Help with rims

I have a 1968 Sovereign three of the rims are the same, the fourth is different. What is the correct size of the rims supposed to be? Is there anyone that sells original replacements?

We have 5 rims for our '66 Trade Wind. But only 3 of them have the clips to hold the baby moon hubcaps. We have the full moon wheel covers but I am keeping a eye out for a 4th with the clips.

How are your rims different?

Width?
Diameter?
Off set?

The "standard" for your rims should be 15.00" x 7.00" 6 lug on 5.50"bolt circle zero offset. I recently purchased 3 for my '56 from Dexstar in Elkhart, they came in at $33.00/ea. powder coat grey.

The one rim is a little wider and the offset is different. The other three are all the same and have clips for hub caps. It appears that the previous owner must have damaged a rim and used the closest thing that he found.
