Speaking of tires, it would help my piece of mind to replace the rear 8 ply 8 x 17.5" recapped mudgrips that I put on nearly 40 years ago.
I put some nice LTs on the front maybe ten years ago, but now find a huge lack of anything like them now.
Except maybe:

I would also go with 16" rims and tires even with the small size difference.
Important to share info on this.

I ordered some STA tires to replace the 2 I did not replace when I bought the truck. The ones on there are pretty old, hard and thump really hard when I use vehicle.

I had one wheel powder-coated in Satin. It is a 3-clip 16x5”

Jim,

I ordered a 7.00x15 M/S tire to be placed on the rear. I believe they are 6 ply, I ordered them via Summit Racing for delivery to their local to me store. I can mount and balance them myself.

Need that exact wheel for my ‘63 3/4t, in an 8 lug. Have the same dog dish hubcaps for the rear, but have yet to find matching front caps w/ hole to accommodate the front dial locking mechanism. Love that look!

Mighty fine looking truck, good looking young man standing beside it, maybe a future GMC guy.
