Default Most Beautiful set of Wheels on Cars!!

Hey Guys!!
Most people define a cars beauty by its styling, lines, headlights, and other parts of its body. But i feel that a very important aspect of cars which adds a lot to the 'character' of a car, is given a lot less importance. It ofcourse has to be its shoes. So here is a thread i decided to start a thread dedicated to the best set of wheels on any car according to you. From Gumperts to Gwagens, its all accepted. So go ahead guys, share your thoughts. And to get things going, here are what i think are the most beautiful set of wheels on any car!!

It is indeed the shoes of the Ferrari F355: it is considered by many as one of the most beautiful car on planet earth. and the wheels of the thing are not far behind. the simplicity in its design complement the smooth lines of the car perfectly. its a holy matrimony decided by the auto-gods themselves!!

You speak my language, Bivin. It's the alloy wheels that make the car. I'm known to screen through 30 - 50 sets of designs before choosing wheels for my cars....an area I'm extremely particular about.

Back to the topic, something about Porsches with deep dish black alloy wheels:

I love those designs posted by GTO. They are one of the most beautiful wheels I have ever seen. I guess this was originally designed by BBS and look good in matt finish.

Amongst my other favorites - its the Lamborghini Diablo :

My current favourite set of wheels. They look like difficult wheels to make.

So sharp, you would probably have to visit the emergency room after every tyre change!

Absolutely gorgeous. Truly, as a fellow bhpian said shoes indeed define a car's beauty and character.

There is something about BBS wheels that look amazing irrespective of which generation 911 they're being worn by! They look smashing on any Porsche! Here you see a 993 and a 997 with pretty much the same BBS wheels!

Of course, Ayan's choice would've been my first choice as well! Nothing like classic Fuchs on a 911 any day! Porsche's and Fuchs go together like meat and mayo! But BBS wheels set them off pretty well too!

P.S. EDIT: IMO, these wheels would've been better if they were deep dish!

These design of the alloys appeal not only in looks but also from a utilitarian POV. They will channel a lot more air towards the disc as compared to some other alloys, thus helping in reducing the temp of the discs during hard braking.

IMO Alfas have the most gorgeous set of wheels! They are a work of art.
Following are the pictures of the Alfa 8C and MiTo. Only Alfa Romeo can build a car that is beautiful in all respects.
