As it says I need 9.5 or wider wheels to mount drag radials on as they don't make the smaller tire sizes anymore. I can't find any places around here to widen the stockers. Open for ideas, I can't spend a lot on them.
Thanks

Gene,

There are some companies that make their wheels in blanks that can be drilled. I dont really know which ones do though. I heard this from someone. But I can do some research for you. Or you can contact Assanti or HRE and tell them what your looking to do and see of they have any color defects. Its worth a shot.

I just had my rear wheels done (+1") so I could mount 275/40 PS2s without the carcass distortion that the stock wheels cause.

They're on the car now with no issues whatsoever! :yup:

James Reading is the guy you need to talk to.

Also, to get a 9.5 wheel on the rear, you'll need spacers so the wheels will clear the forward suspension links. Fred Goeske at WheelAdapter.com is who you'll need to talk to about them.

he is the one that made my spacers. Very good price also. I think I paid $60 each and he takes paypal. Made them the day I called and had them in three days.
