small backspacing wheel links

Hello,
I'm looking for large diameter wheels (17-19") wheels with small backspacing. I would like something about 8-10 inches wide with a backspacing of 3-4inches. If anyone has any good links to wheel sites or knows of stock wheels of any make with these specifications, please reply. Just about any bolt pattern could work.
Thanks,
Scott

You are probably going to have to get a custom set made. I heard Colorado Custom can pretty much do anything you want as long as there's a tire that will fit it. Here's the website:Colorado Custom . There's not to big of a selection on wheels, but if you're not too picky you can probably find something. Good luck!

Gt is right......... By the way, thas a sweet ride in your Avatar!

Any "quality" billet wheel manfacturer can build you a wheel with the exact backspace that you are wanting. There is a few limiting factors like wheel center design and wheel barrel drop center locations but the backspacing you mentioned should be a failty easy fit for any of them. Budnik, Billet specialties, and Colorado Custom all produce high end Billet wheels and can get you fixed up.

Look at Weld Wheels. I had to have some with just the opposite -- deep backset -- and custom wheels were rather expensive at $1800 a set. Weld Draglites come in many different offsets, from deep to shallow. You might find something you can uses, and the price is much better at around $200 a wheel or less depending on size.
