I kind of like the way the stock wheels look, I've heard people send them to a place called Weldcraft. I don't know exactly where that is located, anyone in Texas more specifically around Houston that knows of a good shop that could take my stock rears cut them and reweld them to fit 10" tires? I assume that would be around 275-285's but I might be wrong.

Weldcraft is in Michigan,. They do an awesome job. The widest I'd shoot for is 9-9 1/2". I got 285s to fit nicely on 9" wheels

Well I got it done 5 years ago. I think it's about $225 per right now. I had them dropped off and picked up as I'm in Michigan. It took about a week

Thanx for the info on Weldcraft , i'm calling them tomarrow to get a price. I'm about 30 minutes from them , so there wont be any shipping cost here lol . I went to Harlow tire today to ask them what size MT Drag Radial will fit my 06 and they suggested a 275/40/ r15.....(26 x 10) , but suggested a 9" rim , Hence Weldcraft lol. Might be a stupid question but Svede you had your rims added to on the back half of the rim correct ??? i seen they can add to either the front half or back half . Oh and factory 17" gto rim is 8" wide correct ?Thanx for your help.

Yup the stock wheel is 8" wide. They add width to the back side. The stock 17s don't have a lip on the front side to add to anyways. 275s will fit nicely. I added a 5mm spacer to bring the wheel back out from the inner fender a touch and mildly rolled the fenders.
