Another video from Make it Kustom. Karl cuts wheels and makes it look easy. You CAN do it.

I will check this one out tonight, I've been thinking of doing the same thing, I just might do it with a wood lathe and a grinder?

The lathe would be OK, but Karl didn’t use anything but a marker and grinder to cut the wheels. They came out fine. Actually not a difficult process at all, if you are simply narrowing the wheels. Nothing special needed. A grinder and welder, a tape measure, marker and a square.

...plus a great deal of patience and skill! He did a great job and he did it old school like the boys back in the day!

Haven't even watched the vid yet so I'll save my smart comments for later, but the other way I was thinking of doing it is just spinning them on the tractor...

Best to watch the video. We aren’t talking about rocket science. A simple ‘mark a line and cut along it’ works just fine. The welding process, if done correctly (and it is simple) will make up for any wobble you may have created by a crooked cut.

Watch it. Cool
