Custom Wheel Source

Does anyone know of a source for aluminum rims without centers? I want to make a set of custom wheels by casting centers and welding them to rims, but I'm having a hard time finding bare rims. I can't imagine Boyd, Foose, or most of the other custom wheel guys fabricate their own rims, they must buy them and just make the centers. Thanks.

Give the guys at Newstalgia wheels a call, they are most accommodating.

A "One Off" set of wheels is going to cost you a fortune................

Thanks for the link, I'll give them a try.

I know a one off set will cost a fortune, that's why I just want to buy the rim, and make the centers myself. The rims themselves should be relatively inexpensive, as they are just rolled or spun parts. The problem is I haven't been able to find a source yet.
