Has anyone here paid anyone like Weldcraft to widen N90s" The new 17 versions. I have notched my frame and have 9.5 rims already, but think I am going back to stockish looking on the outside. Also anyone gone wider with them on the front say at least 9?

I am of no help as far as answering your question but as someone with the 17" n90's i wish they would make them in different widths.

I know Year One makes others in 9. I wish these were at least 9 also. How do yours look?

I'm really happy with mine. Maybe they will come out with some. I might call yearone tomorrow just to see what they say.

Brent - Here is a thread from 2 years ago: http://www.montecarloss.com/community/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1060158&Searchpage=1&Main=110511&Words=%2Bweldcraft&Search=true#Post1060158
200kSS called YearOne to ask this question: "I have the 17" N90's now and have actually asked Year One owner Kevin King about the possibility of making a 9 inch version......request denied. So it's up to an end owner to modify them."
An option many of us would have jumped on, but have gone our own ways....
Maybe they will rethink. Even an upcharge would be cheaper esp after shipping back and forth to Weldcraft, although they do good work there.
Keep us posted.

There is a member of gbodyforum who has a Malibu build going, he had Weldcraft widen his 17” N90’s. I don’t have a link to his posts or pics but he has some on there. So it has been done, not sure if he went to 9” or 9.5”.

I've spoken to Year One recently.......do not hold your breath for N90's wider than 8 inches.

Send them to Weldcraft and get it done. You know you want to!
