After market Dually Wheels

Hello, all. I just got the go ahead from wife to get an 2012 F350 Diesel Dually (4x4). I am going to lift it, just a little, and put some new wheels on it. I have been searching the internet religiously for some 20 or 22 inch dually wheels and am coming up short, or to expensive. I have seen the American Force wheels and love them, but they are out of my price range. Can any of you point me in the right direction for some 20's or 22's? Thanks in advanced, Daron.

Thanks so much for the feedback so far, but it has sparked two other questions that maybe you can continue some input on. I have looked at those American Force wheels and aside from the price I love em. Even if I get them I have a question concerning tires fit. I would like to get a tire width around the 12.5 range, but all the manufacturers websites state they recommend a minimum wheel width of 9" or wider for a tire that wide, and all the American Force wheels are 8.25 or narrower. Is it ok and safe to put a 12.5 inch wide tire on an 8.25" wheel? The only problem I have with the 22.5 size wheels is that it dramatically limits the tire choices available to me. Lastly, 94slowbra, I notice the picture of your lifted dually, very nice, I am getting a dually over a SRW because I plan on getting a large 41' Toy Hauler Fifth Wheel soon. Do you know "roughly" how high I can probably go on raising the truck before I get into an unsafe position for pulling that, or compromising the way the 5th wheel was designed to be towed? So far I am looking at trying to get about a 35"-36" tire, and a 2" leveling kit, so all in all it would only be about 4"-5" above factory, I think I would be good, do you? Thanks again guys
