wheel specifications from newbie

Hello I am new to the forum and have recently purchased a 1985 defender 90 with 300 tdi motor. The 90 is in need of new wheels and tires. The 90 does have disc brakes. I was wondering if anyone could confirm some of the wheel specifications so that I may explore my options? What I do know is the bolt pattern of 5x6.5, pitch? 16x1.5 but do not know center hub bore measurement or wheel offset. It currently has steel wheels and I am thinking of alloys. I apologize for the amateur questions but would appreciate some help.

If you look at the header on this page you will see TIRES/WHEELS which gives some good info, though I think the links are dated. You might look at the Terrafirma alloys that Justin @ Lucky8 sells; http://lucky8llc.com/

Hey if you are looking for black steel rims in a 15x8 size with 3.75" backspacing, I have some that I am looking to sell. These were never used. I went with 16" instead. They are Pro Comp RockCrawler Xtreme Rims code 87-5856. I have 4 of them.
