wheel widening

Post by s_moneh on Thu Dec 01, 2011 8:20 pm

anybody know a place that can widen wheels? i may very well want to widen my bbs wheels to give them some lips and to have them as overall "stance" wheels as they r a bit heavy to even bother using at the track

What BBS are they? One-piece or two-piece?

If they're 2 piece, you can just buy wider barrels to go with the faces, and get them set to whatever offset you want.

If they're one-piece, you could try a place that fixes wheels - like Carcone's - but I have a feeling it'll probably just be cheaper to buy a set with the offset and width you want.

Then you're looking custom. Try out some of the wheels refinishing places to see if they can do it for you.

IMO, it's probably gonna be more cost effective to sell your BBS, and buy a different set with the correct width/offset. OR... buy spacers and get flush, but no lip.

thats the thing its nearly impossible finding 5x108 wheels. so if i sell i gotta look insanly hard or go with a custom set which costs tons more.

i wanna do like 17x9's in the front giving me a 1.5" lip
and 17x10's in the rear maybe 10.5''s giving me a 2-2.5" lip i'm cool with those aha but yea i'll give a few places some calls and see what that could run me

You could always get them filled and drilled... BBS with the big centre caps are a good option because they hide the bolt holes anyways. A set of RS would be ideal, then you can pick your width and offset, and it's easy to fill/drill the faces.

At the end of the day it depends on your bankroll, hahaha
