Default Standard 5.5J 4-stud 15" ET34 steel wheels?

Do they exist in the UK? I realise 4J's were around in 1967 or so and these increased to 4.5J's later on, but would 5.5J's just be for US imports or 1303 or later beetles?

I'm not talking about the GT-type wheel which come in 5.5J and 4.5J. Nor Marathon Lemmerz's either.

I've seen Porsche replica 5.5's but they are chromed only? In all other aspects are they the same as 4.5J's that seem more abundant?

Thanks.

I've seen a special edition 1303 cabrio (triple black) with stock style 5.5" wide steel wheels but most seemed to come with the GT style in that size.
Some 914 porsches did come with 5.5" steels with plain hubcaps.
