16.5\" wheel with 5 on 5.5 bolt patern options???

I got a set of 38" swampers for free with well over half the tread left on them. The only problem is I have a 5 on 5.5 bolt patern (dana 60 and dana 44) axles and the wheel required for the tires is 16.5. I have done some looking around and haven't been able to find much as far as cheap wheels. Does anyone know of a place where i can get some cheap 16.5 wheels with a 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern? I don't care at all what they look like just price. My other option is to switch my bolt pattern to eight lug however I don't want to do that due to cost concerns. HELP!

Seth

The 16.5 wheel is mainly for heavy duty use for 3/4 ton and up trucks so they are 8 lug. To get them in 5 lug would be a special use type of thing and not that popular so I doubt you will find them cheap or plentiful.

It may be cheaper to sell the 16.5 tires and use the money to buy 15's. The other option is build your own wheels.
