Hello! First of all, compliments for this wonderful blog! I like sprintstar wheels very much, I think that they are the best choice for a Volkswagen beetle. In the last two years I spent some time to obtain informations about sprintstar 4 bolts, and now I want to share them with all you. Above all, you can supplement this text with any other knowledge you can and you have to rectify my mistakes. Until now, I have possessed 12 original EMPI sprintstar (made by Lemmerz) and 4 FLAT4’s replica. I can say that original wheels can be painted or chromium plated while the replica are polished. The possible sizes (that I know) for the Empi are: 15 x 4.5 ET 34 or 41; 15 x 5.5 ET 0 or 6 or 26; 15 x 7.0 ET 0 or 16 ; 15 x 8.0 ET 0 or 16 or -25. The only possibility for Flat4 replica is 5 x 15 ET 17. I would like to know in which years Lemmerz have made these wheels, I think is about 1972, but I don’t know the precise years. Moreover, do you know if there are specific models of sprint star for beetle and superbeetle or not? And if there are, which are the differences? Thank you to everyone! nick

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. We want to put together VWAC cars with Sprintstar Wheels from all over the world, show their pictures on the blog, and possibly learn something more about these wonderful 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.
