Default Is a 3.3" to 3.25" bushing possible?

Or is that to small to be doable. I had a race spin bad, and the hub isn't available anymore, I'm hoping to find a bigger race with my same bearing to do the fix, but just curious what my options are if I can't find something to work.

Could you have a new race made with larger OD?

What is it for?

.025 wall is pretty thin. If you can find someone to make it, you could freeze fit it in. Also check out speedie sleeves from Invetech. The only ones I have ever used are for shafts and not bores but it would be worth a look.

You won't be able to find anyone who will make a single piece tapered bearing outer race.

Do you have the actual part number you need?

I found a bigger race, with a bearing the same ID. One of my customers is gonna machine the hub to fit the new race. Between bearing, races, and machining ill have under $100 into it. Much easier than tracking down a hub that I will pay more for than the machining.
