Weld RT-S Wheel & Tire Kit
Bolt on a set of these 1979-1993 Mustang Weld RT-S wheels for a great looking wheel that still serves it's purpose on the drag strip! Weld has long been known as the leader in Mustang drag racing performance. The RT-S S71 wheel has become the standard for what racers look for in a drag wheel.
Weld Quality Construction
The Weld RT-S S71 features a 5-spoke design that's reminiscent of the classic Weld wheels. These 3-piece modular wheels have a polished face with a polished lip that's sure to transform the look and feel of your Mustang. These wheels utilize a forged billet center with cold forged rim shells for strength and durability. These light weight 3-piece wheels can handle a hefty 1,580lbs per wheel and 3,160lbs per axle.

Tires Built For The Drag Strip
The rear wheels in this kit come mounted with a pair of 275/50/15 Nitto NT555R drag radials. Nitto designed this tire to improve launch performance and achieve a balance between dry performance and occasional street use. The front wheels come mounted with 165/80R15 Cordovan Classic tires. These tires provide less drag for faster trap speeds. This radial tire has a 3 groove straight tread design with tight spaced blocks for quiet operation. While these tires are D.O.T. approved, we do not recommend daily driving on these. They are fine for a trip to and from the track.
