I remember asking about the wheels when you 1st built the car , think you were very lucky it did not happen before this

Wheels and studs take an amazing amount of stress over the years. I saw a whole wheel center break out of a rear wheel on a Stock class car in Norwalk during the IHRA days, An original Crager Super Trick suddenly cracked & started leaking air while parked in the staging lanes in Dinwiddie, VA and another newer brand had a reputation for being very light but cracking in shorter periods of time.

Drag cars create a lot of stress while accelerating and braking going down the track. But it would be an interesting scientific test to see how much contributing stress and damage is caused by the turning involved in getting on and off the track and in the pits despite traveling much slower. Can't forget about the 2,000 - 4,000 lb vehicle weights and spool-locked rears!

I remember seeing a 1966 or 1967 Impala break all five driver side lug studs with the stock nuts on them off doing a dry hop after the burn out behind the line at the old Irwindale 1/4 mile track years ago using stock steel wheels, mess that 1/4 panel up puke

The M/T Pro5's haven't been made for a few years now. The Billet Specialties Dominators look identical to the Pro5 fronts.
