Someone with horrible taste, and way to much money?

Am I the only one that thinks those wheels look like Sh*t?

Looking on the design I don't know rotary mass is that good. They don't get thinner to the rim side. How more weight from the center how more gyroscopic effect.

edit: sorry for the offtopic, but at the beginning I even almost though those were car rims. Just plain ugly

The rim, the spokes and the hub, equaling the wheel....not an attractive wheel at all.
A disc type wheel would look better, just as strong, maybe a coupla grams heavier..!
