Guys, I want to do a minitub and use the 345/19 tires.
I like my Ronal wheels and they do no make them any wider than 10 inch in the 19s. Does anybody know of a company that can make them wider and offset to the inside.
I can't see it being hard. Precision cut in half. add 2 inches of rim section, V cut the edges for fillet weld, weld up and grind out smooth. Balance and check for trueness,
Its is just money.
SOUNDS EASY RIGHT?

I wouldn't recommend doing that with aluminum rims.
Assuming you could get the right offset, if you weld the alum., you will have a high chance of air leaks.

Stockton Wheel apparently widens steel wheels... don't know if they do alum. Look 'em up.

Many ZR1 owners have widened aluminum rims with no problems. There is a place in Texas that does it. It takes 4 rims though to make two widened ones. Time to step up to a nice set of 19" CCW's.:cheers:
