Wheels?

I have been looking for a set of wheels. I am looking for 17X9's with 5" backspacing for the rear and I am having a hard time finding the 5" backspacing at a decent price. Seems like everything with that much backspacing has to be custom made, $$$$$! Can you guys point me in the right direction of where to buy wheels at a decent price? I don't have any particular wheel in mind. I would just like to look until I find something I like.

I don't know what you have, but if its a standard chevy bolt patern, look at third gen camaros, they mostly had around 5" backspace. Or you could run a 2" spacer and run 4th gen camaro wheels or C5 'vette wheels and come in large diameters like 17X9. They usually have around 6-7" backspace.

The wheels I am going to need is 5x4.5" bolt pattern for a 66 Charger. 17x9 in the rear and 17x8 in the front. I have found a few brand that I really like, but $$$$ to get a custom backspacing.
