    901 361 012 04 deep six alloys?

    I recently saw a set of deep six rims. The part number stamped on the rim is 901 361 012 04. I have always thought the deep six rim part number ended in 06.
    They have the fox stamp, appear to be the same dimensions as 06 deep six rims, and have the web on the rear.
    Can anyone tell me the difference? Are they worth more, or less?

    TIA

    I think the 5 inch rim was a one year only wheel in 1968 before it went to the 06 part number of the deep 6.

    Value I would think would be similar to the 6 but it seems this rim is more desirable to the VW community. Much in the same way as the 4.5 rims in that they can fit under the arches a little better.

    6 X 15

    Thanks for info. However, I did look at the rims again. They ALL have a 6 X 15 stamp on them, in addition to the part number and fox head. Why would the parts book say 04 is a 5.5" rim, when the rims are stamped 6 X 15?
