JE makes them on custom order (min. batch size is 4). I recall a member here selling a set of 0.25mm "over" JEs quite recently (JE use OEM Honda rings). I am running 0.5mm OS in my build

If you have to buy OS je's and they are not on the shelf at a distributor you have to buy 4. My suggestion would be find another member that is doing a rebuild and get a set for them as well
