    Anyone have the Summit cast aluminum wheels on anything? I'm considering either the Warrior RT or the Halibrand looking version...4" front / 8" rear (5.5 bs) on a 69 Dart.

    Thanks!

    15x4 and 15x8 Warriors on the Duster. Decent wheels for the $, but shocked how much heavier they are than the forged Draglites I've got now. My opinion? Keep your eye out for a set of Draglites/ProbStars or Auto Drags used, give em a real good polish and you've got a WAY higher quality, lighter and stronger wheel for about the same $ as 4 Summit brand wheels would cost ya!

    Nice Duster! Love that color combo.

    Your opinion? Yea, maybe. You have valid points, but the 15 x 8 with a 5.5 BS is pretty rare on the open market. I've yet to see any, in fact. Therefore I'm just weighing options when the front suspension is done and it's on the ground. I was originally going with black steelies and dog dish caps, but might want some "bling"...LOL!

    I'll probably wind up with both, steelies and aluminum wheels for when my mood changes again.

    Curious: What is the BS of your rear wheels on the Duster??

    :D

    How they doin for ya? I liked the style of those wheels. Draglites are light as heck, but everyone's got em. And they are a PITA to polish out if they've been neglected! :banghead:
