Im looking to widen a set of BBT Sprint Stars. Was planning to rebarrel them but when I did some measurements found that centres are 13 3/8
The VW centres are 12 5/8 so any of the barrels used to widen the stock smoothies wont work. Ive looked at new blank 15 barrels but the only ones Ive found that are 13 3/8 are from New Zealand, so shipping to North America is cost prohibitive. Anyone know of a domestic 15 wheel that have a 13 3/8 centre? Figured Id asked before I go slogging thru the snow at the wreckers.

Check out the saw blade steel wheels off of the last generation of Chevy s10s . Not sure of dimensions but that's what my buddy used to widen my empi sprintstars.
