Custom spokes and wheel lacing

Not sure where to start here. I know there are companies out there who will make custom spokes for lacing different rims to a given hub, who have you guys had good experiences with?

I don't see much info online regarding my specific idea, but I'm about to pick up my new Ural, and have been looking specifically at tires that are available. It seems I'd have a much easier time finding a blocky dual sport tire with an appropriate load rating in an 18", but don't really want to pay $600/wheel to get the factory 18" set (not to mention they seem to be notoriously out of true from the factory).

It's all just research and planning right now, but I've not dealt with re-lacing wheels before and figured this might be a decent place to ask around, after reading about all the motard conversions.
