    Weld Wheels files for Bankruptcy

    This is on my local board. Thought I'd share.

    Weld Wheel Industries, a Kansas City maker of high-performance automotive wheels, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this morning and plans to sell its assets.

    The 21-year-old, family-owned business said it lost $1.1 million in the first six months of this year on net sales of $21.8 million. The abbreviated bankruptcy petition did not break down Weld Wheel’s debts, but said that the company has total assets of $31.6 million.

    The bankruptcy documents stated that Weld Wheels has signed an asset-sale agreement with American Racing Equipment Inc. in southern California. Terms of the sale were not listed.

    Yea I was gonna order some the other day but come to find out nobody has them. So I just ordered some Holeshot Holestars. I had to get them custom made for 7.5" backspacing. They will be in in 2 weeks. Also ordered some et streets to go with them and they are being shipped to me mounted, balanced, and rim screwed.
