Awful. The car has wheels. Don't be ashamed and hide them. And this wheel doesn't go with the car. It's a hum drum wheel you see on other cars.

If all you wanted were sycophants who gushed about the fabulous wheels, you should have said so.

I actually don't care to be honest. Love the wheels, hate the wheels, everyone has an opinion.

I like em too. Kinda old school M Parallel.
Maybe like to tee them with silver rims/black center.
What size are they with what tire size & do they change road feel much?

Is this car lowered and if so, how's the ride? The wheels look less special to me than OEM, seems to be larger, right? What are the specs....

it does suit the car. It defeats the object and the spirit of it.

If you want a big bad supercar, go after a ferrari, a lambo.

The i8 is about cohesiveness.

I agree with this.

They do look good, but yet are wrong for the i8....if that makes sense
