Supercars at the 2010 SEMA Show - Click above for high-res image gallery

We've showcased many of the major automakers' one-off customizations specifically for the tuner crowd here at SEMA, but the vast majority of the show is populated by companies specializing in technology, performance upgrades, and of course, wheels. After all, when it comes to beautifully designed supercars, why mess with success by adding a body kit or even more power when you can personalize your go-fast machine with a set of unique, eye-catching wheels.

That said, the SEMA show is chocked full of companies who will sell you incomprehensible amounts of custom wheels, and we've pointed out cameras at a slew of supercars riding on modified rollers. See the lot in our high-res image gallery, below.

      With the possible exception of the HREs and the wheels on the LFA, this only served to remind me that there is no accounting for taste . . . or rotational mass . . . or unsprung weight . . .

      All these cars look great except the wheels!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Most of those wheels are hideous.

      Outside of the HRE booth, everything else looks trashy and tacky. If MTV cribs, Pimp My Ride, and West Coast Customs has taught us anything its that money can't buy taste.

      This booth typically has the most amazing collection of cars at SEMA...whether you like the wheels or not. This year, they have won my coveted "Worst Abuse of a Car, Over $150k" award, for the Phantom Drophead Coupe in School Bus Yellow with matching School Bus Yellow Leather interior. Truly the creator of this vehicle could never be accused of having good taste, or any for that matter. In my eight years attending, this wass the most frightening thing I've yet seen.

      Custom wheels on a supercar. . . the easiest way to let everyone know that you're a poser.*

      *Exception: Racing Wheels

        dumbest comment read today..and probably for the rest of the week.
        • 4 Years Ago
        what exactly do you mean by poser?

        have you even looked through the gallery? a lot of the these cars look even better than stock with these aftermarket wheels... (but not colormatched wheels, that's just tacky)
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah... because Camrys really sell wheels...
        • 4 Years Ago
        I looked at the pics and regardless of what they look like, they are not higher quality. Most if not all are of inferior quality to the wheels that come stock on the car; and replacing stock parts with inferior parts is just plain dumb. It seems to me that by doing that, it shows that one doesn't really appreciate what was done to engineer and make that car. So to me, this is something a poser would do.

        Is this perhaps a rather strong opinion? Yeah it is, but that's my feeling on the matter. I care more about having the best engineered parts on a car than the flashiest. Form should follow function.

      Where supercars go to get new wheels...that are ugly and of inferior quality and let everyone know you bought the car for all the wrong reasons.

      On paper the LF-A is amazing. In person, if you knew nothing about the car, you really wouldn't look twice. It looks like a 9/8ths scale late model Celica in person...And I'm a BIG Toyota fan. Which becomes even more depressing when you consider the price. A Ferrari at least looks the part. The LF-A is very underwhelming in person. There was another in the Claus Ettensberger booth as well.
        • 4 Years Ago
        my fault...that was the CEC booth.
      • 4 Years Ago
      What is with that, pretty much all of the aftermarket wheels (and aftermarket body kit for that matter) are like they're designed by some pimple faced teenager? Yes, they look cheap. Oh dear, does anyone still have those spinners on...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Some of those wheels are an exercise in good taste. The majority of the others though, not so much.

      The gallery is phenomenal though.

      The HRE's on the Gumpert are OK, but everything else here looks cheesy.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Been drag racing, street rodding, and street machining for 30 years and some of these rims that have come out over the last 10 years are the ugliest ever, I'll sure be glad when this "Pimp my" fad fades away, and it will.
