    All the late ones I’ve seen were wider like seven or eight no idea if they were stock though.

    Think a 15x7 could work on the wagon...I really want a 16" rim and a taller skinnier tire, but budget may push me towards something like these - kind of the classic steel rim look, and can run a 30x9.5 as is (read no additional expense for suspension upgrades).

    Fwiw I run a 235/85/16 on a five inch rim I think a 9.50 would fit on a five inch 15 inch rim.

    Factory steel wheels from my '75 are 6" wide.

    I've been looking at those too...to me they look wider than stock, 7 or even 8" wide. I'm basing that mostly on how those tires look on those wheels.

    If my research is correct, the L78-15 should be around 8.5" wide...so based on the photos, then a rim width inside bead of 15x7 would be a pretty good guess?
