Custom slot wheels?
Does anyone know where I can get a set of 17x8 and 17x9 Ansen "style" slot wheels. I have them in 15" now but would like them bigger. I know I can get them from American Racing, but you can only get them in 17x7. And that just won't work for 275/40-17's. I would even be willing to have them made.
I have a friend who is an American Racing Wheel distributor. Let me know exactly which wheel you like and the width and offset you want and I'll ask him if a custom width/offset is possible. It may be a long shot but I can ask. Chuck
I would really appreciate that. I am looking at the American Racing Ansen Sprint Slot Mag. For the front, I am looking for 17x8 with a 4.5" BS and for the rear, I need 17x9 with a 5" BS (or 17x9.5 with 5.5" BS). I understand it may be a long shot but I still appreciate it.
I'll let you know what I find out. Chuck
I'm interested in a set as well. Please let me know what you find out.


Sorry guys, I haven't been able to reach my source yet. I'll keep trying. Chuck
Thank you. I just spoke with the guys from Year One. To modify a wheel in the size I want, they said it would be $3200.00. Very nice wheels but way more than I can afford for 4 wheels.
I heard back. It is a no go. The one piece wheels are cast and can't be custom specced. Sorry to get your hopes up. It was a long shot. Chuck
I totally understand. Thanks for checking on that for me.

Look here:


17x8 with the appropriate backspace. Is that good enough? I know American Racing made them. I'm wondering if they are still in stock somewhere and if American Racing is still making them.

Alternatively, I know ET still makes some that are similar but not exact.
