You can try:
http://www.mrwheeldeal.com
It seems kinda sketchy the way he does business but I can vouch for him, I got my 285/50/R20 Terra Grapplers with 20x9 MotoMetal 909's mounted, balanced and shipped for about $1800. He'll beat any price you can find, so it might be worth shooting him an email just to see.

Thousands of wheel sites on the internet.  I bought mine from www.discountedwheelwarehouse.com 
Other sites.
www.customwheelsdirect.com
www.customwheel.com
www.wheelmax.com
www.superbuytires.com
www.performanceplustires.com

and more.  Just google custom wheels or custom rims and you'll get a lot of results.

I just ordered AR Dale Jr Cannon wheels with 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers from MrWheelDeal on Monday.  I will let you know how it works out when they get here.  I got the wheels, tires, TPMS sensors and all new Lug nuts delivered for $1550.  This was a few hundred less than anywhere else I looked.

Yes please do.  My nephew is wanting to order some wheels and mrwheel gave him a great quote but I want to make sure the transaction goes smooth.

Things went fine for me, for the most part. It seemed to take a while to get them mounted, balanced and shipped out but other than that it was fine. It took just over 2 weeks to go from placing my order to getting my wheels, and that's with a delay due to weather...

Mrwheeldeal.com came through.  My wheels were delivered yesterday and they look good.  I'm waiting for my ready lift to come in and then I will have it installed and tires/wheels put on! Probably early next week. I'll post pics when done.
