I got some corrado steelies widened at Aberta Wheel. Used Chevy rallies and they cut and welded them up. I payed $100 a wheel. They did a great job!

Why not just buy wide wheels that actually look good? Steel wheels are for winter.

I have 16" mini cooper steelies that look like this:

I think they look good just need something wider then 5.5" for the amount of power I plan on putting down.
