What do you have?
Something to consider is a Sun rim off a 78-82 CanAm 250, 350, 370 or 400. I'm into restoring these and they all have 40 spoke wheels. The bonus is that they are waaaay wider than any standard rim at 2.75" instead of standard 2.15" dirt size. I don't think I have any good extras, but I'll dig through my pile. I know you can still get them from Buchanan, but their pricey. If I remember the stock rim width is 2.5.

I've got a GSPD and always thought these would make up a sweet 2nd set of wheels if I had extra hubs.
