Default Machine shop needed for wheel offset correction.

I have a very specific set of wheels that I need to alter the offset on, in order to make them legal for SCCA Stock class. I know most manufacturers cast/forge their wheels in their specific diameters/widths, then lathe their offsets to specification accordingly.

Does anyone here know of a competent machine shop in the Northeast capable of doing this for me?

Preferably one in the Northeast, but I'm willing to have them drop-shipped anywhere in the contiguous 48 states.

I guess you want a specific wheel? I'd suggest just purchasing the proper offset rim from the get-go.

I need a shop to remove 10mm from the hub mating surface on the back of each wheel, effectively raising the offset.

I agree wholly Paisan. The trouble is that there are absolutely NO lightweight wheels in a legal size and offset for my Honda. This is an extreme measure, but one that will enable me to use a car that I see lots of potential in H Stock class. The stock wheels are 17lbs each and I will be removing a total of 36lbs just by using the lighter ones.

Yeah I figured that that was the issue, the unsprung weight reduction will be nice for yah.

I always hated how the SCCA rules were written to cause you to do crazy things like you have to do in this case!

there should be many, many competant machine shops in your area that can handle this... Just start calling around.
