Wheel manufacturer Drag Wheels has a penchant for creating truly high performance wheels without the high dollar price tag. Their business is providing the automotive enthusiast with stunning wheels that are lightweight, high quality and a price that wouldn’t stun the money out of their bank accounts. The Drag DR-70 is a wheel that has these Drag foundations cast in every inch of its being.
The Drag DR-70 wheel combines the power and reliability of the classic seven split-spoke formula with a modern twist. The DR-70 is constructed using a one-piece cast aluminum structure making it light and durable. It is available in 17 to 20 inch diameters. It is also available in single and double drilled options.
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. And since the DR-70 is cast as a one-piece alloy wheel, it will definitely be lighter even at a size a tad bigger than stock.
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—another performance benefit when driving on the track. So, it is best to choose the size wisely. Luckily, you’ll have no shortage in options as the Drag DR-70 is available in 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20-inch diameters.
The DR-70 features a twisted seven split-spokes with a Gloss Silver, Matte Black, and Flat Black paint finishes in a rugged machined frame. It also has a sleek, flush-fitting center cap The Drag DR-70 is a perfect wheel style if you're trying to step up your stock car’s style.
