Correct rims / tires for new Axle

We replaced the complete axle assembly on our 1964 Bambi II. We had a new Dura Torque axle, 5 on 4.5", 3500#, with 10" self adjusting brakes and shocks installed. I want to put on the proper/ correct rims and tires on.

I did the same on our 65 Caravel. Our trailers are basically the same. I used 15" x 5", 5 on 4.5 conventional steel wheels with baby moons. 5" width is the key. Tires are ST205 75r 15. I used Maxxis brand trailer tires. Wheels and caps can be ordered from VTS or I ordered from etrailer because VTS was out of stock when I needed them. Price is similar. I had the tires put on locally. Hope this helps!
