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 :D

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:
