Default Weld Drag Wheels Now Available & In Stock For the 2010 SS!!

Guys I'm proud to announce that Weld has now finished up the RT-S series wheels for the 2010 Camaros. We test fit the production version yesterday & I have to say these things are absolutely awesome! I also have to say I'm pumped up about how much cheaper these things are than the other drag wheel combos out there!

We've got a intro special going for all of you guys right now & even have black face & polished face wheels in stock!!

The wheels on our shop L99 car are the polished version, but we also have a black face option as well! The car in the pics have Hoosier 28" rears & M&H front 28" skinnies! This car lost 130# from swapping the GM 21" wheels to these Welds! If memory serves me correctly the fronts were 32# & the rears were 45#!




Here's the Link:

Here's some data:
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 unique wheel offers 3 mounting pad heights to clear specific drum and multi-piston opposed calipers. Target applications for this wheel include cars from the 1950's through today's challenging modern applications such as the 4th generation Camaro/Firebird, C4 to C6 Corvette, 2010 Camaro, and the Cobra Mustang.



SAE J2530 Aftermarket Wheel (Street) Standards
Center is available in polished or black anodized
Wheel widths from 4.5" to 18" with a wide variety of back spacings
Load rating of 1580 lbs per wheel (3160 lbs per axle)

Here's a few pics for you guys to checkout!:

Update, looks like 13.2 pounds saved per side.

Stock Rear Wheel/Tire @ 67.4 lbs with lugs


RT-S Rear Wheel with 295/45/17 Mickey ET Radial @ 54.2 lbs with lugs


That's 13.2 pounds rotating mass per rear wheel saved, the fronts will be much more. Not too shabby considering it's much wider rubber, and the weight is MUCH more centrally located then the stock monstrosities. Shame I cant run 15s, but these HUGE brakes... LOL

Z06 brakes on another vehicle.....As long as they fit over the Z06 brakes they can make them in any backspacing/offset correct?

They can make them how you want, but Weld, not Texas Speed, can guarantee the fitment of "custom" sized wheels that they have not tested at their facility! If you ordered a custom backspacing and such, and it didn't work, they won't take them back.

Received my new weld wheels yesterday and they look great. Just a heads up to those waiting on them, the stock lugnuts are to big in diameter to fit these. Pepboys has some mcgard ones that fit.Also you need a 7/8 thinwall socket.

DOH!!! I guess I had better measure correctly then and hope I get it right...If they know what the wheel's pad height needs to be for a certain brake application then I'm sure they would get that part right. And since the distance from the hub mounting flange to the outside edge of the caliper doesn't change the only thing changing is the backspacing/offset correct?? So if I know the backspacing/offset I need for any given wheel width then I should be fine....Am I wrong??
