Mahle gas burner wheels

My '76 has Mahle "gas burner" wheels on it. I have heard that this wheel style is coveted by some Porschephiles because it is rarer than the Fuch or the Pedrini wheels. Is this the case or does it just apply to the five-lug version of this wheel that came on some 914-6's?

That's just the five-bolt ones. The four-bolt are cast aluminum, like the earlier-style Pedrini rims. (Which they resemble to some extent.)

The five-bolt Mahles are cast magnesium, and are much lighter than the other 5.5J15 rims.
