Make sure you see our May '09 issue and check out my official "introduction" article about Project Boss 340, the hatchback 1990 LX Mustang that we're building for the dragstrip.
The Boss 'Stang will be powered by the 343 cubic-inch "Boss 340" stroker engine that has been chronicled in tech articles that appear here on the Web, and of course on the pages of 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords.
One of the points that I bring up in the article is the fact that while I've got a "vision" for Boss 340, that vision does not include which-style drag wheels we're going to go with on the car. Weld Racing Wheels recently sent us a few photos of some of its all-new "RT" Series wheel styles (6 designs in all). Hop over the jump and check them out, then post a comment to let us know which wheel you think will look killer on the project car...
Weld's new RT Series wheels are 3-piece, forged wheels that are designed for late-model, brake-caliper clearance, and fit well on S197 Mustang GTs.
The wheels are stronger and lighter than cast hoops, and surpass both SFI specifications and SAE street wheel standards, which makes the RT Series a true street/strip wheel for high performance applications.
Here's a sample of the 6 designs. The wheels come with either a polished or black-anodized center, in 15” x 4” (front) to 15” x 16” (rear) sizes, with many backspace options and of course a 5x4.5 Ford bolt circle.
I'll tell you what...I'm really digging the black-anodized stuff. I'd like to hear your thoughts...so would Boss 340.
