To be fair, the aero wheels were not very good looking. The silver/grey combo didn't do them any favors, and I thought the sharp, angular, geometric design looked out of place on a car with graceful swooping lines. In contrast, a flat disc has no such distraction. Not to say that these are real lookers, either, but they're not as distracting as Tesla's Aeros.I like the idea, but folks are giving this garage hackjob an aesthetic pass while hating on the aero wheels?
An even better solution would be to have the back wheel covered like the original Honda Insight had it for example. It's a matter of integrating it in the design. I think most people don't like it and think it's unattractive.
