One design, many levels of beauty. The SM-10 wheel was created in three increasingly-concave face profiles; The shallowest face provides maximum caliper clearance on narrow applications, while the deepest concave face reduces weight and creates a stunningly aggressive appearance on wide-width applications. All Mustang SM-10 wheels are built with a profile 2 - medium concavity face profile, as that yields optimum results with each of the wheel specifications.More than just a pretty face. The spokes of the SM-10 were designed to be robust where they need to be, and extra lightweight where they should be. Weight is reduced by CNC machining material out from the sides of each spoke. In each concavity profile of our SM-10 design, the I-beam spokes are carefully evaluated from structural aspects to ensure minimal weight, brake clearance, and remarkable strength. By saving weight elsewhere, weve added extra material where it counts. Were beefing up the barrels inner lip on the SM-10 to better handle the repetitive abuse seen on the track. Weve upgraded these wheels to include a knurled bead seat to reduce unwanted tire rotation. This machined knurling throughout the wheels barrel increases friction between the wheel and tire to combat excessive tire slippage and maintain a true balance. Braking deep into a corner, bouncing off berms at the apex, and applying throttle at corner exit all apply enough tire load to cause unwanted tire slippage. Arrive to the track with balanced wheels and tires, leave the track with balanced wheels and tires.
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 SM-10 wheel features a wide open hub center that easily accommodates oversized race lugs and beefy impact sockets. This allows for quick and easy wheel changes and prevents chips and scratches from tools. APEX SM-10 Mustang wheels fit the following OEM Center Cap: FR3Z-1130-C. No rings or adapters here.All APEX SM-10 wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications, and centering rings are never required for any Mustang S197 or S550 application. All 5x114.3mm bolt pattern wheels feature a direct-fit, 70.5mm center bore. 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 SM-10 wheel offers unmatched caliper clearance because wheels shouldnt limit your choice of aftermarket brake kits, and brake kits shouldnt force you to run oversized wheels. We 2D modeled most Big Brake Kits available in Solidworks and tweaked the wheel design of the SM-10 prior to production in order to fit as many kits as possible. Good news GT350 owners, these wheels not only clear your massive Brembo brakes, the barrel to caliper clearance is quite impressive. Original or Aftermarket, it all works. The SM-10 wheel can be used with all OEM and aftermarket mounting hardware with a 60° tapered seat. Lug bolts, wheel locks, and stud conversion kits all work perfectly. The SM-10 wheel 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.
TPMS sensors, which monitor tire pressure, are one piece of technology that can't be compromised. The attention to OEM compatibility on the SM-10 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.These APEX wheels are produced using a manufacturing process known as flow forming. 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 its final shape. This effectively eliminates porosity and aligns the grain structure of the metal, which increases tensile strength.
The end result is a lightweight and extremely strong barrel that equals that of a traditional forged wheel at a fraction of the cost. Many companies promote their wheels as being certified by the VIA when they actually arent. Thats 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.Learn more about false VIA claims. Japans JWL is a commonly followed standard for wheel load ratings. Most manufacturers only meet the minimum while some dont even do that. Learn more about wheels that arent JWL.
It's all in the details. We didnt just redrill and recycle an old wheel. Weve rebirthed it specifically for Mustang use. After many months of Mustang-specific optimizations, weve minimized weight while maximizing strength. Heavy cars need beefy wheels, and that calls for load ratings that are 10% above the JWL/VIAs standard.The result is a lightweight wheel with extra strength in all the right places. Use the SM-10 with confidence on both street and track. Because being faster is just not enough. The SM-10 wheel is available in multiple finishes.
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. Often overlooked, painted or powder coated lug hole seats can cause hardware to loosen or begin the spread of paint chipping to more visible sections. The coating process of the SM-10 leaves lug holes, center bores and mounting pads untouched, which ensures proper fit and torque values.The item "APEX SM-10 Mustang Staggered Wheel Set 19x11.5 19x11" is in sale since Thursday, August 6, 2020.
