Thanks for the assistance and ideas so far.

Found some polished 8" x 4" at Miller tire: http://www.millertire.com/products/puller-tires/3-50-8/8x4-aluminum-wheel-hub-3-4-bearings/

Some 350 X 8" here: http://nicholsperformance.net/Tires.htm

Will keep searching and hoping for alloy...

After many hours of searching, I have about concluded, such a thing does not exist. Found 8" golf-cart alloy rims. But, nothing to match them in a 12". Plus, they are too wide. :(

If something is available, there is a remote chance of finding something for a go-kart or a trailer. Moving on for now...

I did have fun being distracted while looking at the puller stuff. :mrgreen:

How about a set of Chrome wheel covers, would that do?
Thanks

For now I'll pass on the hub caps. This is for my new machine. I'll either go polished aluminum or coated...

Search this site. http://nicholsperformance.net/Tires.htm

Scroll down and find 23x10.5x12 mounted on alloy Douglas rims that look pretty good.

Thanks,

If I could locate matching 12" rims, I would consider cutting down the width by an inch and having them re-welded.
