WTB: Cheap wheels in NoVA/DC area

I'm in the market for two 16" wheels to fit a Defender. Looks and condition don't matter as long as they'll hold a tire but price is a contributing factor.

My efforts to do some work on my 110 are currently being thwarted by recurring unpleasant weather, so I'm going to attempt to shoehorn it into my miniscule garage. Previous thread suggestions of channeling out the concrete floor, raising the door height, etc. are all non-starters leaving me to temporarily lower the ride height. I plan on on using two wheels with lower profile tires installed, which will hopefully buy me the extra few inches I need. If you're clearing out your garage or looking to unload some wheels you've been hoarding, let me know before I head out to a junkyard.

That's exactly the look I'm going for, tough but approachable.

Thanks, but I'd hate to split a good set apart. Also, I'm looking for something in the ~$50 range.

Let the air out of the tires. I've done it a few times when doing head gaskets on lifted Disco's.

The pick n pull at quantico usually has a good selection of discos on stock tires and alloys. I think they get something like $35/ea
