Weld Racing Wheels

Hey guys,

I have been struggling for over a year running Mickey Thompson at street tires at the strip. They are very inconsistent when it comes to using s 5 speed and ready to switch to some slicks and skinnies. I have seen a few pics of the weld wheels on some cars but need to know full specs if anyone has them? The backspace and pad height to fit 15" in the rear.

Thanks,
Dereck

I just bought a set of Weld wheels for mine 15x10 7.5 Backspace medium pad talk to [email protected] Performance he will set you up.

Everyone I talked to running Weld wheels on an IS300 were running those specs and everyone said the same they don't fit great but it works if you want to fit a big tire

Never had an issue with the 15x10's I run out back. But my rear fenders are rolled. They're Race Star, Dark Stars, 15x10 7.25"

What size tire are you running? Do you have a picture of the fitment by chance?
