    banded or widened wheels in US? PNW?

    Anybody know if there are any shops on the west coast that will band steel wheels, or transfer faces into wider barrels? Been looking for a while, I'd like to widen a set of x7 spares for my x3

    I believe Stockton is on the west coast. I've used them once before and they did a great job. :tu:

    You can also try Chariot Spring in Fontana California. They build wheels in house and can take 13's out to 9 inches and 15's out to 15 inches wide. I think they charge 120 a wheel now. Haven't been there in a while, but talk to Ray. He's a cool old guy and they have a very very quick turn around.

    Thanks alot! I've contacted the other place, we'll see. It's adding up so far, I'm thinking I might just have to get diamond racing wheels

    Off-the-shelf stuff will always be cheaper than custom. :wink:
