    i used to run a set of american racing aluminums and they bent too. i use rock crawler black steel wheels now, cheap and strong as heck, but you have to go 4wpw to get em. i did anyway.

    Weld Racing Wheels are by far stronger than any other wheel on the market. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I looked into weld racing wheels and they are real nice but real expensive.I can get a set of MT classic IIs with caps and lugs for around $500 which is about what I want to spend...Anyone running MT wheels??? How are they??

    Well, it's like they say..."you get what you pay for."

    I have two sets of Weld wheels now. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    16.5 x 9.75 on my '85 K30 and another set of 16.5 x 12's in the shed, waiting for another K30 build up. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    <font color="green">Welds may be strong, but a guy in my club managed to crack one at Pismo. He went to steel and never looked back. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif </font color>

    I have them too and they are great. Not as strong as steel, but strong enough for me. Also lighter than steel.
