Default 18" steel rims, 6-8" wide, 8x6.5 bolt pattern

Need a source for these. Don't know who can make them.

Or an aluminum rim of the same spec if I can't get steel.

The tires we want to run require 18x7 wheels, and steel is stronger.

They are out of stock on 18" center sections, and were not willing to make a custom wheels for me regardless of price.

Dammit man, not catching any breaks... Do any of the forged wheels from Boze fit your needs? Or do they have to be steel?

Pat, call Chuck Noriega (626-357-9970) on Monday and ask him for Eric Vaughn's # (founder of Real Wheels)...He sold the company in 2004, but I believe he is still in the machining biz...

Thanks y'all!

At this point, we are still awaiting a rollcage to be built. Seems that wheels and tires will have to wait until after Bonneville. I ran out of time, and odds are that Casper won't have the safety equipment in it in time.
