Where can I get 18" wheels that fit?

I am looking to go with 18" wheels for my 1968 halfcab, but there doesn't seem to be a huge selection out there. I prefer a polished wheel and like the look of the spoked wheel.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

Your biggest problem is finding the "polished" look. Everybody likes black now a days. I guess you and I are the only oddballs. BTW these are 15"

Yeah I know. I have a nice set of Stic wheels right now. I tried the aluminum "slots" with the holes in them but they are everywhere.

What's your budget?

Did you know that 95% of all statistics are made up on the spot?

I really had NOT planned on spending $400-$500 a wheel.

Why 18"? If you drop down to 17" you have a lot more selection.

I found a set of new 18" tires really cheap that's the only reason.

Okay, just checking. Do you like any of KMC's wheels? How about Fuel wheels?

Deals on tires are pretty easy to find. Sell those and buy a set of 15s.

I like the Fuels too. https://www.wildhorses4x4.com/category/fuel-wheels-EB
We've only got the 17's listed, and those are probably the more popular size for EB's anyway, as the others were saying. But some of the Anza series are available in 18's too, if not all of them.
Might not be what I'm looking for on my EB (still love 15's!), but thinking of doing some narrower 17's on my F350.
