Wheel manufacturer Drag Wheels has a penchant for creating high-performance wheels without the high price tag. Their business is to provide us car enthusiasts with pretty wheels that are lightweight, high quality and price that wouldn’t make a run for our money. The Drag DR-21 is one beautiful wheel with a familiar design that car enthusiasts love.
The Drag DR-21 wheel combines the power and reliability of the classic six split-spoke that may have been of Japanese origins. The DR-21 is constructed using a one-piece low gravity cast aluminum structure making it light and durable. It is available only in a 15-inch diameter guise making it perfect for tiny hatchbacks and old school cars which are also of Japanese or European origin.
The reason to want to move from stock to aftermarket wheels is mainly because of style. An aftermarket wheel has been engineered to be lightweight, which is why these see the primary use in motorsports. A lighter wheel reduces un-sprung weight, resulting in faster acceleration and significantly improved handling.
That will bring us to our next point: size. Size is also a factor. A bigger wheel allows space for much larger brake rotors and calipers—usually a must when a car is built to race. An offshoot of a larger diameter wheel is the use of low-profile rubber which has less sidewall flex. So, it is best to choose the size wisely. However, the only size available for the DR-21 is 15 inches so it is best reserved for classic Japanese cars and old European coupes or hatchbacks. The upshot is that the DR-21 will look perfectly at home on a track because of its motorsports-inspired design that hails from Formula 1.
The DR-21 features six split-spokes with Gloss Silver or Matte Black paint finishes in a rugged machined frame. It also has a sleek, flush-fitting center cap The Drag DR-21 is a perfect wheel style if you're trying to step up your stock car’s style. It even includes a snap-in center cap featuring the Drag wheels’ logo.
