Scroll through these wheels, you may find one you like. They are custom for lip, offset, and bolt pattern. A bit pricey but, you must pay for exactly what you want. I'd like a set of 18" Cragar (1960,s) Classic myself.

Well, I had three coats of marine grade powdercoat applied. Some German brand that's designed for harsh environments. So I paid $100 per wheel to have it done, but most shops are probably half that price.

Thanks. I'm running the 2.5" leveling kit from Auto Spring. The Add A Leaf kit, no blocks in the back. The kit is all steel, no aluminum. I'm very happy with the ride, still comfortable but just a little bit firmer. But one thing I would recommend is painting the leafs with two coats of POR-15 before you have them installed, because they will rust if you don't. The factory leafs are already coated, so having one rusty leaf looks pretty odd. POR-15 is a strong coating that a lot of people use on their frames, axles, etc. It can go right over rust and prevents more from forming. Very durable stuff!
