The problem with alluminum wheels is when you bend them, and you will bend them, they are paperweights at that point. Plastic is more forgiving and cheaper.

Bingo... it's at that point that plastic is so much better. A bent wheel is no good to anyone.

jayjay283 gave you links. eBay and the Asian (chinese/hong kong) rc shops are going to be about the only places you'll find metal wheels.

And to re-iterate: Unless it's going to be "for display only" you don't want metal wheels.
