who does Wheel widening ?

I would like to know who does wheel widening over there on the Island, I live in Van but I know you got some serious shops out there and I wouldn't have a problem making the trip. Actually lived in Nanaimo for a year, Island chicks like to party way more by the way

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.

if the welds arn't done by a journeyman i'd be a little concerned :P

otherwise should be good, but super ghetto ;P

I don't think there's any place on the island that will do that. You'd probably have way better luck looking south into Seattle.

Would Greens in Vancouver not do that? They are the best rim repair shop in this area of the country so why not give them a call. Plus if they can, it would save you a trip

I'm heading to Greens tomorrow to talk to them.
