I've also email then asking if any wheel shops in my area have this. If they do I will contact them to see how much charge is involved.

Yes, as far as build-to-fit and custom lug drilling on premium alloy wheels (figure 1k and up per wheel).

For ready made wheels it should help you in picking the widest wheel and tire combo.

I sent an email into the Wheel Fit (aluminum) maker asking if any wheel companies in my area has purchased it. I would think the larger metropolitan areas that offer expensive alloys would have this tool to help make ordering wheels for their customers easier. Also, I could see car clubs buying this to help their members when wanting to buy custom made wheels. Because it sure beats the trial and error method.

Then the trick is picking a set of wheels that enhance the car without also looking like they are more expensive than the car they are on. I have a feeling that's what I'd end up doing.

It helps determine what will fit, could be useful.
