Welcome aboard! I hope your search is fruitful. You might try posting in the Mechanics thread. They would tend to stockpile things like wheel.

Most bike shops toss out 10-20 each week.

Try finding bicycle cooperatives. They frequently take in donated bicycles to part out to other builds. There's one I pass which has a small number of rusting wheels out back of its building.
