I have six 5.5 inch wide wheels for when I raced a GP Spidget. Minilites (or clones) from the 70s. Also have spacers and lug nuts.

Should have added that I need 5.5" width, 3.625 backspace, and to fit 7/16" studs.

James... Don't get hung up on the wheel stud size. It's easy to go from 3/8s to 7/16s with someone who has a mill. If you get some wheels with the 3/8s using acorn nuts don't take the insert out. Drill it out and you have something that will take acorn nuts or shank type nuts. Depending on the wheel you may have to bore out the area around the hole to take the bigger socket needed to put the 7/16 nuts in.

I can let you have two very nice Revolution 5 1/2 wide, with the right offset, for $60 each plus shipping. With lugs for 7/16" studs -
