Title: wheel widening
Post by: rvamaxima on March 06, 2017, 09:46:18 AM
I have a friend looking to " re barrel" (not sure if that's the correct term) his wheels for wider tires. Anyone know of a shop that widens 3 piece wheels locally or not?

 A previous co-worker split off and started a franchise I believe called "Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists" In Richmond, not sure if they do widening or not I have heard of "weldcraftwheels" in Michigan that do it.

 Why wouldn't he try to get the original wheel manufacturer to make an inner barrel ? Do they want too much ? I know CCW wanted to much to justify doing it for me.
