Posting a email I just sent to Norm Young, CEO Weld Racing. Curious what you guys think, am I wrong?


Mr. Norm Young,

I just got off the phone with Josh from customer service. First off, I love Weld wheels; we have them on 2 different cars. Next I wanted to bring my situation to your attention. It is well below your scope of responsibility, but interesting none the less.


SITUATION: A little over 2 years ago I purchased a set of Weld Vector RT wheels for my wife’s racecar (we have since stopped racing). The race car was sold (1980 El Camino), but we retained the wheels for her street car (1978 Malibu). In that time Weld Racing discontinued the Vector wheel line.

I contacted Josh in CS, in an attempt to order new barrels for the wheels (correcting for back space). He informed me that this was not possible. He then recommended that I purchase a new of wheels and switch out the centers; then try to sell the wheels I just bought.

I then offered to send my wheel centers in to have a new wheel built around them. He informed me that this was also not possible.

When I asked Josh why this was not possible, His reply was “It’s been that way for 50 years”.


ENDSTATE: I can buy the wheel centers separately, but not the barrel. Nor can I build a new wheel around my centers. Customer service recommendation is that I buy new wheels and then try to sell my nearly new wheels. This doesn’t seem to make much sense for the consumer. We love our Weld Wheels, and I’m not asking for something free. I’ll pay to have the new wheels (barrels) made. I’m asking that you don’t make me spend money twice for the same thing.


Best Regards
Dave Cordle

How long did it take for Arizonagn to build your AC system and ship it? I've been on their waiting list for two months and after talking to him and getting an estimated ship date twice he then doesn't contact me for payment or ship. I'm starting to wonder if he's still building these units. By the way, that's one helluva Malibu you've built for the wife.

Curious, how's the different panels look in person in the light?

I'd always been told that when dealing with metallic colors, if it isn't painted together you see the difference between panels because the flake doesn't lay the same.

Sounded like in your build the car was painted at least 3 or 4 separate times (shell, hood/trunk, bumper).

Maybe it's just that I usually have high flake or tri-coat metallics these days? Just curious.

Once you finish the wife's car toss her your keys and say "your turn, trade back when you're finished"
