I can't find results searching for VTO or +VTO, is it because it's a three letter search term? Anyway I'm curious about these, 5x130 pattern, 911 offsets, 15 and 16 inch wheels in 7 and 8 inch widths:

Gentleman posted in the classifieds (http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=217878) but no response or comments. I'm curious, anyone know anything?

While they're not as light as some other wheels on the market, or fuchs, I really am in love with them on my car.. Even made it on to the VTO website (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Not bad looking. I sold some 4-bolt Panasports to a member here. Love that look and it always hurts to see how good they look on his car. Key word being "his" car.

These look so much like the Panasports, or that Superlight copy, do you know if there's any common pedigree?

There aren't any weights on the website, do you remember them offhand, or do I have to call? And those are 7x16's, right? It looks like they go under narrow bodied rear fenders pretty well, better than 7x16 Fuchs. Any drama getting them to fit? And what tire is that, size and model?

Well done making their website, your car looks good, and looks like it belongs there.
