8 lug steelies, smoothies, etc.

Anybody know of a company making steelies, smoothies or rally wheels in the 18-20 inch 8 lug for our 3/4 tons? Or a company that makes them in custom offsets for additional costs? Thanks!

I was given this URL when I asked for wheels for my truck. Maybe you can search further from it to find the wheels you actually want. Wheel Vintiques may make what you want-

Re: 8 lug steelies, smoothies, etc.

I know you said 18-20 and I do not know of any 8 lug steelies in those sizes, however, there is a guy named Steven Dillman who can get you a set made in 22". He has quite a few sets of the 22x9 GM Transit wheels, and he has a machinist who can modify them to any bolt pattern, backspacing, or width that you want. I think it's $1300/set for the 8 lug 22x9s. I got my Transit wheels through him and hes a good guy to work with. We communicated through Instagram, but if you don't have Instagram I can try to get his contact info for you. He might be able to help you out with sourcing some 18s or 20s if that's what you prefer.

If someone made an 8 lug 20 inch in the kidney bean style rally wheel, I would hop on that right now.

Detroit Steel expects to have them available soon. They had 8-lug steelies in "testing" during the first quarter of this year.

Whew, those are nice (and pricey)! Pretty much exactly what you were looking for right? They make up to a 26x12!? I'd like to see those mounted up.

Yep those are the ones I want. INTRO WHEELS makes the same one at about the same price.
