The BMW i8 is a popular sports hybrid that is doing wonders for BMW’s reputation in the eco-friendly world. The vehicle features one of the most futuristic looking interior and exterior designs among all cars available on the market today. It also features a perfectly balanced combination of a petrol engine and an electric drive motor, creating one of the best hybrid sports cars out there.
But, due to its popularity, sales numbers and availability, owners are getting worried about the unique appeal of their vehicles. While that might present an issue for BMW – after all, only a few color options/combinations are available – the aftermarket wheel industry is happy to hear news like this. The perfect example is this BMW i8 build by Wheels Boutique.
The owner, who bought a clean looking Sophisto Grey Metallic w/BMW i Frozen Blue accent vehicle, had some customization in mind, wanting to give his ride a more unique appeal. So the owner worked together with Wheels Boutique and ordered some custom forged wheels. The wheels come from HRE Performance Wheels and they are the HRE P101 wheel model, a perfect addition for the i8.
These HRE P101 wheels come with a monoblock configuration, with sizes of 22×9 in the front and 22×10.5 in the rear. The wheels showcase a Satin Charcoal finish. Additionally, a set of Pirelli P Zero Nero tires, sized 245/30/22 and 285/25/22 in the front and rear, respectively, was added. For a full photoshoot of this BMW i8 with HRE Wheels, done by Keenan Warner, check out the detailed gallery right below.
