17" weld beadlock clear?

17x10 7.2 backspace clear on a 2010 camaro ss that is lowered one inch with trailing arms and toe rods? The tire spins freely in the air with no issue. I'm worried about applying the weight and at launch. Does anyone have a similar setup and have no issues/issues?

i wouldnt do it. weld 17's are intended for oem ride height, BMR sells 2 LCA's that are notched for specifically lowered vehicles. Honestly, it even depends which trailing arm you use as well i have seen those big pfadt trailing arms contact on lowered cars.

You launch with any power and i bet they mangle your wheels. Seen it time and time again.
