Anybody who's narrowed Clod rims for single duallies look!

Post by Mikey007 » Mon May 31, 2004 4:29 am

Hi guys, I have searched high and low and all I can find is the post by Zbigbadwolf, and Adam F. I want to do it how Shagrat69 and Adam F did it. I think I have an idea of how its supposed to work but want to make sure.

Also anyone use already narrowed clod rims? I have my rims narrowed on the inner and outer edges for my stock clod tires, and it seems that in the pics Adam F posted I would need stock rims?

I remember Shagrat had a great post but it seems to have gotten deleted with the old board. Any help is appreciated.

Mike

I started with a brand new set of rims and cut them into 3 peices and glued them back together.

I used the shag method, but took it one step farther and came up with this:

They are a little narower, the tires fit great! I haven't had a chance to run them yet, but it looks like they will work great!

Thanx alot for the posts fellas! Shag you don't know how helpful that was for me!! Thanx alot bud! :D They are so clean and well put together!

I was looking at my double narrowed clod rims and I will have to get new rims in order to do this, which is great cause I have some other ideas.

We should sticky this for future reference, as there doesn't seem to be anything that describes this method anywhere else.

I like how your rims look Unruley, that is what I'm going for! The ultra narrow rim. :twisted:

Thanx as well Adam F I appreciate the help!! Nice rig also! 8)

hey thanks guy's!!! :oops: :D :D

BTW i was really tryin to keep the stock bead on the outside of the rim for the cleanest look. it would be very simple to just cut more off the back of that piece and the inner rim part to make it skinnier and still keep the clean look of the stock bead. i only went to this size cuz thats the way it came out and they work real good. alittle skinnier wouldn't hurt tho. i also think that this way would work real good with chrome rimz too. and if you leave the bead on the front it would look like stock almost. good luck guy's and remember that other then a dremal, a file is the most important thing to use when makin these. it makes everything nice, clean, and level!!

Shag....

I don't know where I put the rag at, but it was some time around '90 or '91.... I'll have to track down the issue.
