A good set of wheels is one of the cheapest ways to improve your ride's looks, but just lack of taste can lead to disastrous results. Jalopnik readers have a few ideas about what we should avoid...
Using a set of Envy Monolyth wheels is fine as long as you're preparing a surprise for a young dotcom billionaire. In any other case, just forget it.
This is supposed to be some sort of limited edition special from Enkei, and while you can't buy it anymore, there's a wheel center hub cap on Ebay in case you need an ugly and expensive paperweight.
Here's a reminder of horrid things from PanchoVilleneuve:
The world seems to have forgotten that for a while, back during the height of the bling craze, Asanti put ostrich leather on wheels.

It's hard to tell what General Motor was thinking when they put this on the late 80s Cavalier Z24, but nothing is further from sporty or good looking than a square piece that looks like cheap tile from a public toilet.
It's especially bad that these are OEM wheels, and not aftermarket.

It's hard to believe that you can actually make a Lexus SC430 less desirable, but these rims make it happen. I don't know who the manufacturer was, but I hope they went bankrupt soon enough after this came out.
What might look great on a piece of paper after a boring art class doesn't necessarily work in reality. Forgatio's whole lineup is a proof of that.

Apparently, these are cheaper than spinners. So, if you're a real badass gangster on a tight budget, a set of these will have to do.
It's a great name even if spelled wrong, since it certainly assassinates your car's looks for good.
While the city of Houston finds these Swangas cool, the road is not a chariot race and you're not Spartacus. These are not only ugly, but also dangerous. There's a reason why you don't see things like this in Europe.
