Any ideas how to find/make this?

I really like the look of the 17" TRD Tundra Rims:

http://www.trdsparks.com/displaypart...&parts_id=2358

But since they are 5 lug I cant just bolt them on. Does anyone have any ideas on how to find/modify existing 6 lug rims to match that TRD look? I'm ok with painting, powder coating, etc...

The center caps can be bought from sparks so thats easy. I just need to find a double 6 spoke with simu-locks. Isn't there a company that modifies non-bead lock rims into bead lock or simu-lock?

Thanks in advance!

Jim

The TX wheels have a more forked spoke. I was hoping for parallel spokes like the Tundra wheels.

I thought about adapting but the Tundra rims are 6.5" bs. So after adapters it's still 5.5-5" bs. Since I plan on running aftermarket tires in a larger size it's probably not going to work.

Thanks anyway for the input!

Jim
