Weld Racing RT-S Wheels on sale! Free shipping!



Weld Racing's new RT-S series combines multiple performance capabilities with vehicle application flexibility to a level not seen previously in the street performance marketplace. The ability to perfectly complement a 2010 Muscle Car, a 2006 GTO, a classic '32 Hot Rod, a Hemi Super Bee, the ubiquitous '69 Camaro, and any Corvette with the same wheel family is ground breaking, unmatched, and highly desirable. Modern brake packages can be difficult to accommodate with most wheels, RT-S wheels can be selected to complement a 6 piston billet caliper or a 1940's drum brake by selecting one of the 3 available pad heights, so yes, an RT-S will fit your ride. The forged three piece welded-modular construction makes it possible to build a 15", 17", 18", a or 20" wheel in widths from 3.5" to 18", so you have no limits in tire size either. Since the wheel centers are CNC milled forged billet, RT-S offers the strength needed by today's high horsepower cars while making it possible to apply cutting edge designs and finishes. Just like your car, there is nothing like an RT-S wheel from Weld Racing.

18x10
69 offset
8.20 B/S

These are designed to be a direct fit. The tire choice will determine the rest.

Sorry but they don't direct fit very well at all. I expected much better with all the hype.The 17x10 with a 275x40x17 rub very badly. A spacer can help which is what I used this week but there was still some rubbing. I'm planning on getting a GForce shock extender to see if it will work without the spacer. As for the front, my 17x4.5 skinny with a M&H tire is pushed out so far that it is directly under the fender ... not tucked behind like I expected. I'm dropped an inch in front so it was a total no go and am going to have to raise the suspension back up. Then I'm going to have to find a way to make sure that the fender can't hit the tire if I lift the front when I launch. I am totally amazed that I can put a 245 tire on a 8 inch wheel and it tucks behind the fender but a much narrower tire on a 4 inch wheel doesn't.

For that kind of coin I would be pissed. 69mm offset is way inboard.

My 17 x 10s with 275/40/17s rubbed very badly as well. They had pretty severe rubbing on the inner fender well and were slightly touching the rear shock. I hammered the sh*t out of the inner fender well and I'm pretty sure I created enough room there. It seems to be just slightly rubbing on the shock now but I have some spacers on the way from gforce which I'm hoping will solve that issue. Rear suspension is completely stock.
