68 rims and tires??

Hey all.
I just picked up a 68 and it needs stock rims (5.5 x 16) and tires.
Do you have recommendations for used rims and the right tire size/model. My research says 225 75 16.
Any help appreciated!
Thanks

Is it a 88 or 109? I think the 109's came with 32" tall tires, if my google is working correctly, and that would be 7.50-16 or similar.

Try and find a 7.5/16.........if you can't find that, use a 235/85

The 16" wheel will give you many more tire options.

It's not a bug eye.
