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

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.
