There's a trend in alloy wheels and it's an ugly one. They're not silver. They're not all black. Instead, they're a particularly nasty combination of both and usually have a super-busy shape. Frankly, I hate them. Nearly every automaker has some heinous form of these round partially painted abominations and none of them look good. Not one of them. None.
A black-and-silver wheel isn't anything new. I remember the Buick Regal from the late 1970s and early 1980s having silver and black wheels. I didn't like them then, and I don't like them now. They always looked like the wheels on a Hot Wheels car, but not nearly as good. In fact, I wish they were only seen on Hot Wheels.
In case you still don't get what I'm talking about, here are some examples:
the new Fit.
So I have to ask: Do you like this look, or are you in my camp and think the two-tone wheel should be jettisoned into space for no one to ever look at again? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments.
