those wheels look like they'd be at home on an oversized beetle.

They suck. Case in point: look at the number of comments about just the wheels. They are a distraction rather than a harmonious piece of the car's design.

I agree with everyone else. Actually, IMO the wheels aren't bad, just not right for the car. Other than that it's hard for an Aston Martin not to be hot.
