Found some other stuff on sizing.


Please could you tell me the following:
1. What sizes will they be availble in 4.5", 5" ,5.5"?
BBT - they will be available in chrome or grey painted version, in 4.5 and 5.5.

2. What is the offset, ET?
BBT - Et will be 25 for the 4.5 and 15 for the 5.5

3. Will they come with caps,valves, bolts?
BBT - Caps and bolts are available separately, but the bolts are the standard VW ones. The valves, you should get at your local tire specialist.

4. Is/will there be a UK supplier? if not what would shipping to UK be?
BBT - We have several BBT distributors in UK, so they will all be able to order the wheels...

I got an email from BBT. They will be coming to the states. I'm in Oregon and they said that ISP West will be the closest dealer to me. There may be others getting them but I don't know. Just thought I would pass on the info.........

Cool! I never thought I would be excited about a repop steel wheel, but these sure look spot on.

I emailed them directly and the answer I got was yes to the four lug, but it will be later in the year. Good news.

Great looking wheels, I want to get a set of the center caps for my OG Sprints. Finally someone has reproduced caps in steel and will fit original wheels.

I heard they were arriving at BBT at the end of January, so literally any time.

UK prices on the chromed rims is currently advertsied as 450 GBP plus taxes per set of 4.

Thanks for the heads up, will keep an eye open for them. Have been calling ISP for the SprintStars but they just told me today that it will be another 4 to 6 weeks before I should try them back. I will look on BBT web site Thanks Again, Peter

The BBT sprint finally arrived at BBT, and were a bit of a let down, it seems. The chrome wheels were all chromed before they were welded, so they all require stripping and re-finishing, where/why/who this falls to, Ive no idea Confused
The painted wheeels, due to be delivered in silver with black detail, all arrived in primer, so again all require refinishing, but obviously its an easier task.
The painted wheels have now been released, and some places have them, KieftennKlok (Holland) had them on the Blog last week and T2D (UK) now have them -

A guy I know has handled the wheels at K'n'K and apprently they are well made and run very true, so are technically made very well.

I understand the price has been reduced to about 80 euros per wheel now, as the finish is as it is. As far as I know the chrome rims will not be released any time soon. BBT's Blog hasnt been updated since Jan 27th due to internet issues, so direct news is slow.

T2D will have some rims, finished, at the UK 'Dubfreeze' show this weekend, so it'll be interesting to check 'em out.

I was under the impression the center and hoop are chromed separately then welded when it comes to steel wheels, right?

Yes, so I understand, but so say the heat was such that the chrome was blued/damaged on every wheel ....
