Very nice. If you don't mind me asking, how much do they charge for widening? I had a great experience with Wheels America straightening some Boyd wheels in the past.

Price to widen and refinish the back wheels was $500.
To refinish the front wheels was $260.

Do you happen to have any pictures of the inside lip of the stretched wheel looks like? I would like to see how noticable it is.

That looks great. And a fair price as well.

I'll have to take some pictures of the wheels from the outside looking in...I don't recall them being too noticable and these wheels do run true I'd imagine my camera angle gives the un-even look.

My next idea is custom milling some 18" replica wheels just scaled up versions of 17 Inchers. Then I can fill my wheel well like I want to.
