JUST a quick one – I’m noticing a lot of your feature cars are sporting Weld AlumaStars or Magnums.

I love the look these wheels give just about every car they’re on; makes them look fast standing still.

But I’m wondering whether they are okay for street driving, as Weld says they’re drag-only. Are 3.5 to 4in fronts a good idea?

YEP, rims of that type are only meant for track work.

They’re not really designed to contend with potholes and are easily damaged. Most guys running these would have another set of wheels for the street.
