The BMW F22 2-Series is a return to pure form for BMW, the spiritual successor to the 2002tii, the 228i M-Sport is a whole lot of turbocharged four cylinder fun.

However like most BMWs these days, the stock wheels really throw a wet towel on the looks of the car, which is why a set of new wheels for F22 BMW 2-Series is a great first mod for anyone (as we said in our 6 Best Mods for BMW F22 228i post) – and that’s precisely what Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei helped the owner of this 2-series do.

VMR WheelsV710 Wheels for BMW are one of the most popular wheels on the market and have been for the past decade, and with good reason. Like the E36, the style has aged well and looks great on any generation BMW.

The matte black finish ties in nicely with the other black accents on the car like the Dual Slot BMW Performance Kidney Grilles.

The split 7-spoke design of the V710 really compliments the lines of the 2-Series and gives it a much more sporting look than stock.

This is just the first of many mods to come for the F22, we’re sure we’ll see more like it again in the future, and just goes to show that yet again a set of wheels can really have a huge impact on the look of any car.
