Yep,I found a place online but they are on the east cost and would need me to send my rims to them plus $500 to do it. That is why I'm looking for a local shop.

Not when the rims are steel its just a matter of having the tools,not something homer can do at home. You have to have something to hold them during the weld like a drive line has to be done.

You might try giving a call to any wheel repair outfit to see what they do. There are several around Seattle. If not Stockton wheel in Calif. seemed to get high marks when I was googling around. There is another I found in San Fransisco that advertises widening.

Would be cheaper just to buy the wider wheels. $500 - $600 for 4 new ones.

You can buy mine rims 9 x 18 for $600. Hope you don't mind 8 lug. 8 x 170.

Casey, what's with the Cougs?? Sheeeesh!

Good question Tom... I would like to think the Cougs were like a sleeper car just waiting to blow someone off the line that was not expecting to see it coming, but don't think so. Then a couple of red shirt freshmen gets tagged for a little ole grow farm in their apartment. At least the dogs are not having a good go either. The Apple Cup is late this year... in December at Pullman. Hope the Cougs have the home field advantage and icy cold weather they are used to. Even a buddy of mine who is a hard core dog is getting a little worried about our yearly running dinner bet over the Apple Cup.

Of course you know the grow operations happen to every team. I do give the Huskies credit for a good game against USC. I'm glad the game this is later....Let it Snow!!!
