limit. For this reason, we stepped up and created a program to significantly reduce the costs of properly maintaining a set of wheels by making replacements extremely affordable.



Our goal was to make replacing a damaged wheel with a brand-new one much more appealing than ignoring the problem or performing any questionable and compromising repairs. This program will also help keep damaged wheels from being passed on to unsuspecting enthusiasts via the secondhand market.

Discounted replacements are ideal for customers who accidentally damage their wheels with curb rash, bends or dings from potholes, berms, road debris, and off-track excursions. Complete destruction of a wheel from serious accidents (or Mustangs running into things) also qualify, including tire wall or barrier impacts, contact with other racers, or any accidents resulting in a total loss.

All pledged members that participate in this Group Buy would be eligible for this replacement program. For more details, be sure to visit our website here.

Happy tracking from The APEX Team!

Hi Everybody,

We wanted to highlight a few features of these awesome SM-10 wheels that really set it apart from the crowd.

Knurled Bead - 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.



I Beam Spokes - 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.



Inner Lip - The inner lip is the most vulnerable part of a wheel because it has no spokes for support. Our SM-10 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.

Hi Everybody,

As we head into the final weekend of the Group Buy, I wanted to highlight a couple advantages our 18” wheels offer to track enthusiasts. The 5th and 6th Generation Camaros come with pretty large brakes from the factory, especially on the track-oriented 1LE models. We designed our 18” wheels specifically to clear every factory setup. Want to run take-off race tires on your carbon brake equipped Z/28 or ZL1 1LE? We’ve got you covered!

Another benefit to 18” wheels is the reduced running cost. A couple years ago we published an article that still holds true today, found HERE. It outlines the pros and cons of 18” & 19” wheels. While this article was catered towards our Mustang customers, the exact same principles apply to Camaro enthusiasts as well.

Reminder for customers wanting to run 18” wheels on their cars equipped with Magnetic Ride Control suspension, you must grind a small part of the front strut away for proper barrel clearance. This safe, often performed modification is the only way to fit 18” wheels up front. Please see our fitment guides for more information.
