Default Who makes wide high positive offset wheels?

I'm looking for a 17x10 ET 55-60 wheel in 5x114.3 and haven't found anything. Its for my 1991 Toyota Aristo (GS300). It has Rays 17x8.5 ET 40 right now in the rear and the lip of the rim is just level with the fender lip. I have at least 55mm clearance to the spring however so I want to go wider, higher positive offset and bring it in closer to the spring. The goal is to go from a 245 series tire to the widest I can reasonably fit which is probably a 275 series.

It just seems like most of the high positive offset wheels are too big, like 18-20", or the wrong bolt pattern like 5x112. Ideas?

This is for a sleeper effect so I'm specifically trying to keep it boring looking. If I have to just take whatever style I get, I suppose thats fine and I'll put a wheel cover over it. But an 18" is really too big at that point because it doesn't look stock even with a wheel cover/hub cap.

You may have to go custom width/offsets like CCW's or another company. Majority of wheels now are lower offsets for newer vehicle fitments plus the demand for lower offsets to stretch tires etc....

Good call, thanks. I checked out CCW's website and it looks like this is who RWB is using apparently. The wheels are $500-525 each for a 17x10 custom which I'm sure would be totally perfect. At that price point, it would probably actually be smarter to convert to a JZA80 Supra rear end (shorter control arms and axles) and just run the high offset wheels to make up the difference. I guess the scary thing about those wheels when you don't have a worldwide fleet of widebody Porsche customers, is that you buy them for life. Nobody else is ever going to want that offset and size, so you take them to your grave basically.

DETAristo is suggesting I looking into 15x10 options and I might just do that.

Forgestar has some options.

Here's a list right off their website with the sizes and offset ranges they can do for the F14.
