:eek: I havent heard of anyone doing this yet. Actually, I didnt even know people did this. But it makes sense... you have the main part of the wheel, just have them throw on a wider bell... or maybe thats not even how it works. Let us know the process once you get it done. btw, who's doing this for you?

yea i didnt know it was possible until my bro (w/ 95' Supra Turbo) did it to his stock rear wheels..... he now runs a 17x11.5 in the rear with a 315 tire!!! it looks monsterous..... i'm not sure who does it, i have to ask my bro and i'll post..... he had to ship his wheels out to them

what they basically do is cut the wheel in half, insert a spacer ring and weld it.... and thats it.... the welding job they did looked really professional, nice clean weld line....

Price

I went through 2 hookups to get these rims at a considerably lower price than usual... sorry, I won't be able to get this price again... I got the rims (19x8) for $1650 out the door.

This weekend i'm going to slap on some Yokohama Parada Spec2 225/35/19 at a shop nearby at $200 each. Can't wait!

arrgh!

Ro_Ja gave me a slightly different offset in the back.. I'm thinking +37. It has a slightly bigger lip in the back. And it BARELY fits... i felt it rubbing on U Turns. I might have to roll the fenders a little. The front is just right at +45. Other than that.... It's riding smooooth

I will probably have pics on Tuesday as I am going to Vegas tomorrow... and I'll need to take pics once I get a carwash (Haven't had time lately because of rain and ash)

thanks!

thanks for the comments everyone!

yeah I'm looking for a nice body kit to go with my car. I want something suttle... nothing too drastic. You know, nice and clean lines. There's so many kits out there that I have not even begin my research on what to get.
