Showing Love to the BMW i8 Once More - HRE P101's x Wheels Boutique





Back in early 2014 when we first tackled the BMW i8 we knew that we had to create something special because everyone would be looking to top the first heavily modified i8 completed by our team. We chose none other than HREs flagship P101 monoblock and now, almost at the end of 2016, we still get i8 customers walking into our showroom asking for the same setup. We were fortunate enough to get it right the first time and created the industry standard for this vehicle by doing so.

Wheel Specs:
HRE P101
22x9 // 22x10.5
Finish: Satin Charcoal
Tires: Pirelli P Zero Nero
Front: 245/30/22
Rear: 285/25/22


PM us for details, availability, and pricing. Tell us what you think by commenting below!

Yeap, HRE dropped the P101 in Q1 of 2013 and BBS followed with their own take on it almost 2 years later in Q4 of '14.

Unlike the FI-R the P101's are custom built to order so weight varies depending on wheel size and vehicle application. Approximate weight on this particular fitment is 23.2 lbs for the front and 24.7 lbs for the rears.

Thanks! Yeah i was torn between getting 21's or 22's. Went with 22's because i found out that the tires would be easier to find when it comes to replacing them. Most 21's are on back order, specifically Pilot Super Sports.

Haha and that's what I was afraid of. I think i'll be happy with the wheels. Ride quality might be a little jarring, but waiting on tires for who knows how long when I really need them, I am not interested.
