…It had better be a real banana, and not a penis in a yellow coat. I scored these on Yahoo. I know that Wats aren’t the original banana spoke wheel, but they are certainly the best. No one else makes a 6.0kg 16 8J wheel. No one else got spoke shapes and lip steps this right. I know these aren’t the R-types that make fan boys go gaga, but I could only ask for so much given the minimum B-type offset.
I’m pretty excited to have them, even if they are by far the most expensive wheels I’ve ever bought. Watanabe’s have always been a favorite, but for the money I could never justify buying a set for my AE86. For kyusha fitment there are just far too many other 4×114.3 options. For Subaru’s and 5×100 though, not so much. This is essentially me giving up trying to find something unique and weird, and just buying my way out. I’ve never seen another set on a Subaru… which is cool. A couple people have told me it won’t look right, but the adage is that banana spokes look good on anything.
I have faith.
