I'll be replacing my 15" 5-spoke wheels with 16" within a couple weeks. They're the wheels typically delivered with late model flying clouds. But only 4 available. Please let me know via IM if interested.

I just bought four of these...

16 Inch Sendel T05-66655SM.

I like that they have machined inserts that match the rest of the wheel and cover up the lug nuts, instead of the standard chrome dome hub cover.

Folks, a word of caution... When you put those aluminum wheels on, make sure you check the lugs every 50 miles for the first 350 miles. I am currently repairing EXTENSIVE damage caused by a (now) customer not being told this when they had the fancy new wheels put on. Two loose lugs and the studs will quickly saw right through the rim throwing it from the hub. I am amazed at the amount of damage this cause.
