16.5" rims?

I've been searching and searching and searching for 16.5" wheels that fit my TJ. Are they impossible to find or what?? I found some tires that are half decent and will last me a while, but they're a 16.5" rim. I don't need anything fancy. Honestly I'd prefer all black D window or soft 8. Just plain Jane wheels. Anyone know of any companies that make them?

I wish that was affordable right now. I'm looking into an 8.8 swap and 37's. so 16.5" rims would be nice for used hummer tires as well.

How hard was it to set that up? I'm kinda nervous about trying to design a suspension that works.

it is not hard..I see that you are in nw fla..I am located about 60 miles north of Tallahassee if you would like to come check mine out in detail.you say you are doing an axle swap anyway so by the time you buy axles,high dollar wheels and spacers you might could do 1 tons for about the same money or not much more.if you want more info on my cj7 just check my garage or under "highly modified cj7" in the for sale section

Awesome I'm over here towards destin in a little town called navarre. The axle swap is the plan because the way I drive I'm gonna end up destroying this 35. But my budget also includes tools. I need to buy a welder and metal working tools. And I only have basic hand and air tools.
