18x11" ET52 APEX SM-10 Mustang Wheel
The right solution for every application
The SM-10 wheel includes details specifically implemented to enhance the Mustang 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 S197 and S550 chassis and will work in either square or staggered configurations. GT350s applications require 19" wheels.
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.
"I" Beam Spokes
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. It’s expensive and avoided by almost every manufacturer, but affordable with volume. 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.
Ready for more abuse
By saving weight elsewhere, we’ve added extra material where it counts. We’re beefing up the barrel’s inner lip on the SM-10 to better handle the repetitive abuse seen on the track.
Keep a true balance
We’ve upgraded these wheels to include a knurled bead seat to reduce unwanted tire rotation. This machined knurling throughout the wheel’s 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.
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.
