widened wheels

Here are my rear wheels widened from stock 9" to 10.5" done at Weldcraft in Michigan. Side by side with the stock front 8" wide wheel. I had them finish the inside of the wheel as they are going off for chroming.

Looks like they did a great job. What tires will you be running with those?

Good question since these are going to be show wheels and I have the other 11" wide with 9.5" fronts for racing, so likely Invos will be OK. Not sure whether 315 or 305 yet.

Great looking weld. CNC perfection. They will look real good with 315 Nittos.

It is best to ship from Niagara Falls NY or somewhere in USA, Canada shipping is way too much! Cost to ship was $25 a wheel.
Widening was $275 per wheel
Finishing welds inside of rim was $75 per wheel
Return shipping to NF NY was $27 per wheel
HST was $102 at the border

The gas to to do all this - PRICELESS - we are still getting screwed at the pumps!

Thanks the wheels are nice looking that's why I grabbed them. I saw many aftermarket wheels and GM did a sweet design but not wide enough. Still a month or so away from project "high HP show & go vert"
