Wide. So very wide ...

The purpose of widening rims is to give your classic car a better face. ”RESTORE: The goal is better road holding because you can fit wider tires.

At the same time, you leave the original looks of the car intact, which can be important for people with vintage cars and other enthusiasts.

If you mount slightly narrower tires on wider rims you will get the German style. With some cars this looks really good. Widened steel rims are often cheaper than most aluminum rims that you would like in a width that you want. Consider amounts under the 50 e per rim. Powder coating is often optional.

Cheap (20 e per rim) is often expensive, the rim leaks on the weld or can crack.

ATTENTION: rim widening can influence the wheel bearing load. Extreme widening is just as dangerous as impressive.

Consult a professional for good advice. Edwin Gervink, the man behind GVS Gervink Velgen Specials and is such a man. His site makes the whole story clear. The company is located in Borne, but for people who find it too far the rims can be 'brought' and 'collected' by mail.
