I was looking at making two of them 5" wide instead of 5.5". If I were to do this, making a 5.5 to 5 would be the way to go. I looked into a place that made blank rims, but the id on the 15" wheel they make is 12.4" and my centers come out to a little over 13". Damn. I'll have to make a call to a buddy machinist.

@Fpcopo VS would you just sell two of them??

Moving wheel centers is fairly easy for a machine shop. The weld bead lengths on the rim are measured, chuck the rim in the lathe place, lathe cuts the welds from the center to rim away, the center is moved into the new position , checked for run out with a dial indicator, tack welded and rechecked again for run out then the weld beads are done to the original lengths.  I tried to do an old rim for the hell of it at my friend Rand's machine shop, it's an acquired skill and I was cursing left and right as Randy laughed   :~)

FpcopoVS That is very kind of you.  Here is the nearest one: 4651 Mission Gorge Pl, San Diego, CA 92120  Would be shipping to 6555 El Cajon Blvd ...San Diego 92115   

Thank you,


Fpcopo VS 

I guess I should ask... Is the offset correct on these wheels to fit a JPS.  The rear trailing arms have been chopped 1.5 inches.  Also.....I am thinking about building a engine w 82 Stroke and 92 bore.  How do you like your 2110?  You can PM me if you like so I dont hijack this thread.
