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...
10.) Envy Monolyth
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.

9.) Enkei Spider
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.

8.) Asanti Skin Series
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.
This is a shame, since it's one of those horrible things mankind must never, ever forget.

7.) Chevy Cavalier Z24 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.

6.) Vision Morgana
This is a vision straight from our worst nightmares.

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.

4.) Forgatio Parlaro
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.

3.) Dollar bill rims
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.
