1972 K5 steel wheel HELP.

Hello All - I'm in the process of my resto project and I need some assistance. I want to keep the classic/steel wheel look with hubcaps on the Blazer, but I want to increase the normal wheel size to a 16 or 17 (instead of the 15). What the most cost effective way to do so? The Blazer will have a 2.5 lift and I don't want to go any wider than 8.5. I will more than likely be putting on 35s (looking for that taller classic look vs bulging mud look). Any guidance or suggestions where to look or buy would be much appreciated.

When you find replacements, I'd like to buy your stock wheels, if you'll ship them! I'm looking to put disc brakes on my '68 six lug.
