The 2014 GT-R wheels are hideous!

Hopefully the ones on the motor show car are an option and you can still spec the DBA rims? I've never seen an uglier design on a performance car!



Nearly as tasteless as the analogy Autoguide gave about the Nismo's tyres:
"exclusive Dunlop tires grip the road like a bear’s claws in the torso of a small child"
WTF?

Wow they are rank.

IMO they've got worse every year althought they've really outdone themselves with these monstrosities!

I like the Nismo one's though.

Looks like someone in the factory accidentally used two different moulds at the same time.

Hideous perfection for the softer 2014 sofa.
At least the forged mono-bloc may be offered as an option, albeit in some funky metallic finish.
