When it comes to racing wheels for your street or strip car, we all want lightweight, strong, and good looking. The Weld Racing brand has been around for a long time and the company has a new line of wheels that come in fitments for just about any vehicle called the Weld Racing RTS series wheels. Weld says that these wheels are appropriate for anything from cruising, to drag racing, and autocross.
There are sizes and backspacing to clear just about any brake system out there and the wheels are machined out of 6061 forged aluminum alloy. The RTS wheels can be had in widths up to 18-inches and up to 20-inch diameters. Weld claims the RTS series are lighter, stronger, and faster than any other wheels on the market today.
Weld Racing brings its application flexible racing technology to the street with a budget friendly 3-pc modular wheel using a unique welded assembly process. This wheel has the classic Weld Racing 5-spoke star look and continues the Weld Racing tradition utilizing a forged billet center and cold forged rim shells. This wheel offers 3 mounting pad heights to clear specific drum and multi-piston opposed calipers.
This set they made for me is 10 inches wide. I am running Nitto NT05 Tires on the front and NT05R tires non the rear. The Nitto NT05 tire is a max performance tire that provides precise and responsive handling and performance. It has a continuous center section, plus large outer shoulder tread blocks that provide consistent contact with the road for a high-level of dry performance.
