I would like to tell Toyota to build some better off road wheels

Is it just me or do others think the factory alloy wheels that have spokes that stick out to the edge of the wheel is a dumb design? This is an off-road vehicle that is going to be driven through rocks. Why have the spokes sticking out so far that they easily get marred on rocks.

I would like to tell Toyota to design a 8" to 9" wide wheel with inset spokes and a replaceable metal rim to protect the edge of the wheel. A colored imitation bead lock rim that could protected the edge of the rim and could be inexpensive to replace when it got marred would be a big improvement over having expensive damaged wheels.
