Aftermarket wheel options in Aus

Hi all,
I've got a '12 Limited and is schedules to have a 40mm lift shortly. I want to fit a set of aftermarket wheels to lower the offset by about 15-20mm and run 285/50/20 tyres.

The suspension I've got sorted, the tyres are easy to get but I am really struggling to find locally available 20" rims in the right stud pattern (5x127).

Does anyone know of any options available?

Thanks
PT

Thanks scarps, I'll check it out.

EFS have apparently had a vehicle in and are developing suspension now. They're saying around 8 weeks until they're ready.

Re: Aftermarket wheel options in Aus

Your ride came with the 20's? 285/50/20 should fit but will be darn close to the nut. It will come down to how comfortable you are with it. I belive others are running the Zeons in that size with no dramas.

I went down in rim size from the 20's to 18's it gives you much better choice in rubber.

I used GVS for the rims changed the offset by 10mm - they drill the stud pattern once you select the right rim.

Currently running the Dobinsons lift with no dramas.

Buy a package from the USA with tyres. You will save heaps.
