    Does anyone know of a wheel shop in Texas that still has the ability to weld a old center section into a new narrow hoop? I know there are wheels for sale on this site but I am having difficulties finding the wheels I am looking for.
    Thanks in advance

    It wouldn't necessarily have to be a wheel shop to do what you want, although that probably would be best, as they are most familiar with what's required. But any decent sized machine shop could remove, lathe cut to size if necessary, the wheel centers you want to use, press them in and weld them, just like a wheel specialty shop would do.

    Southwest Wheel in Dallas used to do it, not sure if they still do, but worth looking into.
