correct wheel for '65 tradewind

I have a 1965 Tradewind and it has these chrome rims that do not look correct. I am a very new owner so I haven't shopped around much but I like the hubcap look. These rims won't take a hubcap. How do I find the right stuff. Is there a car that shares the same bolt pattern?

Help??

I believe that GM 6-lug wheels will work just watch the offset. I have chrome wheels on my '65 GT and want to go to the Aluminum modular.

Generally speaking automobile and light truck wheels DO NOT have an adequate weight rating for your trailer.

You must use wheels that have a "minimum" of a 2600 pound rating.
