    I learned about this guy in California that makes new wheel rims, I learned about him on the Hamb. I called and spoke with him about putting my wide5 centers on 8" wheels and he can do it no problem.
    I lost his telephone number. Can anybody help me out here with a number?
    Thanks, Oj

    I'll give them a call but don't think they are the one I spoke with. I went to their website and these guys specialize in wire wheels. The guy I spoke to made the outer wheel part and you added your own inner. He had a special wide5 outer wheel hoop 8" wide and he could weld my centers into them on a fixture.
    I'll give Rally America a call later today due to time difference.

    I got to give one of these guys a call about installing original wheel centers in new 16" wheel hoops. I bought a hoop but need a press, it's an interference fit from what I gather. If anyone has had experience pm me

    I'd like to know what these guys are charging. My original hoops are thin. I have since found a good set of wheels. But would hate to pitch the other set

    Years ago I had the Wheel Kids Father build me some 16X7 inch rims using my early centers. They were straight and true. They are running today on the rear of a 32 RPU I fabbed and sold to Dale Grau/The Wild Turkey on the HAMB.

    Rally America, mentioned above, does an outstanding job. They were out of action for quite a while following a shop fire, but I'm glad to hear that they're back up and running. I recommend them highly.

  8. "Wheelkid" from Rally made wheels for me using my 16" ford centers with their hoops. Did a great job

    Agreed. If they're back at it, they're the guys. Well, the guy I think.
