I was wondering if anyone knows where to source some really wide steelies, 8 - 10 inches with zero or neg offset. If not, does anyone know places that do steel wheel widening and an estimate on price?

Mob called RACE engineering used to be Sumner Park used to do it, they moved a couple years ago though
Saw some?! Advertised on Secret Drift forum by member "milan"in chermside, but they look "orrible! 15x8 and 15 x 10 with some sort of riveted on silver pizza dish. Typical drift monkeys!

It's a real bummer since they were in stock 11 weeks ago, very, very frustrating.

Try the other guys i mentioned.
Other possibility, if you have a set of stocko steelies, maybe these other guys can cut off the outer, and weld in wider bands, used to be a very common practice many years ago, ie in days of EH Holdens!
I even had a set of 5" stockos redone to 7", deep dish, lloked ok on my ld 1600, in early 1980's !!
I got a clean set of 5" 240z steel rims, always toyed with the dea of banding them to 8", then whack on some original hubcaps, for that "sleeper" look.

Do you have any idea how expensive the widening is?

What wheels would be good to start off with? Also need to find a place in Sydney that does it.
Just the other day I looked up Diamond Racing Wheels and was very surprised by the price. Lots of width and offset options, just freight would be a kick in the nuts.
Seem popular in the states.
