As we said in our guide to the Best Mods for BMW F30 335i, the best first mod is a set of wheels for BMW F30. Renny K just picked up this 2015 BMW 335i [F30] and came in to see Sr Mod Expert Alan here at ModBargains to make a new set of shoes happen. The right wheels can make all the difference in the look of your car, and the F30 is no exception.

Already fitted with a few BMW Performance Exterior Mods for BMW F30, this Melbourne Red F30 was already well on its way to looking amazing, sporting a set of BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Mirror Covers for F30 3-Series on its mirrors…

Further exterior mods include a painted BMW Performance Front Splitter for BMW F30 M-Sport up front…

Rounding out the package in the rear is a painted BMW Performance Trunk Spoiler for BMW F30 3-Series, paired with a BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for F30 3-Series M-Sport, which is left in carbon fiber to tie in neatly with the carbon fiber mirror covers. The blend of painted and carbon fiber exterior mods works a lot better than you’d think.

To match the car’s theme, Sr Mod Expert Alan recommended Renny go with a set of HRE Performance Wheels. Alan spec’d out a set of HRE FF01 Wheels in Tarmac Black for BMW with 19×8.5 ET30 up front and 19×10 ET40 in the rear.

To give the F30 the grip to match the light weight and strong HRE Flow Form wheels, Alan paired the FF01s with a set of Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 Tires to put that N55 power to the ground.

The painted BMW Performance Front Lip really gives the F30 Exterior a much more aggressive dynamic.

The fitment looks great, though we have to say that the suspension is begging for a drop to eliminate the excess wheelgap in order for the car to look its best.

The FF01s fill out the wheel arches nicely, protruding just enough to give the arches a more complete look.

All in all, just the addition of wheels really completes the car’s look, transforming its aesthetic from “hey, a red BMW” into “WOW, Check out that gorgeous Red BMW!”. As we’ve said before and we’ll say again, wheels and exhaust note are the things most people notice first about your car – so the question is, do you want to be noticed?
