Default Anyone build steel wagon wheels?

I got a smoker project going on, was wondering if anybody here had built or can build some heavy wagon type wheels, and would wanna sell them to me. I need 16 wheels, pit should weigh probably 650 or so guessing.

I thought about trying to make them, but doubt Id ever get them true. Let me know. Thanks

All I have is some drop 20" pipe, so that's what I'm gonna go with. Will use 5/8" rebar as my spoke, and I've started the hub. Bought some sch. 40 pipe, and 3/4" sealed bearings. Getting them to fit just right is a bear, but it's coming along. just worried about everything getting out of line when I start tacking.
