As i wrote when I opened this blog, we want to put here everything about Sprintstars, even ads. That's why you find here these beautiful 5,5" X 15" 5 bolts Sprintstars, sold by Steve. I will just put a couple of pics, if you're interested in the wheels you find the full ad at the following link: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=408663
Here we are again... first of all thanks for the 500 visits in just 5 days... thanks a lot. To celebrate this event, here you are new pics. These wheels' owner is Steve, and I met him on www.thesamba.com Let's see what he says about them: " I tend to agree, Sprintstars really ARE one of the most beautiful wheels madeas far as custom wheels go. The thing I like about them is that they don't have the "harsh angularity" that the very popular BRM/BRM replicas have--the Sprints seem to have "softer edges," which, to me, go better with the graceful curves of old VWs, like Bugs and Ghias. Just my feeling anyway. The fact that they're *steel* (the originals anyway) also appeals to me on some level--maybe more of an "old school" type of thing...
I've done refinishing projects on both 5-bolt and 4-bolt in the "standard" two tone rally wheel silver w/dull black highlights (wow, the masking job on 4-bolters is a lot more intensive than for 5-bolters), also some monotone silver 4-bolters, which, to me, allowed the slots to stand out a bit (they kind of get lost in the blackness otherwise).
The latest look I'm anxious to try is glossy black monotone, with chrome lug bolts & caps. Here is my set of 4-bolt narrows, as freshly painted last fall (not sure what kind of tires I want to put on them yet, though)
Hi guys, I wanted to wait for the registration of the owner, but I can't wait... I have to post the pics of this car... it's amazing... I'll post the pic and the brief description the owner (Zach Gomulka from Prescott, Arizona, USA), I want to read your comments, 'cause I find the car wonderful...
Here is my GTV, originally fitted with chrome 5.5" Sprints all the way around, now with 4.5" up front and drop spindles with 4 wheel disc brakes Sorry, second pic is from a cell phone.
Hi my name is Andrea and the nice red beetle is dudu ! this is the first picture with a set of sprintstar bought in Switzerland ... with many others ! Stay tuned because in the next day new picture of the car with a different set of wheels is coming.
Hello everybody, First of all I’m sorry for my English! I think that the Sprintstar Blog’s is a very good idea and it is a pleasure for me write on it. I have buy my wheels from a guy here in Italy and I know that he have been bought its in Switzerland.
I like this wheels very much, in effect I have them a lot of time before my beetle. Now, after some work days’, this is the result!!
Hi everybody! First of all, thanks to Enrico (Maggiolino84), for creating this blog. I am "the other guy", who is enthusiast of Sprintstar wheels, and who will put a series of them under his Superbeetle. Now my Sprintstar, 4,5"x15 for the front axle, and 5,5"x15 for the rear, are totally black, but they will become black and grey before going under my bug. Asap other Italian sprintstar owners will post their car's pics, and I hope to post mine next week.
Here is the first post. My 1986 Jubilee Beetle, with its "brand new" Sprintstar wheels. I bought these wheels from a guy here in Italy, but I know they have been imported some time ago from USA. Those wheels are original, their size is 5,5" X 15" and I think they fit perfectly on my little Bug :-)

Welcome to the International Sprintstar Wheels Owners Registry. This blog comes from an idea of two italian guys, owners of Volkswagen Aircooled cars equipped with Sprintstar wheels.

IF YOU WANT TO POST YOUR PICTURES PLEASE CONTACT US: email@example.com
Just a couple of things more: it doesn't matter if you have original Sprintstar wheels or Replica wheels, everyone is welcome. The other important thing is that this registry is both for 4 bolts and 5 bolts sprintstars.
Last rule (maybe the most important), is that before posting on this blog for security reasons you have to send us an email with the picture you want to post and a description. We will post your pictures asap.Thanks.
