BMW i8 wheels renderings

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just a few wheel ideas with some of the most common wheels used on the forums: OEM M6 wheels, OEM M3 Competition, adv1, d2forged, work brombachers, bbs lmr, bbs lms, bbs ri, bbs lm, Forgestar F14, Rotiform BLQ, Volk TE37.

I color matched calipers, center caps, and wheel accents with the entire bmw i electric blue color scheme. What do you guys think? I threw in one pic of my car, ModQuench, at the end for kicks.

M6 GC wheels look great on it. I wonder if they would even fit in the car.

I enlarged all the wheels as well in my photo-CHOP, they're all closer to 21s or 22s.

There's a thread on the subject of who's placed a deposit for one:
http://bmwi.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=893028

I think it might be 3 or 4 people on here so far, and at least one other person on Bimmerfest who has put a deposit down, whom I haven't seen here.

That should become the official i8 order thread!

Personally I can't wait to see the CFRP / Carbon Fiber wheels that BMW has said will be an option for the i8.

Stock wheels are designed to reduce drag. I am sure BMW put a lot of r&d into their design.
