Where to get rover wheels

I need a set of four 15X10 or 12 rover pattern wheels with about 4" backspacing.

Williamette Wheel in Oregon used to make rover pattern wheels (Lonn Howard's got some) but now they've gone under. Stockton makes them, but they're crazy expensive.

There is a ton of these on the UK market, and they're all made in the US by Unique wheel I believe. Anyone know if it is possible to get these direct from Unique?

Any other ideas for a cheap source for a wide wheel?

I was thinking of cutting out some NAS 88 wheel centers and welding them into new outers, but getting them lined up and properly centered and everything sounds like a real pain. These will be for road use as well, so for an extra few bucks I'd prefer something professional.

thanks

Unique won't sell direct. I'm getting some 15"s made for my DII, and went through US Wheel, who then sent me to Summit for pricing.

Unique was not very good to deal with, and the distributor they sent me to for pricing never called back. However, they are the supplier to Atlantic British for the DII wheels, but that doesn't help you.

Try someone like Gulf Coast Rovers, or you can call Unique. Who knows, you may have better luck than I did.

I just bought a set of 15x10 wheels form high-impact. The plain steel wheels with 4"BS are $69 each. beadlocks are $100 more I think.

Allied makes some nice ones for a reasonable price in any width/backspacing. You can get them with or with out beadlocks.

Call Alan or Mimi at GulfCoastRovers, as I know Alan has some interesting 15x10 wheels (some chrome, some white wagon wheel I believe). They are pretty inexpensive compared to the regular black nugget.
