Yes, i have a set of 17x7 1/2 steel territory rims that i want to get widened to 9 inches in sydney if possible. Spoke to Waggin about where he got his done and they said they dont do 17's. Any ideas would be helpful. The reason i need this is that i have just purchased a set of 275/40/17 Mickey Thompson Drag Radials in the search for 12 sec quarters. Was told that they will not fit on an 8inch rim and need a minimum of 9inches.

might have trouble getting someone to do the territory rims as the center forms a part of the outer bead then the rest of the rim welds to this .
bit hard to explain but if you look at the rim the center isnt welded in.
