Im partial to the late 90's MB AMG monoblocks, part of what made me want the car....

though not sure what it says that i eventually replaced the wheels. the ones on my car had some rash and issues with the polished lips. was gonna upgrade to the 18" version from the E55 amg as the car in this photo, but everyone who has this car does that (still the best looking wheels for the car though) and they are quite heavy, and expensive to get real ones, so i went with something lighter.
I know these are love/hate for lots of people.

I love these simple wheels that have a spaceship-like quality to them.
Not to forget the hugely succesful Philips Roller radio, which started a new design approach appealing to young people, even before My First Sony.

I love those Lotus Wobbly Webs. I've always liked the old school Jag spoke rims:

Way back in time a girlfriend of mine had those on an english green Austin Maestro while we dated.
She was (and is) a stunning redhead with freckles.

The color of the car contrasted her hair nicely, the cuddly rims contrasted the ruler straight lines of the Austin, all good.

Hope this solves your mystery.
