    17" OEM Style 42 to 18"

    Hey guys i'm got a chance to buy some Style 42's and was curious if they could be taken apart to install new barrels and step lips to run them as 18's? i love the design of them but the 18" 42's are rare and expensive. i eventually want close to 9.5" front and 10" in the rear on a 98' 740. not sure on the offset just yet. thanks for any info that you provide.
