Where to buy 17" wheels for 250X?

Where can I source cheap 17" wheels? What can I expect for tire life running NWGP on a 250X?

Aside from wheels, what are the other "must haves"? Oversize front rotor/caliper relocator? Other? I don't care about being competitive...just want to give this a try.

I've had the same 17's on both the 2004 250x and a 2006 450x
Wheels from a CRF250r should work as well you just need to buy the other front spacer.

For brakes they did move the front bracket but I'm not sure what year.

I've got a relocator and a big rotor that was pulsing a little bit laying around somewhere.
Edit: I think I have a front hub as well.

Wait, you don't need overpriced RIMS, New Graphics, a Slipper and new seat? - FML

I just run normal brakes, and have not had issue. I did put a stainless line on the front.
