I agree. I do not have as much experience on vintage VW as Big Al or
probably everybody in the list but in the few books I have it show the thin
white wall type on them. I like the looks, it match perfect with beauty
rings too. During my slow but surely restoration on my '68 I'm going for the
thin size white walls. I must say, Ghia ( not T34) looks darn good on those
wide white walls, their body style helps to do so. IMOHO    TIA
