Bought some new shoes for the 007. wheels are 2000 cobra r's. 18x9.5's.



but before i could even enjoy the set, two had to leave and go to weldcraft for widening. Yep 18x11's were in order to fit the tire i wanted to use.



rubber for the fronts is 265-35-18 Michelin PS2'S.



rubber for the rears are 315-30-18 Michelin PS2's.

very nice vic.

I'm actually hoping to do that to my original t-bird wheels one day.
Widen the rear, and make the fronts into skinnies.

Sweet. I have the same wheels in 17X7.5, one has got a crack on the interior lip. Does this weldcraft place fix wheels too?
thanks for the praises guys. :)

going to see car at the end of the week. or worst case scenario bring her back home and finish it up myself.

jesse: yeah the do all kinds of welding. but you would spend way more with shipping included. theres a local place that does welding on rims too. i'll see if i can find a link to it and post it for ya.

How much weight did it take to balance them?

It looks like a nice weld job, but I'm curious...
both front and rears, i would balance them and then break the tires back down and spin the tire in the direction of the needed weight til i achieved 0 weight needed. but on the front i couldnt get it exactly. so i had to add a .25oz.

what might you curious about?

I was just wondering how even the weld was on the widened rims. I.E. how they balanced once mounted.

I've never heard of widening a rim, but they look great.

Any pics of them on the car yet?
