Has anyone widened the factory 17" painted 5-spoke wheels to accomodate a BFG 275 / 40R17 drag radial?
If so, how much do I need to widen it you think??
Thanks...

275 40 17 will fit on the stock rim. I ran them for a year. However they do buldge a little.

I had weldcraft narrow a set for the front. I ended up getting some aftermarket 17x9 for the rear. Weldcraft did a great job. One wheel took .75oz and the other took .50oz to balance out.
