    I've researched this and it looks like it should run around $200 - $300 per wheel to widen them to 11". I really like the SS 10-spoke wheels and am dying to slap a 315/35/17 DR on the back....this seems like the best way to accomplish it. I did a search on LS1tech and found a few pics of widened wheels and they look great.

    I couldn't justify spending $500 on having them widened.
    I sold the stockers and picked up a set of TTII's. Basicly the same cost after selling the stock ones off.

    They do look good though. I liked the stockers, but I don't regret my purchase.

    I don't know about the C6 wheels...

    But tomzwheels is probably one of the better place to get the TTII's.

    Not sure of the process but I think they add the new metal to the inside. I'm assuming they use some sort of plasma cutter, cut your rim in half, add the new metal, and weld it all back together.

    why could you not put some kind of spacers between your hub and rim which would make it a lil wider..just a suggestion??? there has got to be a cheaper option because 200 a piece is freakin nuts

    spacers will not change how wide the wheel is just put it out more. and if you look at some of the wheels out ther 200 isnt bad, the tt2's are almose 300 each. any way you go its alot

    TT2s are not that much if you shop around. Tomzwheels just sold me 2 17x9.5 and 2 17x11 with tires for a total of 1300 I belive they quoted me right at 900 for just the wheels
