The outer bit you want a wider version of, that way they can measure it to the mm.

Maybe I should leave mine as is, they can run a 245 front, and probably a 275 rear as is, then add some spacers to make them sit a little better.

Also, thinking about doing reverse color scheme, a gloss black lip, on a silver face, thoughts?

Like:



Or maybe gloss black lips with satin centers:

Oh guys...................................

Guess who might have some good news Smile

This mob can provide wider lips for most 3 piece wheels, and I believe can also supply wider rear barrel sections, to custom fit a wheel as wide as possible in your guards.

http://www.metalspinnersaust.com.au/metal-spun-wheels.html

This mob can cut and widen 1 piece wheels, not sure if they only do steel wheels or not, but worth a message none the less. Imagine it.... take some Supra stockies, add a spacer, then get them widened to say a 10-11" ?

He emailed me the forms to fill in measurements to get a quote on the lips, but 18" prices are $150-$260 depending on what you want. He was super helpful on the phone, seems like a place that has their shit together Smile

Just an update on this, if anyone is thinking of widening their wheels. Ordered my lips tonight, so here's a cost run down.

Sad Not cheap.

18 x 1" Lips - $165 each
18 x 2.5" Lips - $198 each

Lip polishing to mirror finish - $35 each
Drilling bolt holes - $50 each

So total, inc shipping, lets say $1100 ish.

Yeah that sounds about right.
I paid a touch over $500 for two in 20 x 3.5" delivered, with the extras as you have mentioned.
