Finding Wheel Troubles

So the GM 8x180 lug pattern has been out since 2011 and here it is 2013 and I cannot find a 22' wheel in stock anywhere especially fuel. Backorder with no ETA? How can you run a business if you aren't producing any wheels...aggravated. Any help?

I know that feel. I've been trying to get my hands on a single BMF for a spare since August.

rob if you were the wheel manufactuer and knew the market for 22s on a HD is very small and gm is selling them now
why build them when you can sell many times more 1500's

That lug pattern is here to stay so it would be a great idea to produce a few....sounds like a hell of a money maker for a wheel company to corner the market. But, I guess they know more than me.
