Yeah. I wish Weld made some RTS's for us. I called them and they said nope.

Yep Weld owns CCW now. John Purner makes primarily road racing wheels. I talked with him since he did the original skinnies for the Vipers back in the 90s. He can only use the Corsair line and has sent a set out for test.
18x6 fronts and 18x9.5 for the back with and M&H tire package. I wanted a 11" rear and he is working with Razors Edge on a shorter sway bar link so 18x11 will work. I'm waiting to see if that will work. The Corsair line looks better in a bigger dia. My main goal is lighter!! with more traction. I'll run a 225 60 18 front with the 305 45 18 MT rears. Much more sidewall with the 18" dia wheel.

Cheaper than a set of Welds, if they made a fitment for us. $3300 a set with powder coating.

I've read this with interest but I admit to being confused. Whats the point of the skinny fronts?
For Drags, narrower tire less rolling resistance, lighter tire and wheel = reduced rotating mass. FASTER!

Rotational mass has more impact that static mass. So heavier wheels spinning weigh a lot more than lighter wheels spinning than just their (static weight). If that makes sense.

HHp has a shorter link already I installed them on my Charger and a set of 17 inch tires fit beautifully on the rear.
