Italy meets JDM

Now this is a first: Watanabes on an Alfa Romeo— specifically, this GTV6. What do we all think of this?

  1. Drop dead gorgeous

  2. I still wouldn’t on mine …but I’d understand. It does look the part.

  3. Looks absolutely fantastic! I wonder how he made them fit; wobble nuts, machined the wheels, custom ordered?

  4. To be honest, I don’t love it. I don’t think they match the car’s style and, besides, they are too big.
    I would choose a wheel of brand/model more related to period racing to do justice to the car.

  5. Oh that is just fantastic! I am a fan.

  6. yuk !
    and it looks like it has the stupid stretched tyre stance fitment ?
    double yuk !!

    • I was more interested in the wheels than the stretch on the tires, just curious on what they looked like on the car. Its hard to find a set of deep dish watanabe’s without a stretch fitment. I took these particular ones off an AE86.

  7. What is really atrocious is the so-called architecture in the background. Upper-middle class suburban America. Yuk Yuk Yuk.

    • Agreed. Give me something mid-century modern instead. It’s not common but it’s out there.

    • easy…thats where I live man (not that particular house in the background). lol. my tastes have changed quite a bit since I moved into this neighborhood but I still like where I live. It is what it is.

  8. I like these better than panasports. Love the bronze color.

  9. Absolutely lovely.

  10. Doesn’t look out of place. I’m liking it. Yet, for more JDM style I’d move the side mirrors up on the fenders, and get smaller side mirrors.

  11. Incredible – thinking of JDM-ing mine now…

  12. Hey thanks for the post, it was just an experiment. I finally got the old boy running so i took some shots and decided to try something that you normally dont see on gtv6’s.

  13. looks great, what are the dimensions and offset?
