I like alloys with deep rims; however in my opinion it is sitting a bit high. Too much of a gap between the tyre and the wheel arch.

I too like the deep rims and I see they are chromed also. However I'm not too sure about the inward curve. I think it tends to make the wheels look to be too small.   Have you reversed the photo or is that actually a left hand drive you have there.  Otherwise great picture and welcome to the forum.

If you dont like the wheels, definately take em off.  There's nothing worse than having to put up with something you're not quite happy with.
