I really love the look of the stock wheels but I was wondering if they make a rear wheel that looks like this in a 20x11. I have done some searching and have come up with nothing. If they dont I will probably go with the all black slr wheels. Any good place to start looking for those? I figured with all the custom wheels I see around there would be plent of stock slr pulloff wheels. This is the wheel I am looking for in a 20x11. Thanks for any help.

You can try Polaris...I have one.

Thanks! They're pretty sweet. Just be careful of offsets. I had to put a 5mm spacer on the rear to clear the brakes.

I think that all the slingshots will have the same bolt pattern. Look into the Polaris website...for starters.

A spacer will effectively reduce the offset when the offset is too large. A spacer is useless when the offset is too small.

Just gotta be careful with bolt pattern, offset, and I ordered some "sleeves" that went over the hub to make sure the wheel was solidly installed. 15 bucks on eBay.

Yeah, if memory serves stock is 45mm and my rear wheel, 50. Close enough but a spacer per my mechanic was definitely need as the brakes were slightly rubbing the wheel.

@dalancroft is correct. Slingshot offsets for all models are 42 mm Front and 45 mm rear. When adding different wheels use of properly sized hub-centric adapter rings ensures the wheel is centered on the brake hub so the lug nuts can properly secure the wheel centered to the hub. The Slingshot uses a 66.1 mm hub so a hub-centric adapter for the Slingshot will need to adapt a 66.1 mm inner opening (that fits the Slingshot hub) and an outer diameter that fits the new wheel. For example, I run an American Muscle 17x10.5", 28 mm offset wheel meant for a 1994-98 Mustang on the rear of my 2015 Base Slingshot from American Muscle and needed a 66.1 mm inner diameter to 70.3 mm outer diameter hub-centric ring adapter to center the Mustang wheel on the Slingshot hub. Some folks skip the hub-centric adapter and just rely on the lug-nuts to secure the wheel and keep it centered on the hub, but this places additional strain on the lugs and nuts ans can result in problems if the lug-nuts should ever loosen.
