20" fixed gear wheelsets

I'm looking to convert a folding bike and I don't want to build some wheels up. Does anyone know who sells these premade. There seems to be a budding 20" mini bike craze that are fixed, but I haven't found a seller that sells just the wheels.

Thanks!

I use my legs to brake too much. I'm able to pay a little more for reliability.

BMX companies would be a good bet. Make sure you get the right axle size, 14mm axles are common among BMX wheels and won't likely fit a folder frame. Also keep over locknut spacing in mind. BMX wheels tend to be 110mm.

I was thinking that a bike polo 20" wheelset was more what I want and would fit most folders better.
