Default New Drag rims on Greg Welds all around :)!!!

Well it took a **** load of grinding but I finally got them on and the calipers still look plenty strong. Springs still need to settle a bit and Ill be picking up some drag shocks and brakes in the near future to finish it off.
What do you think?

Well these are a tons lighter than my prostar/MT DRs set up so I assume there are some gains to be had by switching besides looks. Also you reduce the weight of the rear caliper too..lol
Tom I like the lettering also! It stays!!!

On a side note what rear brakes are you running AC? These wheels fit very well with LT1 style rear brakes (atleast the 15x10 4.5 bs) which is what I switched to for ease of fitting...
