I do a search on craigslist and such and all I find are the lowrider type rims. I have a 1946 Schwinn and I want to (At least temporarily) buy a wheelset for it so I can ride it. Where can I get a good price and nice wheels? Thanks
ebay or find a donor bike.

bikepartsusa.com has them for about $25 a piece.
You can also have them built for you. I'd probably go with a coaster brake hub and alloy disc-specific rims, as they're curved and have no braking surface. But then, you'd get super modern style rims, which would look very out of place on your bike.

Keep a eye out on CL and Ebay,I just picked up 2 sets of cruiser wheels with tires on CL that are new take offs from 2 Trek cruisers. First set is solid black with black stainless spokes and a Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub $35 with the shifter assy, the second set is silver with stainless spokes and Promax hubs $25. The guy put wheel sets with 144 spokes on the bikes as soon as he bought them. I can never find good cruiser wheels when I am looking for them either and now that I got these I don't know which bikes to put them on as I have a few nice frame sets in need of wheels.
