Wheel design can make or break the whole look of a car. Good wheel design can catch one’s eye and draw you in. Whether it is a nice simple split-spoke or some huge 21-inch rims on a luxury car, it seems that a good deal of attention is lavished on wheels now, a great leap from the days of steelies and dog-dish caps. We asked Jalopnik readers what they thought were their favorite production car wheels. Here are the top 10.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day, our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best 10 responses from the previous Question of the Day  and shine it up to show off. It’s by you and for you, Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
