Newbie Hot Rod Question

Great site!!! Tons of info for a beginner like me! I'm planning my build right now. I'm trying to plan it so I will not have to many hang ups along the way. I've reached a point where I need some advice location decent priced rear wheels. I'm wanting to run a 16 x 18 rear wheel but I'm having a hard time finding a any that my pocketbook can afford! Any of y'all have info on websites? I searched the fourm but the topics that came back were mainly about tire size on wide wheels.. Thanks!

FYI...this hot rodding addiction just ain't cheap, for that size wheel you'll probably have to have custom ones made.

Only a couple manufactures sell that size. If you dont those select few styles, you will need to have custom made. Either way - those will not be cheap. I priced those sizes myself and was quoted around $1100 each for what I wanted. I like the tires and how the sidewalls would look, but I was not ready to pay that, so I stayed with 15" diameter.

JMHO but you're putting the cart before the horse. While it's important to know what style or size of wheel you like it's more important to get the rest of the car togethor first. Different body styles, suspensions, rear ends, fenders, ride height etc come first. Then look for your wheels and tires.
