The Top 20 Strangest Wheel Designs of All Time
One of the easiest, if not the easiest, ways to transform the appearance of a vehicle is to change the wheels. Bolting on a set of big, sporty looking wheels can make even the most dull and pedestrian vehicle look more muscular and snazzy. Of course, that’s assuming the wheels are themselves muscular and/or snazzy looking.
At the opposite end of the spectrum lie wheels that are strange, if not downright weird. Some of these rims were fitted at the factory, but most are aftermarket pieces, and they run the gamut from functionally funky modern art pieces to kitschy tributes to cultural touchstones. Here then, in no particular order, are 20 of the most curious and kooky rims that have ever been attached to road-going motor vehicles.
