Default Rays Victrix Kreutzer

Hi guys,
I'm looking into buying some new wheels for my GS, they are 18x9 and 11 Rays Victrix Kreutzer's. Does anyone know if the dishes and barrels are welded together on these or just bolted? And also where I could get some bigger dishes for the fronts to make them 10's

I've always wondered the same thing. My SSR/Watanabe RS-8's on my Roadster are 2-piece welded. I'd love to get them re-lipped if I ever do flares on the car and add 2 inches to the width. I am hoping it's as easy as cutting them with an angle grinder or band saw and welding new lips on.

Subscribing to see how this turns out for you. Good luck.

I would suggest having a professional wheel shop do the rebarelling. Even for professionals it would not be an easy task. Remember that you will be riding on these so if they fail then it will be catastrophic.

Agreed. I say find the rims you want.. rather than trying to hack up some ones that are welded.. it will not end well.
