APEX - FL-5 Wheel Set
The FL-5 is the only APEX design that takes advantage of Dual Flow Forming plus their newest “I” beam machining technique. Still a one-piece wheel, the Dual Flow Forming technology strengthens both inner and outer barrels while maximizing front lip depth for each unique width and offset. Overall strength has been increased over previous designs which ensure durability in both street and track environments. The advanced "I" beam spoke milling further reduces weight and adds a visual feature typically only found on the most expensive race wheels available on the market today.
"I" Beam Spokes
This is the most significant new feature they've added. Weight is reduced by CNC machining material out from the sides of each spoke. It's expensive and avoided by almost every manufacturer, but they've made it affordable through volume production.
By saving weight elsewhere, APEX added extra material where it counts. They beefed up the barrel’s inner lip to better handle the abuse from the street and track.
The FL-5 is their only design with a front lip, and it’s also their only wheel that features the use of rotary forging for both the front and rear barrels. APEX did this because they needed to produce the strongest front lip possible, and they can optimize the depth of the front lip for every unique width and offset when they use this more advanced production method.
Like any APEX wheels, The FL-5 supports all OEM hardware like OEM Roundel center caps, wheel lugs, valve stems, and TPMS sensors. No centering rings are needed either.
The FL-5 uses the same spoke shape and curvature for all sizes. To be as light as possible, each fitment is optimized by machining a front lip that varies from shallow to deep depending on the width and offset of the wheel produced.
We took more time than ever before on this step, revising and iterating our design to reduce weight as much as possible. After countless iterations we removed material from the sides of the spokes in a way that allowed us to increase strength over our previous designs.
