GT Wheels

Are these considered GL? Well at least a little bit?
These are what I'm talking about except in a 15x5.5 and I'm just using these as and example.

I think my bug would look cool with them but in a silver or polished version.

I would not consider them GL either.

Actually I do not think they look good at all. PLus they are so skinny you cannot fit decent meats on them!

They were also available on the 914's. The 914's had a 41mm opffset, the ones for the beetle had a 27mm offset. Guy on thesamba told me.
