Drag Racing only ?

I just got a set of Cragar front runners . I was honestly contemplating running on the street on my car until I read this stamped on the inside of the wheel . My question was posed to a tire center owner . He couldn't understand why . Neither can I . Can anyone tell me if I still will be able to run these rims on the road ?


Thanks

Drag Racing front wheels are generaly made from lighter alloys to save weight and as they only go down the strip they see less stress and abuse. They do not have the strength to take day to day pounding on the street (pot holes, RR tracks, rough roads, curbing, ect.)

I run them on the street all the time. I am running a 1500 lb T Bucket not a 4000 lb full size car. I think that is the reason, They won't hold the weight of a full size car into a hard turn, it may colapse.

12 years ago it was very popular, in Little Rock, to run aluminum mini-spare wheels on the front. They are DOT legal.
