Aluminum hubs

I need a new set of hubs and was thinking about going aluminum to shave a few pounds. I've looked around, but haven't been able to find any. Any suggestions on where to look?

Thanks

Re: Aluminum hubs

I had wilwood disc brakes on my Nova...it had aluminum hubs made for the drum brake spindle. It was a drag race only deal though with .380" rotors. Not sure if they have stock type stuff.

One of my sets of Wilwoods has aluminum hubs and 12.90" vented rotors. Been on the car for ten years with no problems.
