Wide Wheels and Tires

Does anyone know a shop that specializes in modification to put wide wheels and tires on a vehicle?

I've put the widest wheels and tires that would fit according to Discount Tire but they still are not the look I'm looking for.

Could you give us the vehicle and tire/rim size you are trying to achieve?? It might make it easier for someone to point you in the right direction. Include what you are currently using - tire size, wheel diameter, wheel width, and wheel backspace will help also, and whether stock or lowered ride height.

Most any body shop can roll fenders for an extra inch or so. Many aftermarket flares are available, may need some body work.

You can also order new rims with different ET/backspacing. Finally you can have your current wheels widened if you have space from the rear of the wheel to the body or shocks/drop links.

I had my rear wheels widened from 9.5" to 11.5" to fit 335s by http://www.weldcraftwheels.com/index-1.html. Couple week turn around, about $250 a wheel and they can add up to 4". That was for aluminum wheels.

There's always tubbing, narrowing the differential and frame rails, maybe back half it.
