8 or 8.5 cobra 03 wheels

I have Black deep dish 03 cobra;'s all around that are nine inches wide and i rub a bit near full lock which doesnt bother me. However i'm lowering it and i'm afraid of increased rubbing. Does anyone know if anyone sells 8 or 8.5 cobra rims because i liked to keep the rims? if not i once saw in 5.0 magazine of them cutting a 1.5 inch strip out of the front wheels and welding it in the back to widen them, will that be financially possible? Thanks for the help.

03 v6- black 17' 03 Cobra R deep dish wheels, AM short shifter, divorced duals with original 40's, windstar swap, and a tuner!

I haven't seen any termi wheel narrower than 9". I could be wrong though. My 18x9 Saleens rubbed a little too but it didn't bother me. 1/4" spacer fixed the problem but I took them off after a while.

It won't rub too badly lowered. You will spend $400-$500 to narrow two rims and it will take 4 to 6 weeks for a reputable wheel company to do it.

I have 9" and no problem. Mine is not lowered. I'd go with a spacer. Simple solution without many complications.
