As if the BMW i8 wasn’t an attractive car already, Wheels Boutique took it a notch higer, adding a set of HRE Performance Wheels to this hybrid masterpiece. Certainly a proper selection for performance cars, these HRE P101 wheels come courtesy of one of the most known aftermarket wheel companies.
With an unparalleled approach to wheel manufacturing (all wheels are made for particular custom applications) together with a lightweight layout, the P101 line make the perfect aftermarket choice for a hybrid like this. A hybrid that values weight reduction as much as it does performance.
The BMW i8 can go from 0–100 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (160 mph). The BMW i8 has a fuel efficiency of 2.1 L/100 km (134.5 mpg-imp; 112.0 mpg-US) under the NEDC test with carbon emissions of 49 g/km. Additionally with the BMW i8, EPA rated its combined fuel economy at 76 equivalent (MPG-equivalent) (3.1 L gasoline equivalent/100 km; 91 mpg-imp gasoline equivalent).
The exterior design of the BMW i8 is considered to be a masterpiece, so taking the car’s looks to a new level is a challenge. They did, however, apply a matte black wrap to the i8, making its gorgeous lines and shapes even more visible and highlighted.
These wheels are sized 22×9 in the front and 22×10.5 in the rear, and they fill the large wheel wells exceptionally well. With the Translucent Blue chosen as the wheel finish, the car now looks even more futuristic and quite impressive.
