Big Inch Wheels

I have seen old skool ralley wheels come in sizes up to 17"...does anyone know if they make them in 18"-20" sizes?
I would like to find some larger diameter vette style ralleys in bare steel.
Thanks for the read.
Later,
WEIMER

Vintage Wheel probably makes them, or can custom make them..............not my thing, but to each their own.

Some of the big inch "Rallye wheels" that I've seen start to loose their look a little when they get up over 17", the holes stay the same size, and they look a little out of proportion IMO.

The biggest that I have seen is 17". I would like to find a pair of 18's and 20's for a project that I am brewing up...
I may have to give Wheel Vintiques a call and see what kind of pricing/availabilty I am looking at.

Make sure you have a fat wallet with you. Crazy Mopar Guy hit it dead on, they don't have the same appeal. I think 17s is when they start to look funny.

After seeing the potholes on Ohio roads, knowing that more metal/rubber on your wheel will bend a rim in a hurry, sounds like you might be spending more than you are brewing. Good Luck anyway.

It is going be going on a vehicle that is more or less a show vehicle and not a daily driver. I have lived in Ohio my whole life and I do know that the roads aren't the greatest...but the Ralleys are a steel wheel and not a cast aluminum wheel also. Big difference when in a road to wheel battle.
As far as spending more than I am brewing... The wheels aren't as expensive as one might think, I am not looking for a billet wheel, All I wanted to know is if anyone knew of anyone that made them that large.
