I don't know of any for the rear, but a ZX14 Front Wheel fits without issues, so search for aftermarket ZX14 Fronts.

You're not going to find any replacement aftermarket rear wheels. I did extensive research for an LSR project even trying to get one made. I settled for a CarbonFiber front wheel and left the rear alone (so far). The CF front with ceramic bearings made a noticeable difference to steering but they are NOT cheep.

It's a BST (BlackStoneTEK) wheel. I ordered it with the bearings installed. The are in So. Africa but have one US distributor. I'll look through my notes and get back.
