I recently started working at a hot rod shop which is where i have relocated my tumbler. Through some brainstorming and such i have decided to vear away from the traditional matt black color and im going to build all the body panels from carbon fiber... and using diverters and an exhaust igniter to make a dual overhead exhaust divertable into a single 6" pipe that can ignite using hotlicksexhaust.com's igniter

“I am, however, having issues locating the proper rims and/or someone
who can make the rims i need for the rear. I want 16.5x12's but i can
work with 17x12's. Seems they are going to have to be custom as i have
yet to locate any of those sizes as duallies. Any tips or links would
help a lot.”

There are no dually factory made steel wheels for 16.5 X 12.
The original movie Tumbler used 16.5 x 12 shell wheels with welded in
dually centers and no wheel adapters.
gez1967 acquired some of the original tires mounted on custom dually rims.
In this case his photo images are worth many thousand woods.
Look at his build in Tumbler build section titled: UK Batman Tumbler builder

In the past custom wheel companies have quoted these wheels between
1000-2000.00 each.
Judging from your building and welding skills I would imagine that you
could weld them up yourself.
PS: Your Tumbler build looks outstanding and your workmanship of
