Hey, at least it comes with the original wheels. It got me wondering what the worst wheel choice GRMers have seen might be.

There are too many E36 M3ty looking wheels out there. I don't even know where to start. I work in the ghetto quite often, so I see horrible wheels day in, day out. There are A LOT of ugly aftermarket wheel for 4x4s.

Whoever thought those wheels look good on that Jeepster has to be legally blind.

I think they were just trying to distract people from how inherently hideous the Jeepster is.

I think the seller was going for the covered wagon look with those spoked wheels.

No pics, but a heavily riced Neon with 14" stealies and factory gumball wheel covers.

There's an H2 Hummer for sale in town that has nailed this look. Bright yellow with chrome wheels that look for all the world like wagon wheels and about a 1" sidewall. It looks much like this.

Any truck that looks offroad-worthy but then has big blingin' chrome wheels with rubber band tires. The pimpmobiles like that H2 actually don't bother me as much, but a Hilux or Raptor on those things? BARF

Second would be certain cars with the "small wheel JDM" look. This is the bob cut of wheel selections: On a few it looks good, but on most it looks awful. A good rule is that if your car is a '90-something model, don't do this.

There were a couple of way jacked up F250 4x4's around Charleston with wheels like the ones on that Hummer. I nearly snorted coffee out of my nose the first time I saw one. There are so many people with absolutely no clue running around out there... and yes custom wheels have gotten AWFUL.

These guys really nailed the wagon wheel look

Any NA or NB Miata with any wheels larger than 16", and that's pushing it.

And yeah, the ugly aftermarket wheel selection is just too hideously gigantic for me to pick out particular examples.

Bryan, I don't know what you're thinking; Jeepsters are inherently awesome. At least those wheels are only 20 lug nuts away from the dumpster.
