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

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

Nor would I on mine (hypothetically speaking). But I can approve this.

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

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.

You don’t need to love it
I figured they would be polarizing.

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.

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.

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

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.

Now that I think would be a bridge too far!

Incredible – thinking of JDM-ing mine now…

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.
