Wheels Gone Wrong? BMW i8 Sports Red Vossen Wheels


Probably Not The Right Wheel For This Car

Probably Not The Right Wheel For This Car

It’s shocking how much a wheel swap can change the entire appearance of a car…for better, or worse.

Spotted at the Miami Beach Concours, this BMW i8 wears huge red Vossen wheels and we think the overall look of this i8 has taken a turn for the worse simply due to poor wheel color selection.

But, to each their own, right?

      The wheels are innocent.

      The i8 is “Citrôen concept car” ugly. Not quite “Gumpert ugly”, but close. BMW has often embraced odd styling to gain attention in special products. Not in their mainstream line lately, but I respect their willingness to take risks.

    Yeah, but when you open the hatch does it have an lcd screen and a Playstation?

    They look much worse in that picture than they do in the video. It’s not my style, but I can see the RC car look they were going for and its kind of fun.

    I prefer the blacked/greyed out stealth look myself, but I do realize that this style is becoming a bit dated already.

    I think everyone is missing the point.
    I think the owner chose wheels that would get the car noticed.


    And ANYTHING that gets EV’s noticed, for now, is a good thing.

    “OMG, Look at those wheels!”
    “Holy crap…it’s plugged in!”
    “What IS that?”

    Love it.

    Brings plugin’s much needed street credit among a certain demographic.

    And yes, mission accomplished.
