Default OT: aluminum wheels

Does anyone know of a shop that will cut and widen an aluminum wheel. I have a friend that is playing with a street rod and seems noone makes the size wheel he needs. I told him I knew where to tap into a great wealth of knowledge.

I use to work at Radir wheels in New Jersey. We built tons of hot rods there and got so tired of trying to find nice wheels we started the business of making our own. I have sinced moved to FLA but the guy who runs it can widen or find any wheel or make any wheel size you could think of. Call Rich Conclin.. 973-334-4358 and tell him Kid Billy told you to call. He is the hot rod wheel king.
He also runs the Dead Mans Curve car club of nostaligic hot rods. if anyone is into that sort of thing,,,,,,,,,,,
