Greg*: Any chance you actually saw the wheels after they had been cut apart but before the wider section had been welded in? The reason I ask is I'm wondering how thick the wheel rim itself is. If you were to hazard a guess, what would it be? 1/8-3/16", maybe more?
We never had a chance to see the wheels when they were being modified. I would be afraid to guess the thickness. Eric at Vaughn Machine did the work if you want to give him a call.

Any issues with the wheels so far? Seriously considering going this route. I didn't read back through the posts but I believe I recall you were going to do something to alleviate some minimal rubbing? Thanks,
