Re: Wheel widening...or an applicable swap?
I know a guy who used a plasma cutter to cut out flanges that bolted in place to the stock Comstar shaft drive hub and allowed him to lace up a 36 spoke alloy rim. I imagine he would either be able to make you a set of similar flanges or share the file with you and you could have them made somewhere.
