Most car manufacturers seem to think that “base” steel wheels should be painted black and hidden behind crappy plastic hubcaps that look like alloy wheels. That’s hogwash. In 5 years, the hubcaps will be cracked or scraped or faded and look like crap. Paint the steel wheels silver and let them shine.
This is arguably one of the prettiest cars made, and it did just fine with steelies.
UPDATE: OK, they’re not steel. But they have the plain look of modern stamped steel wheels.
