I was wondering how much it would cost to have the rear impala ss rims widened to 10 inches, anyone ever had it done in New England? i think a widened rims refinished and clearcoated would look sick.

i saw this on an impala forum

I think "Rim Pro" in Billerica could probably do that for you. They repaired a totally mangled pair of Cragar rims for me a couple years ago and they came out totally mint and balanced true... Smile

Rim Pro is expensive, but their work is top notch. My brother had an Impala wheel done there that was all banged up, came out awesome, it looked factory new.

Many of the high end dealerships around here (BMW, etc.) take bent wheels brought in by customers, send them out to Rim Pro, get them back, then upcharge the customer twice what Rim Pro charged the dealership.

I only paid 100 bucks a wheel. and that included the dismount, repair, and remount. I thought that was pretty fair.

I think my brother paid 150-160ish to have one wheel straightened, a bad curb dent repaired, and the whole thing refinished. Someone was telling me they went up on the prices recently, so that might be why???
