Default Who makes custom barrels for 3-piece wheels?

Does anyone have a good shop they recommend to custom fabricate an outer lip (barrel) for a 3-piece rim?

Thanks,
Paul

VRwheels

They may have what you want available. If not they can get it made. They made my custom 9" lipped vs-xx rears.

Wheelflip does as well but I think you have to ship the wheels to them and they do the work. I think I'm gonna re-lip my VS-XX back down to 8.5" wide though and I'll be buying those lips from VR.

You won't be disappointed; VR wheels built a set of VS-XX to my specs on my last 240. They had to have the rear lips custom made (9") but they succeeded, created an AWESOME set of wheels, and had great communication throughout the whole process.

I was looking at Wheelflip. But found a lot of sketch info about various situations online. Dont know if they got their logistics straightened out but their prices are pretty good.

I only wish my auto couture were not so heavy. The lips are obviously very light but the centers weight a lot. I think they are cast aluminum but love the way they look on my car. http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=20922
