Flow Forged V-FF 101s on a Tesla, What Rims for the i8?

”evwheels”

These days you see aftermarket wheels on everything, supercars, the UPS truck, even a $200 primer Civic has a set of wheels that probably cost five times what the car did. Most of the time, just changing a set of wheels, can change the whole attitude of a vehicle. What you don't usually see though, are aggressive, larger diameter aftermarket wheels on EVs, like this Tesla, sporting Flow Forged V-FF 101s. Looks quite good I think, but it makes me think. What rims would set off BMW's i8?

What do you think? The i8 looks really good as is, but a more aggressive set of wheels could put it over the edge.

That does NOT look good, at all, on the i8.

We hope to get our hands on one….we were among the first to modify the Tesla and figure out you can fit 10.5 up front…..
