Thanks for posting those KC. They are the 15x7" wheels and that should be stamped somewhere on that wheel. You can measure from one nub to the other to determine hubcap size.
Here is a pic I found of a 16x5; you can see the wider gap between the rim and the center.
I just discovered they are 16x5's

The 15x7's are always a great find, they do make the taller tires for them and they allow use of disc brakes.

That blue wheel looks to be 16.5" hard to see on my phone. Same as this?

They could be. I definitely know the tire size is 7.5-16; I zoomed in to verify.

Those would be 16" wheels then.

Well I ended up picking up the rims. I figure I can use them until I find a set of 16's. Plus, couldn't beat the price of 5 for $80. Thanks!!

Funky61, quick question, do you know if the 16 x 5.5" rims can be used with disc brakes? I assume they can since they were used in the 70s. Thanks!

Yes they should work with disc brakes. Just make sure the wheel has the 4 nubs.

Thank you! I just got a source on a few here in Denver. If he has 4, I will buy them. I guess I will clean up the 15's I bought yesterday and sell them.
