Fit Matters




The right solution for every application.


The EC-7 wheel includes details specifically implemented to enhance the WRX/STI owners' track day and street performance experience. An optimized car setup begins with the right wheel and tire fitment, and without model-specific attention, maximum performance is compromised. These wheels were developed exclusively for the WRX/STI chassis in a square configuration which promotes a neutral handling experience while allowing drivers to efficiently rotate wheels and tires on all four corners of the car. This dramatically reduces the cost of tires over time. Simply put, our wheel was designed for long-term durability without sacrificing performance and fit, while also adhering to APEX mission of maximizing value. Corner carving & track enthusiasts: this is your wheel.



Massive Brake Clearance


Engineered to clear factory Brembo brake options, as well as a variety of aftermarket BBKs.

The curved spokes of the EC-7 serve many purposes, both in terms of form and function. The split "Y" spokes were carefully evaluated from every aspect to ensure light weight and remarkable strength. Their curved design increases brake calipers in almost every application, allowing the EC-7 to fit where many competitors cannot.

Designing a wheel with spokes that clear a Big Brake Kit, is only half of the battle. The inside of the barrel needs to be large enough to physically fit large calipers and rotors. Be warned; not all wheels are made equal. The barrel of the EC-7 wheel offers unmatched caliper clearance because wheels shouldn't limit your choice of factory or aftermarket big brake kits, and big brake kits shouldn't force you to run heavier, oversized wheels. View our fitment guides to confirm brake clearance, or contact us if you don't see your setup listed.



Weight Optimized




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 flow formed wheel with an ideal balance of strength and weight.



True VIA - JWL & Beyond



Many companies promote their wheels as being certified by the VIA when they actually aren't. That's like using the USDA logo on food without permission. APEX wheels get officially tested and registered by the VIA in Japan, and we have the proof to back it up. Japan's JWL is a standard for wheel load ratings. Our wheels exceed those ratings. Most manufacturers only meet the minimum, while some even fall below; yet they still claim to be JWL. Always verify load ratings before you buy. Learn more about VIA and JWL



Additional Features



Hub Centric - All APEX WRX/STI wheels with a 5x114.3mm bolt pattern are purpose built featuring a 56.1mm center bore. No centering rings required.

Center Caps - We don't charge extra for caps. All wheels come with our gloss Black APEX caps included.

Hardware - APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and wheel spacers. Wheel locks and stud conversion kits also work perfectly.

TPMS - All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If your vehicle isn't equipped with sensors or you choose to bypass them for your track/race car, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.




Unbeatable Support



Warranty: All APEX wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty and 1 year finish warranty, so you can be confident in your purchase. Learn more

Replacement program: Let's face it: Whether you are a weekend warrior practicing at the track, a club racer pushing the limit for a podium finish, or your daily commute involves crater-ridden minefields known as city roads, mistakes happen and parts will be 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 unique APEX360 Wheel Replacement Program offers eligible customers replacement wheels at 50% off our standard prices. Learn more
