Hi guys, update time!!!! Our dear friend Andreas sent us some pics, and believe me they left me breathless. His cars are fantastic, and his wheels are perfect! I think each set of sprintstar deserve a single post, so I divided in 4 parts the pics he sent me and I'll post the following in the next days (so keep visiting our blog). Oh by the way, before writing Andreas words and posting the pics I'd like to put the link to Andreas blog, really really cool. www.oval56.de
"So my set on my 57 oval with my doughter: 2x 4 inch(offset 24mm) + 2x 5,5 inch new chromed"
Hi guys, I received this help request from an italian friends. Please read it and if you know a possible answer, help him. Thanks:
hello guys, I'm Davide and I'm restoring my '71 dune buggy. I found these Empi by Lemmerz sprintstar wheel, 2 in 15x5,5 and 2 in 15x8, to put on my buggy. I'd like to color the inside in black as the original style. Which kind of black I have to use? Do you suggest to start painting black and after to paint it gray again? Thanks a lot, Davide
Hi guys. Here we are again with a new amazing beetle with our favourite wheels. Take a look at the pics and read the description of Rob:
Here two pics of my '67 Beetle, equipped with 4-bolt Sprintstars. Both front and back are 4.5 J x 15, the front with 165/65 and the back with 185/80-tyres. The production-date stamped in the wheels is 08/69. I've had them blasted and powdercoated in black. The tape-masking and spraying the (dark-)silver I did myself, and I think it looks very good. The car is rather original, except from a 1.6 stock engine, some slamming on the front-axle, front discbrakes, seats from a 1303 GSR, and South-African green-tinted windows with a blue sunvisor in the windscreen and pop-outs in the back. Anyway, a great Volkswagen to me!

Hi guys. New update today. Micke's (I think he's from Sweden, thoughI'm not completely sure about it) sent us a couple of pics of his '71 bug. Let's see what he says about it:
I really love the Sprintstar wheels so i had to purchase a set. 4,5 in the front and 5,5 in the back, they are going to be mounted on my 71 bug with custom fitted old "America bumpers". Will send some new pictures when they are mounted to the car.
Hi guys, this is the time for a new update. You're going to see a '72 beetle from our Dutch friend Bob. I really love this bug, one of the best 12 volts I've ever seen. I love the paint, love the bumpers, and obviously love the wheels. Let's see some pics and a brief description:
This is the '72 beetle I owned until last year. It's fitted with 5,5" sprints all round. the new owner still drives it around this way, he only raised it a bit.
I hope you like it (I still do!) and that you'll put it on your site.
Good morning. Another update, thanks to our Dutch friends. This is Hajee's bus, still work in progress but already wonderful. Let's see the pics and the description of the owner: "My name is Hendrik-jan, my friends know me as hajee. I also have a set of sprintstars for my '64 splitbus.. 5.5's front and rear; the rear is still stock so they don't fit yet, until my straightaxle kit is mounted... the bus is still"under construction"but hey, here some pics.."

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.
