APEX New Wheel Color Group Buy
Finally. New ARC-8 finishes
Over 600 of you took our survey and voted on what we should produce. We want to make the top 3 finishes a reality in our most popular design and sizes. Those were Bronze, Satin Anthracite and Gold.
We’re making this as easy as possible, so we only need 5 participants per size and finish to produce any of these new finishes.
These will go into production in February and will arrive at the beginning of May 2017.
Need wheels now?
Then this isn’t the Group Buy for you. Check out our 18” ARC-8 deal for existing colors here. They aren’t a new color, but you can have them in November.
What about other sizes/designs?
This deal is limited to our concave 18” ARC-8 sizes in the 3 proposed finishes. Deals for other sizes and designs will be offered in the future.
Vote for what else you want by taking the survey if you haven’t already.
We always recommend getting your pledge in as early as possible. This creates momentum, increases your chances of reaching the top discount tiers, and gives you priority for size and finish availability since we fulfill orders in chronological order. This system in no way rewards watching the deal and joining late. The whole purpose of the pledge format is to allow you to join with confidence and security even within the first minute of the deal accepting payment.
What’s so cool about that?
Now we can automatically allocate units to fulfill your backup finish choice if they’re available and your first choice is not.
Sounds interesting. Tell me more.
Previously, we’d call you 1-2 days after the deal ended if you have a backorder. By then we’ve already fulfilled every other available order, even if they ordered after you. By the time you confirm an alternate finish, we’re usually out of stock and you’re left waiting for new stock to come in. This new format gives you priority rights to available inventory so that if you’re one of the first to checkout, you get first dibs on availability.
What about us procrastinators?
Don’t do that! We always recommend getting your pledge in as early as possible. The system in no way rewards watching the deal and joining late. The whole purpose of the pledge system is to allow you to join with confidence and security even within the first minute of the deal accepting payment.
How will backorders be managed?
We have a good amount of stock on hand, in addition to a wave of replenishment units coming in. If your set is backordered, you may experience a 1-3 week delay. We’ll promptly provide you with an ETA if you’re affected, and will present you with the opportunity to change to another available size or finish should you desire. If you can’t wait, you’re welcome to cancel your order.
We can’t calculate availability until after the deal closes. If you need wheels for a race weekend, Group Buys might not be for you. We recommend buying them from guaranteed stock on our regular site.

What’s different about our Group Buy?
Joining Group Buy deals via forums is traditionally a very manual process. Since our deals have grown so large over time, we are working with a new tool to organize these deals in a single, well organized location. This deal is entirely managed on GroupBuyParts.com where you can pay, follow, and even discuss the deal’s status.
How do I participate?
Visit the official Deal Dashboard on GroupBuyParts.com. From there, you can show your interest by joining our feeler list. You’ll receive an email reminder when the deal officially opens. When the deal is live and accepting payments, you can complete checkout and pay for your order from the same page. All product details, member participants, and discussions can be found on that Dashboard.
What if I have some questions?
No problem! Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please avoid sending us Private Messages as they do not automatically go into our ticketing system and will experience a delay for responses.

We're adding an extra 30 days to the feeler phase. If the payment phase went live on December 6th as planned, this deal would certainly fail.
Although we have 46 people interested, most of you are signed up to only participate if the max discount is reached. The discounts people demand varies from deal to deal, and this one doesn't have what's needed to reach any with just 46 people. See the graph below.
An extra 30 days could get us to the amount needed to make this deal successful. If you want to reach the goal faster, be sure to spread the word. The best way to do that is to post a comment in one of the forum threads about these new finishes.
Thanks for your participation,
The APEX team
We’ve got a new plan.
To make sure we get enough participants to produce a new finish, we’re going to merge this deal into our upcoming standard 18” ARC-8 deal. We’ll offer the most popular speciality finishes for popular sizes, based on the demand you’ve shown in this deal.
We’re leaving this deal up for now to collect interest until the 18” ARC-8 deal is live. You’ll all be notified via email when that deal is open.
Thanks for helping us decide what we’ll release.
