Seeking 16" rims

Anyone know sourse(s) for 16x1.75-2xx, 24 spoke or undrilled? To carry weight not speed. I usually read c&v so posted there, it was suggested that they're used on BikeE, maybe others. Thanks

I have no experience with 16" wheels but have had very good service from Velocity wheels in 20"/406 and 26"/559. They list two 16"/349 rims. (I think that is the size you are looking for.) https://www.velocityusa.com/product/rims/dyad-349

My Catrike Speed uses 349 in front, and I'm sort of faced with the same problem. But a decimal size might be different than that - 305mm?

305mm will be hard to find but here is one.

Not a clue on the Velocity site about fractional vs decimal 16" sizes. .......sigh.........
Should have gone to the source: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#decimal
