Default What are these 4stud steels?

Can anyone identify these?
I got them about 5years ago when they were chromed but had them blasted and powdercoated. They're an inch broader and fill the arches a bit better, I think 5.5"
Don't think I'll be using them after this time so just going to punt on










Cheers

Jim - any casting marks or punched numbers or letters on the rear side between the stud holes?

Do you know the PCD - looks a little too small for 4x 130 ( "4 stud bug" - same as 70s and 80s 4 stud Skoda)

Yes defo bug 4x130 pcd 5.5x15" wheels.

Mangels great cheers for that dudes. Haven't seen many of the around, advertised them locally over here for 175 but no idea of value, I've a bit in them with blasting and powdercoating.

Have a vague memory they won't accept original Bug hubcaps, just aftermarket or T2?? I haven't tried as didn't want to scratch powdercoating if I'm not keeping them, but I have seen them with hubcaps

Cheers dude, I see you're from Angelsey, me 67 Bug is from that area originally, Anglesey / Menai Bridge. Was reg'd to a post office there for the first few years and stayed in the area until around 1989. Was originally reg'd GEY334F then re reg'd in 1989. I'd tried get some history before but no joy pre 1989
This is it a good few years ago after re reg

Cheers dude, that pic was over 10 years ago, it had a rebuild shortly after that although looked no different after lol (wings, door, decklid, floor, channels, interior, bumpers) then I got bored and started modding a bit as you do!
Any idea what fair price for the mangels are , or just what someone willing to pay?
