    Default Yes another Fuso SRW thread.....sorry.....

    I've read everything I can find here and have called most of the wheel supplier in the threads for my 05 FG140, I was moving towards a double bead lock but have changed my mind to a standard alloy rim. Found a great company near by called Trailready that will make a 20in for $679USD weighing 48lbs with a 4800lbs rating but I would need to provide all the specs for offset/holes/center. Is the only other alloy option ATW at $789 plus shipping?

    No.
    I have no personal experience with either of these, but Earthcruiser/Alan and Goanna Tracks both offer alloy rims.

    I do not know if Eartcruiser Aus has changed their rim supplier lately, but a friend popped in the other day with his truck that had these fitted.
    They looked really nice, and were quite similar in design to the ATW rims. From memory they were a 17" rim.

    There are other companies here that do alloy rims, but they do not give an identical track front and rear. Shan has some fitted to his truck.
    No idea what, if any, alloy options you have over your way.

    I assume that you talked to Earthcruiser USA. I'd send Mark at Earthcruiser Aus an email, as I know the rim I pictured is 17" (I just rang my mate and confirmed it).
    These rims are also rated higher than the original Eathcruiser rims, as they are legal on my mate's FGB71 truck, which has a GVM of 6400kg.
    One thing to note is that I believe that none of these alloy rims come with a 5 hole pattern, only 6.

    What width 20s? And what tyre were you thinking to run? Mine are good, but they’re probably closer to 48kg than lb haha. They’re recentered 20x11 off a U1300

    Picked up wheels from Tony a few weeks ago.....I like 'em, though my mileage has decreased....If you should decide to get those (or use any 37" tires on an FG 140) you'll need to re-spring the front or modify your lower step to clear when you tilt your cab.....PM me if you need any details.....The front springs w/ greasable shackles Tony provided, improved my ride and handling dramatically...

    Leaning towards ATW alloys. 19.5x8.25 weigh 44lbs with a 6944lbs load capacity each. Any other thoughts?

    At the risk of being called a troll or other things, there is such a thing as a 14R19.5 sand tire., 36.5" tall, 14" wide. It would probably fit on a 9.5-9.75" wide rim
