These guys will be able to help you. Theyre in Brissie. Shouldnt cost more than $280 to modify your supplied rims

When they weld the new band on, they can keep the same backspacing as the original size stockies or whatever. Is this for a road car?

will look tuff if you run fats on the back but wont it handle like s**t with a 4" rim?

Im running the standard 6" stockies on the front with 195 tyres and widened 7" stockies on the rear with 235 tyres....... looks good. I might try to widen the rears to 8" depending on clearance and 245 tyres will look better :)

4" on the front 10" on the rear. Good for a drag car and nothing else. Only idiots drive on the road with a combo like this.

For drag use the steel rims are heavy.
