You might check out John James Racing in Chandler AZ. They did some for me three or four years ago. Super quality work just not sure they do them anymore.

Lindsey Racing in CO should still be doing them. Base for their 17" wheels. I know core wheel availability has been an issue.

What about using maxilite 16x6” wheels as a base? I realize they’re not forged. But they’re also not forged and people are using them. Sooooo.
What about that?

Lindsey was the main shop doing it. Mirage International and Rebel Racing Products used to do it too, still may.

I tried Mirage a few times with no luck. I have one center, was looking around for one more.

Lindsey Racing is in the county of Oklahoma, City of Oklahoma City, State of Oklahoma, yea, the founders did not have much imagination.

Bad idea. Wheel is already fatigued and you're subjecting it to stresses it was not designed for.

Not the answer you wanted, of course. Probably have to find an entire wheel to get a center.

I have a spare center hanging in the wall in the garage, it might already have holes in it though, I don't remember. I'll post a pic on Friday.

Great thanks.
I can drill it if it doesn’t have the holes.

One data point: I'm in my 15th year of regular track use with my Lindsey-cut Fuchs centers.
