Wheel options for 305 rear tire?

Well I've decided to breakdown and ask, what are my wheel options if I want to run a 305/30/19 tire (AD08R or R888) on stock ZCP suspension?

I've search the forum and it seems I'd need a 19x11 ET 30-33 wheel but that size is more difficult than you'd think to find.

Now I have seen a few options:

1. Forgeline VXC3-SL - nice but pricey
2. Forgestar CF5V - very reasonable price, concerned about the weight and durability.

What else is out there that that you'd recommend?

Any advice is appreciated!

CCW is one, and they aren't silly expensive, certainly cheaper than Forgline. Lots of options for custom. Just not many off the shelf unfortunately, because stance

Just curious on why you want to run 305's? I'm at 600whp and my 295's are just fine. It's the compound, not the width. AD08's run wide. My 295's actually measure very close to 305's

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into those. Seems the best options are with companies who offer custom wheel fitment

I'm in a similar situation as you but my current setup doesn't allow me to get on it till 4 (sometimes) or 5 gear. You're right, 295's probably would work but 305's would add a bit more safety margin in case I decided to go bigger. My daily setup will either be 265/30/19 and 305/30/19 with R888 or 275/30/19 and 295/30/19 ad08r's.
