What size wheels and tires

I purchased a 1964 Tradewind and need to purchase new wheels and tires before I can tow it home. I want to do this once so I am looking for steel wheels with a baby moon hub cap.

The trailer currently has two mismatched wheels that are P205/70R14.

From what I read in an old 64 brochure they came with 7.00 x 15 with 8 ply tires.

The currant wheel bolt pattern is 6 lugs, 5 1/2" on center across hub and 2 3/4" lug to lug. The hub size is 3 1/4".

I spoke with a national trailer company and they only carry 6.00 x 15 wheels.

The local Airstream dealers records only go back to 69.

Any help would be appreciated.

6 x 5 1/2 x 15. No big deal Any good local trailer repair place can get them Or get em on the WEB. Dexter, Southwest axle or Redneck trailer supply....etc, etc. Come in black or grey. A local dealer (NOT a travel trailer dealer...I use horse trailer places) can help you avoid shipping charges possibly. They also know about the size of the center hole for axle clearances.
