Wire Wheels?

I know I have seen real wire wheels with real wire spokes, but I can't remember where. Anyone know which vendors sell them?
I need something a bit stonger than the Hobby Lobby ones.

Hey, Pat-

If you're feeling sporty, eBay's got some here....they're 4 inchers.

My usual first stop is the auctions, of course

This vendor's a good one, done business before.

Go to the Source for the 4" dia.

The ones that are mentioned above as on ebay, are the same ones made by Top Flight. These are often specified as 4-3/8"
as well as 4" diameters. I have not had them in hand, but my guess is they are about 4" diameter.

I have watched three of the auctions for these wheels (by this seller). They always end over the price Tower sells them for...
