76 29' ambassador 16" rims and tire?

I am redoing a 1976 Ambassador. The 7.00 x 15 tires are shot. I have a repair shop and I have a set of four Michelin ltx 225-75-16's at the shop. It would be cheeper for me to buy new wheels than tires. I have seen alot of talk about putting 16" wheels/ tires on Airstreams. Will these tires fit on my trailer?

Thanks Sam

I used the exact same tires on my 1976 Argosy 26 renovation and they fit with no issues at all.

Just finishing up my 76. Now my wife wants me to keep the original 15" wheels. I can get good price on some LT235-75-15. The original 7.00-15 tire has a height of 27.8". The 235's height is 29.2. Think it will work?

Yes they will work just fine. Many Airstreams are running 235/75/15 tires.
