This Camaro ZL1 features a set of WELD S79 and WELD S79 Beadlock wheels, alongside a set of Mickey Thompson drag radial tires
Built for one of the best street-legal drag racing event organizations out there – Street Car Takeover – this gorgeous Fire Orange Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 packs a mighty punch & is equipped with a set of WELD S79 three-piece forged drag racing wheels.
At the hearing of this beast is the powerful LT4 engine, displacing 6.2 liters. It is the second most powerful engine ever offered in a regular-production Chevrolet. By utilizing a 1.7L Eaton R1740 TVS supercharger, which spins at up to 20,000 rpm, the engine delivers some impressive horsepower. The supercharger is able to generate more than 9 pounds of boost and help produce 640 horsepower and 630 lb.-ft. of torque. Perfect for those runs on the drag strip, isn’t it? Naturally, all that power is useless unless you can transfer it to the surface properly.
In turn, this Camaro ZL1 features a set of WELD S79 and WELD S79 Beadlock wheels, alongside a set of Mickey Thompson drag radial tires. The end result is a wheel and tire combination that affords the driver behind the wheel of this American muscle car, ample traction and great performance on the drag strip. After all, that’s what we all are looking for in a vehicle like this.

Truck & offroad wheels, drag racing and good times
This year’s SEMA Show marked a great one for WELD Racing Wheels. We’ve revealed several new drag racing and truck products, won some awards and created a buzz that will echo throughout the wheel world for months to come. Thanks to our uncompromising approach to wheel design, engineering, and production, we’re recognized as the top wheel manufacturer for both racing teams and amateur competitors alike. Furthermore, our brand new WELD Offroad & WELD Forged wheel series marks our entrance into the offroading and truck world that is set to enhance this market segment even further.
These are the wheels revealed at this year’s SEMA Show: WELD F74, WELD F75, WELD F76, WELD F77, and WELD F78 truck & offroad forged wheels. Furthermore, we had a preview showcase of our upcoming WELD flow formed truck wheel lineup, but more on that soon.
The show saw two awards given to MW Company (the parent company of WELD Wheels) for advancements in new product design & engineering. WELD also received an invitation to several high-profile international events, where our brand new wheels will be presented to a wider international audience in the forthcoming months.
Furthermore, in order to give our customers, dealers, and fans a better look at our new wheel designs, we held a private showing event at the Speed Vegas racing venue. In turn, this gave everyone attending a first-hand experience of our new wheels. This included private showings of our brand new truck & offroad forged and flow-formed wheels, but also, it have the interested parties a chance to test them on various high-performance and luxury vehicles. Naturally, finger food and good times prevailed throughout the event. It’s safe to say that dragging everyone away from the packed SEMA Show booth floor was a success and that everyone in attendance had a great experience.
