watch out for this lil fiesty number.. :lol: kidding!

havent heard of anybody chopping a BA/BF rim and wideing them.. would look tough a 10 inch wide GT rear rims.. 8-) ... not too sure of the roadworthyness of doing that job or engineering hassles with RTA about it.... -if thats what you mean...

Steel wheels are pretty straight forward to widen.
Alloy wheels would be pretty much impossible to do properly by an average welder in a typical workshop, mainly because introducing heat via welding would greatly reduce the strength and introduce stress fractures. They would need to be x-rayed before being put on a car.
