Welds have been crap for years since they sold the company..many reports of cracks, so make sure they are the orginals. I have ran many cast wheels without problems most are rated as high as Forged..Procomps are good rims..
Production on Weld's stopped when they sold the company to American Racing, and AR never continued with them. Where are you getting your info on the crap wheels?
Weld, however, did get bought back from AR recently. I called and talked to the guy that bought it back and he told me they are only going to produce race wheels, no truck/passenger car wheels. They did buy all the center caps back from AR, so if you're needing some for an old set of wheels better hurry. I just got my back up set last week. $100 shipped to my door w/screws.
