Who Here Has Had There Stock 20" Wheels Widened?

looking for someone to chime in. I picked up a spare set of wheels and want to send them to Weldcraft to be widened to either 10" or 10.5" to run a 315 drag radial.

My question for someone who has had it done is did you have two front wheels(20x8) widened or s set of rears (20x9) widened?

I would rather have the fronts done i think so then i can use the rears on the front of the car.

What size wheels do you have? Because the stock front 20's will most definitely clear the rear calipers.

Most that have done this widened the fronts, and put them on the back. A few have widened the rears.

Yes they will clear the brakes, but widened 10 1/2 fronts will require spacers. 10 1/2 rears won't need spacers.
