Your wheels sit inside the guards a lot. This makes them look thin (are they thin?
Their design is very hektic. They simply dont look like wheels. A wheel has a round lip around the outer edge with spokes from the centre of the wheel to the lip. Yours has weird shapes from the centre of the wheel right to the edge of the rubber. If you took a photo of one of your rims and erased everthing around the metal, and showed to random people, I bet some people would say it looks like an earing or a cufflink stud or something along those lines. They look like jewellry and not a wheel.
They are flat. There is no depth to the wheel. It looks like a piece of aluminium has been cut into that shape and stuck onto the side of your steel wheels. A good wheel design allows you to see through the wheel somewhat to see how deep the wheel is - which makes them look tough, or even gives you a feeling of depth on the outer side of the wheel - with wide lips, aka "dish."
They're shiny. Unproportionally shiny in comparison to the rest of the car. Once again, they look like some kind of jewellry, and not a rim. Nothing else on your car is that "bright" in the sunlight. If you had candy paint, or paint with a lot of shine to it, that "chrome" effect would suit. But your wheels just stand out too much and dont flow with the rest of the car. Plus with chrome wheels you HAVE to keep them clean ALL of the time, which sucks even more. Too much effort for my liking.
Ok, I think I covered just about everything. Colour, Shape, Width and Depth. Hopefully you now understand what most of us consider to be good criteria for selecting a wheel, and the main reasons why most of us dont like the wheels you have chosen for your car.
Far out dude.........do you work at a tyre and rim centre!!!!
Thanks for the description and the feedback........well i kinda dont know what to say about the details but hey, thanks for taking the time to get it all down.
The are 18 X 8 all round, and yeah offset isnt a hige issue, thats easily fixed. In regard to the dish finish you are talking about these rims only came with a dish in 20" and above (mostly suiting SUV's). Ill have to agree with you about the maintenence, but i can tell you my ride shines beautifully when its polished and post a good washin', unfortunetly we have had pretty crappy weather in adelaide of late so its hard to get a wash in that will last more than a few hours!!!
Dude, whats with the negative attitude, get a life and try making your own "Pizza Boy" logo.......gees your lame!!!!
