Crazy question but i have to ask.

I currently run torque thrust type M's on my '67. 17 x 8 all around with 235/45-17's up front and 275/40-17's in the rear. I like the wheels and the way they look but here is the issue. My plans are to replace my hotchkis leafs with a 4link rear like the g-bar or the prodigy bar, mini tub and put some 315's out back. To do this i need at least an 11" wide rear rim.

Is there a way to widen the wheels i have now? Can American racing do this or can someone else? I hate to have to sell this entire set up and get something else as i really don't want to loose the money.

Re: Crazy question but i have to ask.

Yes there is a company in Michigan I think that does it.....go to and search for the name. I had it saved under favorites, but have since lost it. I run the 315/35/17 on an 11" wide rim with mini tubs and a prodigy bar. YOU WILL LOVE THIS! If you have not yet, switch to some DSE control arms or a similiar brand. My car handles great! Talk to Frank at Prodigy, he will steer you in the right direction.

Or just call American Racing, and ask them if they will replace the rim hoops?
They did once for me when I had a big chunk missing out of a rim. I was much cheaper than replacing the entire rim.

Weldcraft is the name of the company you're talking about. Give them a call. Here's the link.
