Good job on the rims by the way. Photoworks rendering is pretty good once you get the hang of it. You
are a lot better at it than I am.

You clearly have no idea what you are looking at. When a cylindrical part is designed in SolidWorks, many times, it is created with "revolve" - this feature takes a central axis and revolves the sketch you created around it. There is nothing wrong with these parts, this guy knows what he is doing.

Just in case:

Cylindrical: a. Having the form of a cylinder, or of a section of its convex surface; partaking of the properties of the cylinder.
