Hi everyone, I am trying to find some new spoked for my CL350 front rim (19"). There are plenty of options for the CB rim but not the CL it seems like. I know I can go to Buchanans and get some there but I am looking for the budget route and I am fine with some zinc plated spokes. Anyone have a source for this??

I would check if csmnl.com has the right spokes for my model and year rather than trying to safe money on the wheels which are essentially safety items. I once bought cheap spokes for a 450 and it was impossible to true the rim because they didn't fit right and the nipples were soft as butter. Never again. David Silver spares US sells also quality products. Both are a bit pricey but it's worth it.

I'm not looking for cheap quality, I just do not need stainless steel and do not want to spend the extra money to get them, I am fine with zinc plated. I see places like 4 into 1 and common motor selling zinc which I am sure are fine quality, they just don't have any for CL. I'm not trying to find some cheapies from china on ebay or something.

Alan, I'm looking some spokes for a 19" WM3 Takasago rims I got for my 360. Could you please confirm these are the right does for my front disc hub and rear drums with 19" WM3?
I can't positively confirm that without having the hubs and rims in front of me to measure. Please have a look at this Spoke length calculator to see what I mean. I've used this calculator and with the measurements I took of my stock hubs and rims I got the same spoke length as stock, so this calculator does work.
Give it a shot before you buy.

I spotted this today Excel-Rim-HISTORY so if anyone might think they're buying 'made in USA' parts from one of the spoked wheel shops in California, you may want to ask first instead of assuming they are.

I gave up on my search for the front spokes and went with Buchanan.
Part numbers they sent were
