2013 Beadlock Wheels?
 
I've heard the "Big Show" fuel teams are switching to a new rear wheel for 2013 and are going to need to sell off the older beadlock wheels. Anyone know if this is true? Thanks,

TF & FC are required to run SFI Spec 15.4 wheels Jan 1 of this year.

SECTION 18: TOP FUEL DRAGSTER, TIRES & WHEELS: 5, WHEELS (Page 7)
Front wheels meeting SFI Spec 15.2 mandatory. Beadlock 16-inch rear wheels mandatory, beginning Jan. 1, 2012, rear wheels meeting SFI Spec 15.4 mandatory; inner bead minimum 14 3/4 inches (+/- 1/8-inch). Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, a) All wheels must be drive hub type and must mate with required drive type hub.

Here is a pretty good explanation of the difference between 15.3 & 15.4 wheels.

Many Pro Stockers are already using the Weld Delta 1 wheel. One driver/owner at Indy told be they are $10,000 per set. "And I bought 10 sets" he said.
