How 'bout a buy-here-pay-here Impala with rent-to-own wheels?

Yes. That is fairly well balanced/complimentary. What made me really look at other new cars was the 2013 Malibu. Neat lookging car, but totally overwhelmed by the absurd wheels. Then I realized that most of the GM cars on display were like that to some degree, then I started looking at other new cars ont he road or int he garage and realized that it is more common than not at least for the past year or so.

Changing the wheels is usually the first thing I do to my vehicles, or at the very least in the top five. I don't like chrome wheels, but I can understand why manufacturers use them. More people seem to like them then don't.
Yep, this is almost exactly what my father told me to look out when I was buying my first car. If you don't ask them about the wheels they're not going to tell you anything about them.

I'm not for the gaudy look either, if I can't convince the dealer to change it, I'll do it myself.
