BBS 17" wheels onto the type3 Squareback

Since my bug is not going anywhere and its rims have still M+S (winter) tires on them, I thought I'd try them on the square: They fitted

Since these are 7+8,5J x 17, that was very much a (pleasant) surprise
Damn, it almost immediately looks a GL now



Thought, I'd share my joy.
Regards,
Walter

Hi Jason,
They are porsche Boxster wheels, made for porsche by BBS. Both manufactorers logos are stamped on the back of the wheels
ET front is 55, rear wheels have ET50.

What is the offset on those wheels? I'm looking for the same dimension for my Type-34 Ghia too.

You wouldn't have the picture of the Square with those wheels anywhere?
