My HBS doesn't carry them and I wanted to make BMs wheat this weekend. Anyone know a good substitute?

per midwest:

Has a unique mahogany/walnut wood aroma, with some resinous/candilike character and some citrus. Substitutes: Pride of Ringwood with a touch of Goldings and Cascade. This hop will be hard to find in 2008.

I have found Simcoe to be pretty unique. I am down to about 6 oounces and am concerned if they will last me through the year.

You're SOL. Simcoe is a trademark hop that is relatively new. It was bred for it's specific flavor.

Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, and Saaz are hops that have no substitue.

According to the substitution chart in BYO this month there is no sub. There have been Simcoe hops for sale on ebay though if you want to go try and win some.
