    Thread: Help on sourcing rims please and thanks.

    1. 10-06-2012 04:44 AM #1





      Hey fellas,

      I am looking to get a set of widened steelies for my dub. I love the look of this style and am wondering where I can get them (Canada). I have had no luck finding this particular style for sale.



      Cheers and thanks for the help.

      1. Buy normal steelies
      2. Take to wheel repair shop.
      3. Cut and weld in new barrels

      Any good wheel repair or welding shop should be able to widen a set of steel wheels for you.
      I wish I had a cool car.

      Now, do you want the rest of the wheel too? Or just the rim? Or do you already have a rim and need a job done on it?
