19.5 aluminum rims

Can someone explain to me why it's so hard to find a set of aluminum 19.5" rims for a 99 450??? seems they went to a 10 lug on the 05's and no one has anymore with the 8 lug style...

I lost a couple lugs on my simulators (during 1 trip to NYC) - called Pacific Duallies and they discontinued that style, and no more replacement lugs. they want 300 for a new set.

Re: 19.5 aluminum rims

Hey Hawker have you tried American Force?

I was looking on putting aluminum wheels on my 02 450 and it's 8 lug.

They supposed to be of good quality.

There were a few more names but can't remember.

Re: 19.5 aluminum rims

just got my alcoas for 257 a piece, shipped. they have a mill finish, so i'm droppin them off at the chrome shop tomorrow for some polishing.

I've yet to find center caps, so i might make my own, and a badass set of lug covers (in matching aluminum, no chrome)
