    Wheel widening by Custom Metal Spinning now that Kosman isn't doing it any more.

    Back in October or November, I called Kosman about widening the front wheel on my 1st gen. I was told that Kosman didn't do it any more and was referred to a guy named Charlie Sullivan. He was kind of hard to get ahold of but I finally spoke to him in early January and he referred me to a guy...

    Kosman done?

    I just wrapped up my rear wheel weldup with Sandy Kosman. I considered aftermarket wheels but the throwback gearhead in me says a weldup is cool. And bang for the buck too. After exchanging info and telling me he would ship it in the morning, he told me I had the distinction of being his...

    Beautiful Work by Sandy Kosman

    Got my wheel back from Sandy Kosman who modified it to accept a radial. The welds are "flawless", according to Norm at Rochester Motorsports. Norm is mounting Michelin Pilot Road 4's with a 180/55/17 on the rear. He thinks that a 190 MIGHT fit but based on his measurements of the wheel and...

    Considering Kosman 18" Rear, 19" Front

    I'm considering going through Kosman to have my rear converted to 18x5.5 and the front to 19x3 and likely running 180/55r18 and 120/70r19 tires. I'm mainly looking for the best handling option for radials while not breaking the bank. Also, I've heard that some people have run the 180...

    Kosman

    So I sent off my rear wheel several weeks back to Kosman's here in California to be modified to 17 inches. I was called about 10 days ago stating that they no longer do the bolt-together conversion but instead weld it up. They asked me if I wanted to machine off the weld bead, but being that I...
