While they are not a true "budd" wheel (very close though), you will find that they are still called "budd" wheels.
They are not brand specific either. Actually have some Ford wheels on my 81 Chevy Class C.
I suggest (it's what I did), you call around to the local mom and pop type tire shops and tell them what you need. I changed over from 16.5's to 16's for $50 a wheel. 6 x 50 = 300.
In addition to buying the wheels from them, they cut me a good deal on some 10 ply rated tires as well.
If you don't have any luck there, try some of the local salvage yards next.
Anyway, if you find some, make sure that they are deep enough to clear the disc brake calipers on the front.
The four on the back of mine are rear only, they won't work on the front because of brake clearance issues.
I'm going to get a spare soon and I'm just going to make sure the offset is deep enough to be and all position wheel for my rig.
Good luck in your search!
