Thanks for all the ideas WRT custom wheel builders.  I pretty much knew the
answer to my questions but still had to pursue it a little bit just so I
really knew.  I called several wheel manufacturers about building a new 15 x
8 Ronal R8, but in 16" diameter instead of 15", and I asked for it to be
forged.  Basically -  it ain't gonna happen.  Cost prohibitive really, among
other issues.  Oh well - we can dream, and until you ask the answer is
always "no"...

So unless anybody here has a special "in," that is what it will remain, just
a dream...
