I am interested in buying a pair of 20" rims for a child's road bike I am building. Anyone have suggestions where to buy?

A "family" (read BMX) bike shop should have them or know where to get them. Also try www.sheldonbrown.com. That's a clearing house for all kinds of oddball bike stuff.
For higher quality rims, somebody who specializes in medium- to high-end recumbents should help. A lot of 'bents run 20-inch wheels.

Check out shops that sell recumbents. It's a common wheel size.

I'm sorry, I don't have any information on 20" rims but I do have a question. What kind of frame are you using for your child's bike and how old (what size) is your kid. I have a nine-year-old boy who would love to have a road bike but I can't find one small enough for him.

Thanks.
I'd look for a package deal.nee Spoke Wrench

Rims should be easy, any LBS will be able to help you. Spokes in the necessary, short length are sometimes hard to find.
