creative LS wheel ideas

Does anyone have any ideas on cool ideas for the LS wheels? I pulled mine off after 500mi of having the car, but I thought there might be some cool ideas.

I'd like to custom widen them as Ive always thought the design was cool, just too skinny. I'm curious to know how much that costs..

I've also thought of pulling off the silver ring, respraying it in black, and then adding a thin red outline - so basically the net effect would be a black wheel with a thin red ring.

Part of me feels like you could get a 60's rodder look out of these wheels if you did it right..

IDK, I'm just thinking out loud here. I'm not going to get rid of my set on it now, but just thought of putting these to good use.

Thanks,

The LS wheels are heavy! After changing them out for lighter wheels, I wouldn't put them back on my car. If anything, I would use them as wheels for a flatbed trailer or something else.

I understand. I don't like the fact that mine are just sitting in storage.

yeah...it may be a lost cause. The lack of width is the biggest hurdle. I dont really care what they weigh bc I'd only put them on for looks and for limited time, but oh well, something I'll tinker with...

I was hoping I could do something similar to this, but with the addition of the small red line..
