These guys have 1 in stock, no ETA on more. But thats better than nothing
Are you sure on the "1 in stock" part? I typed a four into the Qty box and 4 were added to the shopping cart.

Alright I give in!!!!! I'm not as knowledgeable as you on how to manufacturer a wheel.......

Can I just want someone to make them? Is that okay? I'll also pay a premium to get them. Who ever makes them can cut them, cast them, file them....don't really care. I just was a 17" diameter, 10" wide wheel that looks like a vintage Ford wheel from the early 80's.

As long as you're willing to pony up the ~$4500 or so it would take to get a set of four made, you can contract out and begin the process to have a set made on Monday. -shrug- Nobody's saying you *can't* have a set made or that you shouldn't, only that your estimation of the time/trouble/work and costs involved are or were way off. If you're willing to pay out, there's no real problem.

Of course, as someone pointed out, there's a very similar Dodge wheel now - making adapters for those or having them machined (the hub size is different IIRC - even if the bolt pattern is the same) is going to be a lot cheaper than having new wheels created from scratch.
