Race star wheels on street

Was reading about getting new rims and saw race star wheels but I saw they were only for drag racing is this true?

They are meant for drag racing, but as long as they have DOT approved tires they can be ran on the street.

Soccerluvr4 nailed it again! The Race Star wheels can absolutely be used on the street, as long as they are paired with proper tires. There's a few guys that run the Race Stars full time (street & track), to benefit from using a large sidewall tire on a 15" rim.

If you don't mind sacrificing some handling for incredible straight line traction, then a 15" rim is key!
