Where can I find black spoke 15X8 wheels with 2&1/2 inch backspacing for my Samauri?

My buddy got a set for his wrangler from Town Fair Tire, they were $35 each, no shipping or anything, just had to be ordered. He got them in around 3 days. Have you checked any of your local places? I often wondered why people skip over the locals first, sometimes they'll surprise you.

I've tried locals and can't get nothing but 3&3/4 backing and then its 2 week wait and 68.00 each. 4 wheel warehouse is across country and the shipping will eat up what I could save closer by if I could find them. Tried a place in Ackron, Ohio and Wheeling, WV both said 3&3/4 is all they carry. I checked Spidertrax website and maybe I'll order from them. Town Fair Tire doesn't seem to mail order.

I got mine here:

http://www.petepaulsen.com/Catalogofwheels/CircleTrack/CIRCLETRACK.htm

15x8 w/ 2" backspace and thicker centers they use on circle track cars. He can custom build any wheel offset or backspace you want.Mine worked out to $46 each delivered. They where raw(no paint) but fully welded(take a look at the welds on your wheels
). I'm trying to score a friends set of 15x10s with 3" backspace for my Toy axles.

That free shipping is a rip off, they just turn around and got me for a 20 or 25 $ handling charge, would have worked out to about the same price.
I've got a Tracker rear in my zuke and it's about 4 inches wider than stock with the 3 & 3/4 inch backspaced wheels. It looks like a frog so I've got to set the front out with the 2&1/2" wheels. I'm hoping the extra inch of backspacing and the extra inch wide rim will give me the extra 2" on each side.
Thanks Guys! for all the help.

you could also install wheel spacers on the front. Trail tough has them for about $100 a pair and I think Aftermarket 4x4 has them cheper than that.
