Wheel and tire package to fit 2004 SSR

Looking for chrome spoke style 20 front 22 rear to fit my truck. Currently has 20 all around. Not appealing.

A set of original wheels if anyone knows where I can find?

Originals are 19 front and 20 rear and can be either Chrome or the Silvertone color. 6 lug is the problem. I like the stock chrome myself. You can have custom wheels built for you but they are $7000 and up. Happy hunting.

Several manufacturers can build you billet wheels in 20s and 22s. You can get a great wheel for a lot less than 7K. You would need to pick a style that has a hub that can be built with either 5 or 6 holes without cutting into the spokes.

My one-off wheels in 19 and 20 were about $3K. Lots of good production wheels in the 3 - 4K range.

The only error I made was going with the manufacturer's recommendation of the button style valve stems. Terrible design, and fortunately I was able to get some short ATV chrome valve stems that just clear the front caliper.

I found this old thread from when I first installed the wheels on my 03.

I would recommend staying with billet aluminum wheels. They are more work to maintain than chrome, but it you curb a chrome wheel, it's game over. An aluminum wheel is very easy to repair.

There are multiple manufacturers of 20 and 22 inch wheels . Here are examples from Budnik. I'm not a fan of 6 spoke wheels but some of these 6 bolt hubs look OK.

https://www.budnik.com/six-lug-series-wheels

Scroll down the page to see the many sizes available. You're probably looking for a 9 inch front and a 10 inch rear. The 10 inch can easily handle a 315 tire.

Just a starting point. You have to be patient. Most resellers will try to get you to pick a wheel based on vehicle. Impossible to work that way, so best to search for the many manufacturers, find something you like, and call them for a price.

Hello from New Jersey
I have a spare set of original rims that I purchase from Dictator a couple of years ago , so I could get my original rim forced balanced and powdered coated. It took a couple of months to complete but they are really looking good and very easy to keep clean.
The only down fall with shipping (2) 19 and (2) 20 inch rims is the cost and they are not light so let me know, will have to get to see what they are worth and the shipping cost, so if you are interested let me know and I will do some more investigating into prices.
