Katu

For as long as I have known Katu Hatanaka, he has been changing his wheel setup to something new and different constantly. While with each new wheel setup came a different look for the car, it was probably not what Katu was looking for. Here we have a quick look at Katu Hatanaka’s Metropolitan Gray Mica Mazdaspeed Axela from Kyoto, Japan on his latest set of wheels.

These are Sportec Design Mono10 in 18×9.5 +20 all around on Nankang NS-2 215/40/18.


Triple shot of a few different angles of how it sits on the car. You can find the individual shots in the gallery at the bottom of this post.


The rear is simple and cleaned up. No rear wiper blade and no model name emblems.


The heart of Katu’s ride.
