ok, after buying myself a nice set of 8x13" Rims, and then getting a prohibition notice from the feds (because the rims stuck out too far), i have decided to build myself a set of these.....

exactly!

I will be making them by cutting the original steel arch about 1/2 inch down, (but not all the way to the ends), then pulling the arch out - carefully so it doesnt snap off, then use measured weld rods to space the arch to a desired width, then spot weld them in.
Then plate over the rods and smooth, blend the arches in.
