I only asked about the gt wheels because i was offered some for free but since wide tires cant be put on them i wont waste money to pay s & h for them.

They do, they're BBW brand (I know.... but that's how it's called)
http://www.bbwwheels.com/

That's one good thing about living in Mexico, great demand for bug specific stuff

I would consider them more Import Tuner wheels.

BUT that is no problem. They look good so if you like them then rock em!

they probably dont. if you want you can send me via email or pm whatever you want to say and i'll translate it to spanish for you to send it. Also, you are probably better off buying from a distributor, as the company might not make any direct sales.
HERE is a link for a distributor. It's more likely that they speak engish.

Think I could possibly get a wheel from BBW through like Discount Tires, if there was a guy that knew the same language.Also the link you showed me ummm whats 6,500mx? sounds like alot but in American its probably not as scary.
