PostSubject: Widening Rims?   April 6th 2010, 4:43 pm

Does anyone know of a place that will widen rims? I would like to fit a bigger tire on the back of my car without buying a whole new set of rims. I've found a place that does it in Michigan but for what they want to widen them, I can get a full set of 4 rims already the sizes I want.

What I have seen is, unless you can have to done locally it is more expensive to widen rims than to buy new. I am unaware of anyone locally that has experience doing it.

I assume you have 5-lug wheels (don't know much about american muscle). There is endless options for wide wheels out there that are 5-lug. If your someone like me who has 4x4.5(114.3) then it can make some sense since wheel choices are limited.

Well I do have a 5 bolt pattern, but it's a 5x120mm. Which is the same as a BMW. LOL....That really limits the possibilities unless I'm willing to spend some serious cash. Which I'm not.

I didn't even think about Sprockets. We do a ton of business with them at work.

Get in touch with Ryan (Hollywoood) on here. He had two wheels widend 2 1/2 inches but can't remember the name of the place. They do a very nice job!
