We have the following RaceStar Industries Dragstar polished wheels in stock: 15x3.75"-1.5" backspacing, 15x8"-5.5" backspacing, 15x10"-6.5" backspacing and 15x10"-7.5" backspacing. Our 4 wheel set price for the 15x3.75" & 15x8" is $669.00 and the 15x3.75" & 15x10" 4 wheel set price is $699.00 and we also include free lug nuts (7/16", 1/2" or 12mm) (open or closed), free lug washers, free chrome steel valves and free shipping within the continental US. Each wheel comes with a center cap in the wheel box from the factory. Also, for the month of January we will discount all 4 wheel sets by an additional $20.00 if you call Jim's Racing Tires toll free at 1-800-281-0409 and mention that you are a LS1Tech member or that you saw this posting on the LS1Tech website. Quantities are limited so get them while supplies last.

Now, let me try and set the record straight on the whole Greg Weld/RaceStar Industries Dragstar wheels. When Greg Weld passed away in 2007 the Greg Weld Company went out of business in early 2008. Greg's 2 leading salesmen decided to continue with the Dragstar wheel line and created RaceStar Industries. They took the great looks of the GW Dragstar wheel and redesigned the back half of the wheel so it would clear the large disc brakes on the late model Camaros, Trans Ams and other muscle cars. It took some time to get them right, but it was worth the wait. The RaceStar wheels are a direct bolt on and do not require the use of spacers or grinding down of calipers. These light weight wheels are perfect for street or strip.

i was wondering about the 17x9.5's i love my 15's and was thinking about getting an 2nd set for more street use.... are these even machined yet? or no... any ideas if they will make a wider 17 like 17x11?

Here is a set Greg Welds on my 70 Chevelle. I get a lot of compliments on them. They are super light and clean up easy.

The 17x4.5", 17x8" and 17x9.5" should be available in 2-3 months. Right now the 17x9.5" is the widest that they plan to make.
