Enlarging a wheel's center bore

Has anyone done this successfully? What tool(s) did you use to do it? They are cast aluminum.

Just bought some wheels that I found out after the fact are a few mm too small on the center bore and I don't know if I want to pay the $64/ea to have them bored out.

And yes, we test fit them on before I left the place, but by eyeballing it it looked like it fit perfectly. It wasn't until later that I realized the bore issue.

any machine shop can do it. usually charge $20 to do it. ive also done it myself using a die grinder real slowly. worked out well, and even my balence didnt get messed up. but thats at your own risk obviousely.
Yeah, the only one I could find around here wants $65 a wheel, and I don't think it's worth it really.

Edit, just called a shop, they said about $30/wheel. Ok, now I'm more inclined to keep them. =)
