Overlander '65 wants black wheels/cone hubs?

Hello all. We've taken care of various inside this and that's in our newly purchased 65 Overlander. We are ready to roll...sorta', kinda! One big delay. Our new tires have been waiting for wheels/hubs for three weeks now. We put our name on the Vintage Trailer Supply's call list for the purchase of wheels: 15' black 15X6JJ 6 on 5.5 and cone hubcaps to fit wheels when they came in (two-three weeks ago). I called today, as I hadn't heard from anyone at Vintage. They forgot to call us and the wheel and hub shipment we were waiting on has since come and gone. I was told the wheels/hubs roll off the truck as fast as they get them in. Now we are back on their list once again for another wait of two-three weeks until next shipments availability. Kimberly (customer service gal) said they don't take orders ahead of time, or I would have ordered and paid for wheels/hubs over the phone today.

Is anyone aware of where we can get the same (or the like) 15" 6 on 5.5 black wheels & cone hubcaps (would like nice chrome) near our area (Columbus, Ohio), or online? Here are the wheels & hubcaps at Vintage Trailer Supply (middle of page): http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/-s/76 We would like to keep as close to original 65 Overlander look as possible. We are not finding other options in our search. We wanted to use our original clip on hubs, but that doesn't look possible, and we've given up that idea. We sure would appreciate anyone's help here, as we are very anxious to get rolling...literally. Thanks, Vicki

I got mine from these guys. Fast shipping. They are Dexter Wheels.
15 X 6 655 Black OEM style wheel for use with Baby Moon Hub Caps
The 655 means 6 on 5.5

The wheels are not magic. Go to any good trailer (I use a good utility trailer shop) place and order them. It takes about two days at the longest. My last ones were 35 dollars....painted white/ black or silver.
