"I" Beam Spokes

This is the most significant new feature we’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 we’ve made it affordable through volume production.

Beefier Lips

By saving weight elsewhere, we’ve added extra material where it counts. We beefed up the barrel’s inner lip to better handle the abuse from the street and track.

Dual Flow-Formed

The FL-5 is our only design with a front lip, and it’s also our only wheel that features the use of rotary forging for both the front and rear barrels. We did this because we needed to produce the strongest front lip possible, and we can optimize the depth of the front lip for every unique width and offset when we use this more advanced production method.

Factory Support

Like all our 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.

Variable Lips

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.

The APEX Standard

FEA Optimization

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.

Always Flow Formed

All APEX wheels feature Flow-Formed construction that utilizes rotary forging to produce a strong and lightweight barrel. The FL-5 is no exception.

True JWL & VIA Certification

You won’t find tricky terminology to cover up a lack of testing here. We always do real world crush testing and get real certificates from the Japanese Government again to prove it, just like we’ve always done.
