Anyone make larger sized shelby wheels?

I'm wondering of anybody has ever made a set of larger sized (17's or 18's) Shelby wheels, found on cars like Eleanor from "Gone In 60 Seconds". I know theres a german place that makes a resin Eleanor kit with those wheels, but I dont think they are offering them separately. Just in case, I emailed them and asked. If anyone knows of anywhere else that makes them, please let me know. Thanks!

Like these? They are closer to 20" in 1/25 scale, though:

Unless you plan to use them with the kit's 5.5" wide tires, they'll need to be modified to fit a proportionate tire of your choice.

hey brodie, here is the diecast i was talking about and a mockup to give you an idea. the back wheels are great for the offset and the fronts can be used on smaller cars like the opel gt or mini. not bad for the price
