Ugly rims or what?

I saw a Chrysler 300 with these 20's on it yesterday and took some phone-camera shots to prove I'd spied the most hideous, ugly rims anyone has ever put on their car. If you have pix of uglier rims, do post them!

Not a very good parker, either. Taking up 2 spaces!

I used to like the Chrysler 300...but I see so many everyday know. Kinda over it.

Hey Randall, I bet the owner was watching you take pictures of his ride! And he said to his buddy, "Hey look at that super-cool Porsche dude taking pictures of my ride...he loves my rims so much...he wants a photo!"

I'll bet they are RUF wheels... they'd look good on a Box.

I think they look like batmobile wheels, with chromed claws or something. The spokes extend a good 3/4 inch out from the edge of the rim. One close call with a curb and the whole rim will be chewed up!

If they did contact the curb it would be no loss!

Ridiculous... there are much better choices in 20s out there. The whole "rim" thing I never understood... is it a status thing so people know how much you paid for your rims. Or is it a personalization thing... or both. I personally always liked the stock alloys at least on my prior BMWs or the Porsche. Whatever..
