1946 spartan

hey guys I just purchased an 46 Spartan manor that has been sitting in the desert for the last 39 years the previous owner pulled the axle and suspension out and its long gone so Ill be installing a new torsion axle and modern brakes wheels and tires. I have the torsion axle halves covered and I know these came with 16 inch wheels but does anyone know of what tires size they had or what size will work not looking for factory original but just something that looks good. I can adjust the torsion axle ride height up and down so that's not an issue.
Thanks!

I believe they originally used 16" steel wheels and bias ply tires.
