Moving Forward …..
Race Star leads the industry with the all-new 63 Pro-Forged with a 15”x 10”-12”-14” & 15” wheel in a 1 piece configuration. This wheel is the first in the industry to utilize Friction Stir Fusion Welding to achieve the one piece makeup in an all 6061 aluminum wheel. This allows Race Star to give you a wheel with less runout than the competition in a lighter weight wheel. It also means you will never find silicone on a Race Star wheel for you to worry about leaking welds. The technology we use is the same technology used in building a submarine to insure it can take the pressure at depth. This type welding makes the hull of a submarine one piece as it now makes our wheel one piece. Using this technology lets us make the wheel in all 6061 aluminum unlike our competition which uses a softer 5052 hoop/ rim half with a 6061 center welded together with silicone on the welds to help insure the welds don’t leak. We also have utilized this technology in our new 16”x 16” double bead lock wheels for Sportsman, Pro-Stock & Pro-Mod. The 16”x 16” one piece liner wheel which is by far the lightest liner wheel in the industry today, also enjoys the same technology used in its manufacture.
All of our new 15” and 17” 63 Pro-Forged Front Runners are 1-piece configuration. These front runners were put through a DOT J2530 cornering test for street use and passed with flying colors. You never need to worry about a wheel cracking when you make the turn at the end of the drag strip. SFI certification does not require a cornering test on a front runner but we do. We are all about safety in our product at Race Star and it is important we know the customer is safe on every wheel, so we go the extra mile to insure you know and are confident in the equipment you have on all four corners of your car.
Race Star comes with New Bronze color wheels in the 92 Drag Star Bracket Racer, 95 Recluse & 32 Mirage series wheels. Sales began on the new finish in March of 2019 and has been well received. As time goes on we will increase the size selection on this color as demand grows for those current sizes we do not currently stock. The 32 Mirage series has been enlarged with 15”x 6”-7”-8” and 10”wheels along with 17”x 6”-7”-8” and 9” wheels.
