What can you do to make the already-amazing exterior looks of the BMW i8 even better? The easiest and most affordable way is to add a set of aftermarket wheels. While the impressive and futuristic exterior design of the BMW i8 is clearly one of the best in the automotive industry, the factory wheel design can also get some updates. A perfect invitation for HRE Wheels to put together their own ideas for i8 wheels.

The owner, who bought a clean looking Sophisto Grey Metallic with BMW i Frozen Blue accent vehicle, had some customization in mind, wanting to give his ride a more unique appeal. So he 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. Built by Wheels Boutique, the BMW i8 project beforehand is a perfect showcase how clean a build can be executed.

In that regard, these HRE P101 wheels come with a monoblock configuration and a sporty design. Wheels are built in 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.

    Hi, looks perfect. Made a beautiful car better. Has it been lowered? I got a set of H&R Springs that I have yet to install because I am still trying to figure out the wheels I want to get.

    Kudos for detailing the sizes of the wheels and tires. Thanks

    No matter what wheels you put on it, you can’t polish a turd.

    I put Vossen VPS 311s in Graphite on mine: Fronts 21×8.5 with 245-40, rears: 21×10, 285-35 Pirelli P Zeros. I burned the original tires way in 12K, those Pirelli’s away in 12K and am trying Michelin PSS’s now.
    Clearances and offsets are great – I love them. I cried a bit the first time I hit a pothole and it put a little ding in the lip, and a whole lot more when I touched a curb parking.
