two-piece wheels for racing

I have found a set old Cragar S/S wheels. I can see that they are two-piece wheels but they still look really cool. Can I use them on my S-10 drag truck and will they hold together at 400+ hp?

Cool and works is sometimes 2 different things..those Cragers are a good boulevard wheel..get some good track wheels and mount your sticky tires on those..

Just my take

As I recall Cragers are a steel rim and a cast aluminum center. The center has steel chaplets cast into it that are then welded to the steel rims. I also recall they were heavy.

I's look for some Centerlines.
