Most cast brands will have the same amount of concave. The wheel specs are all pretty much the same, so there will never be inches of concave difference. If you want deeper concave you need to run wider wheels, so something like a 18x10 or 10.5 in the rear, but then there aren't many companies that offer that. Forgestar would probably get you the deepest concave since you can get them in wider widths.

Yes but...when you get into that 10 or 10.5 range and run a reasonable width tire (265) then you need to roll the rear fenders, correct?

I've got a 10.5, 265 now and don't need to roll. Could easily run a 275 too.
