Changing Wheel Widths (lips)

I was curious if anyone has had any experience with changing lips on 3 piece wheels. I wanted to find out how much it would cost to change like a 7.5 wide wheel to have a wider lip.

To my understanding when a 3 piece wheel is being refinished, they take out all the hardware and separate the lip from the center face. At that point since the 2 are apart anyways, how much would it be to get a different lip to replace the not as wide lip.

Any ideas, suggestions, pricing, and/or referrals would be greatly appreciated. Located in Socal for any referrals. Thanks in advance.

For a start, talk to RB Motoring/RB Wheels about their refinishing services. They have a ton of lips and faces that they offer, and you can pretty much get 3 piece wheels resized to any width you would please (within reason...).

I've been to their warehouse and there are a lot of wheels, lips, faces, and barrels laying around... So it wouldn't hurt to call them at all.
