Default 5x135 Mesh Wheels

I've got a 2003 Ford Lightning, and while it's an awesome truck, it has a major fault... the bolt pattern. It shares them with the F150, because that's technically what it is, but the only premade wheels for that pattern are giant off road truck rims, and I don't want that. I'm looking for a nice mesh wheel design (5x135) that I don't have to customly order, because I don't have the $5k to spend. I'm looking to spend about $2000. If you could find QUALITY custom built rims for under $2500 or so, that would also work.

Thanks,
Nash

Not really sure what you mean by mesh, but what diameter/width/backspacing were you looking for? There are plenty of sport truck wheels out there.

This is the style I'm looking for. 20x10.

I FINALLY FOUND AN OPTION!!

After considering re-machining my hubs to a different pattern, getting wheels custom drilled to 5x135, etc. Lexani will custom drill their wheels at different offsets and any bolt pattern!

Lexani CVX44 CVX-44 Silver/Machined w/ Chrome Lip 22x9 22x10.5 Staggered Wheels

I am not ordering from these guys but should be submitting my measurements to Lexani next week when I get back in town. Cant wait to fit these wheels on my 03 Harley truck in 9"F/10.5"R fitment. I was running 22" Harley replicas and they were alright, but these will look amazing.

Your Lightning will look great with mesh wheels. I drive VW/Audi cars along with my truck and I think that wheel style is timeless.

Good luck! Post pics!
