So I have a 2012 Yukon Denali with 20" factory wheels. It looks like the factory ones are 31mm offset. Not 100% sure but that is what I found online. I need to replace at least 1 of my factory wheels maybe 2. One has a leak that supposedly can't be fixed and needs replaced. I am not a big fan of the chrome wheels that are on it in the first place, so I don't really want to buy more of those. I also don't want to spend anything on wheels, but if I want to fix the problem I have to spend something. I guess what I am trying to say is the cheaper the better on this repair, though I guess I want to like the way it looks too. I was hoping to spend under $1000 but thought I may have to go up to $1300-$1500. I am having a hard time finding some that are the correct offset. I found a set I liked for under $200 each, but they are not the correct offset. I know you can add a spacer, but don't want the wheels to stick out noticeably more then the factory ones. I would like to go with something black, but not solid black. the ones I was looking at still have some aluminum showing to break up the solid black. here are a few examples of what I was looking at, but I am open to some cheaper options.



Basically a black spoked style wheel with some aluminum to break it up. Any ideas on what I can get that will fit? thanks

I'm a fan of the OEM designs for later model trucks because it updates your truck and makes it look like a later model to the casual observer. And for people who know these trucks really well, it's still a tasteful upgrade that doesn't scream aftermarket.


And this one in particular:

You can find some stocks or snowflake replicas cheap online or go to custom offsets website I do there 90 day no interest payment plan whenever I get tires and always bumps my credit up considerably once I pay it off. If you got the cash you can get some 20” replicas for around 800-1000$ new or around the same price used on Facebook marketplace I’m like you I don’t want or have the money to spend on nice wheels so I ended up trading my way up to what I have now made money by doing it and ended up with a setup worth about 5-6K new for free basically!

I'm with Geotrash on this one. I stick with OEM because it's just simple and you know they will fit correctly. I use FB marketplace a lot for random things like this. You'd be surprised what people are willing to get rid of for a reasonable price. I usually do a GMC WHEELS search and it brings up lots of options. Usually a few have tires on them as well.

I'm thinking about getting this style wheel for my 2012 Denali, but maybe in the gunmetal Grey. The Denali isn't black, but a dark Grey metallic (carbon flash metallic). This wheel looks pretty dark in the pics on the site, but not quite as dark as black.

Would the difference in offset/backspacing be a problem (31 vs 24), guessing it will sit inboard just a tad compared to the OE wheels?

This is .27 of an inch. Basically 1/4 inch. I bet , not only will that be fine , but it will look good too.

Unless you find something really awesome in the aftermarket realm, I would do OE take offs. I changed from the 17" that it came with to a set of 2018 Silverado 20s - fit perfect and compliments the black/white storm trooper look. If memory serves-would say I was all in with tires/wheels for under 1100 installed. A salvage yard close to you may have OE for sale - check out https://www.car-parts.com to search locally or regionally.
