Are they not just normal beetle wheels that have been banded?

On German plates. They look more like 5 1\2 rears and standard fronts.

Yes, thats what they look like but I would have thought it would be possible to buy these rather than having to band originals.

Fronts look too wide, dish looks too big, even for 5.5" stock rims - I'd say banded or re-rimed

Rear defo not stock, I'd guess 6"-7" wide
