Bf 109G-4: spoked or stamped main wheels?

Quote from 'Bf 109 In Action', Part 2, by John Beaman (p. 23):

"The oversized tires brought a degress of improved landing and ground handling (...). The new stamped wheels that were introduced on the G-3 , were considerably cheaper to produce than the spoked wheels(...)"

However, many photos show G-4s with the spoked main wheels.

So did the 'regular' G-4s have the old spoked wheels, or the new stamped (full) wheels?
