The saying goes, When In Rome, Do As The Romans Do. When in LA, do as Californians do – that’s what the Quan, the vacationing owner of this F12 BMW 640i xDrive Coupe did with a bit of help from the Mod Experts . When I’m on Vacation, I always think, “damn, I wish I had my car here.”, and I often think, “Man, some new wheels would really look great.” – and that’s precisely what Quan did.

Out in SoCal from Colorado, the stock BMW 640i wheels weren’t exactly cutting it, and if you’re driving around Los Angeles, you wanna look GOOD.

The Mod Experts had some great options in mind for the F12 640i, and knew we had the fitment Quan would need in stock. A set of HRE FF01 Flow Form Wheels in the Tarmac finish would compliment the F12’s bodylines nicely and the Mod Experts spec’d out the HRE Flow Form Wheels in 20×8.5 up front and 20×10 out back for a beefy stance appropriate for the big body 6er.

To ensure the proper traction for the remainder of his trip, the Mod Experts had the HRE Flow Form Wheels wrapped in some nice sticky Hankook rubber. We went with Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 in 245/35R20 for the 20×8.5 up front and 285/30R20 for the 20×10 rears.

The black pairs nicely with the tarmac finish on the FF01s.

The side profile of the car is great on the FF01s, none of the clutter or unnecessary bulkiness like you see with the ugly stock wheels.

We love how Quan’s 6 came out and up close, the rich deep black really looks amazing (sadly, black never photographs as good as it looks in person) and is sure to turn many heads in SoCal – and back in Colorado – looking good with a fresh set of wheels and tires, Quan’s sure to enjoy the drive.
