Viking in Delaware did it. It took months. I wouldnt let them put wheels on a miscarriage. They also did a crappy job on the powdercoat. I have to get it redone. The welding work is pretty good though. Im going to check the trueness tomorrow.

lasstss....How did the trueness of your wheels turn out??? I'm seriously considering this for rear wheels! :thumbsup:

Just curious - is the powder coat any harder to clean and to keep clean? Looks like it might be. Photos do suggest that they did not do a great job, as you said. But, nonetheless, very impressive!

Wheels were about $300 ea to widen. Powdercoat it a heat set polyester. It is much more durable and harder than paint. It will take a lot more impact. When doing powdercoat, you need an experianced guy to do it. Aluminum and some other metals outgas and it can create bubbles. A good guy can do it right. The silver I used and will reuse was a high metallic silver. One of them is dead true, the other is a touch off on the inside but not an issue.

So it's only widened on the inside? They can't push the lip out so you'll use spacers?

Its 9.5" wide. Fits perfect, no spacers needed.

Please keep us posted on fitment lastss.

With the tires mounted you'll need spacers (and most likely longer studs)... or custom trailing arms (which i've talked to Doug about, but never pursued).
