does anyone make a forged hubcentric wheel?

i have a set of weld sandstorm 20x10's that have been discontinued, they are forged alloy hubcentric wheels. I had someone over the weekend run a red light and hit me from the side doing 60, luckily he hit me square in the back wheel. He spun my truck 360 degrees and didnt put a scratch on it, just cracked the center cap. totaled his car though. center caps are also discontinued and cant find any used. so, his insurance is buying a whole new set of rims. Does anyone know of a wheel that is forged alloy and hubcentric? I have hit a curb with a cast wheel and it cracked, so i want to stick with forged rim. seems like weld racing had the market on this but when they went under and american racing bought them, they stopped making them. Any help would be great

I would like to know this too, someone told me to look at Fuel Off-Road D504 Gauge wheels because they are a forged hubcentric wheel, but I dont know.
Also does it matter if the wheels are hubcentric?
Thanks~Gage~

After some research, i found some descent wheels: American Force Wheels

forged heat treated and hub-centric. I dont believe MHT makes a forged wheel (fuel wheels) all cast when I talked with them. Imo, forged is the best option for my needs, they are lighter and stronger. As far as hub centric, people have different opinions. I believe the engineers at FORD made the factory rims hub centric for a reason. Lug centric wheels carries the load of truck and payload on the lugs and not the hubs.

Ok thanks for that I didnt know that Ford factory rims are hub centric. I took a look at American Force Wheels but they only come in chrome? Also they are to big I was looking for 17" or 18" wheels. Why is buying wheels/tires so hard?

I'm in the same boat, I like the American Force wheels but I don't want something bigger than an 18.
