Question for you cruiser guys

I was given this old murray s s cruiser,the paint is in good condition, seat is dull, rims are spotted with rust, but that's OK because I am goint to change the seat and I want to get new rims, I'm thinking three speed Internal hub, now I've seen them for about 130.00 a set ,the Question is, does anybody here have a favorite store where they consider better then lets say chubby's?

NiagaraCycle they can be a bit slow on shipping but buy more than $100 and it is free. I order from them at least 3-4 times a year. Otherwise it is my LBS.
