18x8.5 non-staggered "square" wheel set for F22 228i/230i/M235i/M240i.

This wheel set puts the same size wheels at all four corners of the car - 18x8.5" with a 45mm offset. Having the same size wheels front and rear will allow you to rotate tires to prolong tire life, as well as improve handling by adding more front tire width.

BMWs usually have a staggered wheel set - the fronts are narrower than the rears. This will inherently cause understeer where the front of the car loses grip first. While safest in terms of car control this is a huge downside when using the car on the track or spirited street driving. Having the same size wheels front and rear - also known as a square setup - will deliver more front grip and neutral handling. Having the same size tires all the way around will also allow you to rotate the tires and improve tire wear.

APEX ARC-8 wheels have become one of the most sought after wheels for both track and street, and with good reason. They're light, strong, and specifically designed for BMW fitments. Plus, they just happen to have a classic design that never looks old. The APEX ARC-8 wheel achieves its combination of strength, light weight, and affordability through flow-forming technology. The flow-forming process occurs under extreme pressure, yielding a barrel that is stronger than a standard cast wheel, with certain material properties that are similar to a standard forged wheel. This added barrel strength allows for a reduction in overall wheel weight, while not sacrificing any of the strength you'd expect from durable flow-formed wheels.
