2022 Genesis EV wheel design: too much?


 I think the wheel design team at Hyundai/Kia/Genesis might be consuming something that might be a bit too strong for them. 

I have seen very compacted looking wheels on spy shots of many of their upcoming cars lately. This one is from the upcoming Genesis EV, based on the Ioniq5.  It might end up looking OK. But when you just look at the wheel by itself, it's pretty intense. 

And what a joy it must be to keep it clean...

Sorry Vince, I disagree. This looks great, it's original and artistic.

Would have hate to see another 5 star design without anything interesting, this is totally the opposite of that. Good for you Genesis.

They make spray cleaner for rims. Problem solved.

The worst is the Palisade Calligraphy wheel. 🤷‍♂️ Not real sure what's going on.

it looks awful. the inspiration looks to be a game of pick up stix.

Definitely too much. That's my one complaint with Hyundai lately...their rims are terrible. I like a simple 5-spoke.
