4:10's and an auto is too low for freeway driving. I'm switching back to 3:73's.

My son will be my co pilot, but if you can talk him out of the seat for a spin it's fine by me.

It's perfectly safe when done correctly and Eric Vaughn is the best by far.

I'm curious a lot of people on here say it is a REALLY, REALLY BAD IDEA! One guy said his rim ripped apart from the weld at high speed and he flipped his car and nearly died!! People say why widen it ? when u can buy a rim that was designed from the ground up to be wide?? I'm really curious !

Go to the website and read how he does it. No one else uses his method. They will never fail. If you can find wheels you like in the style/size/offset that works for you by all means, buy them. If not, this is a perfectly acceptable way of getting what you want.

Precision widening and narrowing of Aluminum, 1 and 2 piece automotive wheels. Diameters of 14" thru 22" and widths of 4" to 15" can be accommodated.


All work is performed personally by Eric Vaughn to guarantee top quality.


Narrowing is performed by removing width section, machining the 2 remaining pieces to interlock together, and welding back together using our special automatic rotary welder. Cost = usually $150.00 ea.


Widening is accomplished by removing normally a 1-2 inch wide piece of parent wheel, including bead seat and flange that holds the tire on, and replacing with another rim section that is longer to make it wider. The new piece comes from an outer shell that 2 piece wheels are made from. The 2 pieces are turned to interlock to maintain alignment during welding. The 2 pieces are then welded together on our automatic rotary welding machine. Final step is to skim cut in lathe the new bead seat diameter, and slim cut mounting surface on back of center. These steps insure a perfect true running wheel. Cost $200.00-$300.00 depending on size.


Many of our modified wheels run regularly at high speed, such as Bonneville Salt Flats, at 200-400+ MPH with confidence.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not do 6- or 8-lug heavy-duty wheels, nor steel wheels. Also, we no longer work on chrome-plated aluminum wheels.


For more specific information call Eric at Vaughn Machine (626) 358-6413

Sorry it's been so long. I've been wrapped up in quite a mess at home. We were wiped out in the Valley Fire, and sadly the Mustang didn't make it out of the garage because I was out fighting the fire and the kids didn't feel comfortable driving her. I will have another pony in my future, just not sure when. Getting another house is the priority.
I'll leave with a sad front end shot. Click image for larger version

That just sucks so much, MedxGT. If you have a shot of your car in the garage from an angle close to that one, it will make for a story on a side-by-side backdrop at car shows. That fire took out a lot of homes and a good number of classic cars from what I've heard. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery back to normal life for you and the family.

It's difficult to tell that there is a car in that photo.

I was so sad to hear what happened, Paul.
Best wishes moving forward.
