who does Wheel widening ?

I would like to know who does wheel widening here in the Lower mainland. I'm also probably gonna post over in the Island section because they got some serious shops out there that we may not have here.

by wheel widening I mean the shop taking let's say a 10 inch wide wheel to and making it 12 inches wide. Here's some sample pictures of how they do it. This particular wheel went from 9 inches to 11.

Wouldn't adding the width on the inside barrel increase the chance of clearance problems inboard because effectively, you have increased the offset?

And as previously mentioned, Green's should be able to do it.

yea Green is at the top of my list I just wanted to make sure I didnt miss any other shops that may specialize in this before I call Greens.

yea it will clear no problem, my car comes has a fat ass (bulky fenders) on the stock body the max wheel width you can go with before you have inside clearance issues is 12 inches wide.
