New Wheels

I need to replace the wheels on my 64 Overlander. Any thoughts regarding steel wheels vs. aluminum wheels?? Also does anyone know the speces for the wheels including bore size, lug nut specs, bolt hole pattern, load capacity etc..? The tires in the owners manual indicate a size of 7:00x15. What is the actual size of the wheel? Also any thoughts on radial tires and if so any particular brand??

Thanks!

Why not take a old wheel with you and have tire shop mach it up. The radial tires are the only way to go. When I swiched from bias tires to radial I picked up 2 miles per gallon on my tow vehicle.
Aluminum vs steel , depends on how much money you want spend.
