I disagree. I think the lack of contrast between the face and the lips gives the wheel that awkward/odd look, since the spokes suggest a sense of movement, the added concaveness causes that "distortion" IMO ... To your point, he could go a tad lower up front to improve fitment.

Front sitting on 235/35s



Rear on 275/30s





Tires on wheels:
235/35 on the 10s & 275/30 on the 11s
