"Tacky" and "Tasteful" cost the same, right?

Wrong. There's a 10% surcharge for "tacky." The 4th-grade boys in the Carbon Sports airbrush department don't work in trade for Lunchables and PSP games, apparently. On a related note, I've gotten a bunch of search engine traffic from this similar example, a Velocity wheel I'd like to think was tarted up by Eric Cartman. No word on any surcharges for the gamete graphics, though.
Anyway, David mentioned these rim adornments that I found a bit more to my liking, since they make at least a nod toward practicality. Then a sample showed up in my inbox a coupla days later. One of these days, I'll actually mount them up, take a few pics, and someone else can link to them and make snarky comments about my questionable taste in rim aesthetics.
