Help finding wheels?

I've got a vision in my head for this GT350 kit I got without rims and tires...

My problem is, where can I find some large-diameter Halibrand (or similar) style wheels?

One thing to note. The Monogram Shelby wheels have six spokes, while the wheels James shows are five spokes.

Some Jada 1/32 scale die-cast models (GT40 for one) include Shelby/Halibrand wheels, but the knock-offs are molded as one with the wheel and would take a lot of time and some very careful work to remove.

Chuck, while those wheelse do look good, I am looking to go more modern "pro-touring" look, and those aren't quite big enough :)

Steve Zimmermann from PA does some nice ones with turned aluminum rims and resin centers, in 18" and a 19/23" combo pack; I got a set of the 18's from him at this past weekend's NNL East. I don't have any pics, but I alerted him to this thread through Facebook.

You can also use the rims in the R/M Monte Carlo green lowrider kit, grind the lip that holds the tire on, and put Pegasus sleeves on them for the rears. I have made a couple sets but have not painted the centers as of yet. I want to.

Green 75 ish Monte Carlo snap kit has them. Just add the spinners. Dig around the truck section and find my 50 ford truck wip. It has them. I left the centers chrome and put Pegasus hoops on the rears

I was going to suggest him as well. The ones that he has are very nice.
