There are literally thousands of parts and tricks we can use to make our cars go faster at the track. Weight savings is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but saving weight in the right area of the car can make surprising improvements in your ET’s. We test a set of GT500 18×9.5s versus Weld’s 18×4.5 RTS wheels.
