Anyone want to sell a set of wide rims for a "Herbie" resto I am in the middle of? I know you can send the rims off but I am hoping to just buy a set.

Thanks!!

This guy looks like he sells "new" remanufactured wide wheels:

If you decide to break down and send them off, I used Boltons in CA. I have been very pleased so far. 1.5 yrs later on weekend driver.

I cut the centers and mailed them. The installed new outer blanks. 15x6. They will do basic spray. I had mine powder coated afterwards. They were very reasonably priced for the wide rims and my centers. They were fast as well. This was about 3 yrs back. Here's a some pics.
