6" fuchs on a bug ?

i have a pair of 6" Fuchs that i'm offering to a VW guy for his bug.
he's asking me if their the "early" style as he has a concern re: offset. i'm primarily a 356 type just getting my feet wet in the '900' world. i know that the "deep" 6's are the earliest. then there are 2 later types (?) one accepts the '3-clip' style cap and the other accepts the "cup" style cap. are all the offsets the same ? thanks in advance for any help. best, jerry

The 6'' fuchs fits all bugs without clearance problems. But with the 1302 and '73 1303 superbeetles the front wheels will foul on the front springs.
