Bought a 1966

It is local and in decent shape. No leaks, solid floor and all appliances work except the cooktop is really rusted. Been sitting 10 years so first order of business is to replace the cracked tires. Will aluminum wheels 6 bolts on 5.5 with 0 offset fit and work well? I can get the wheels already mounted with a good set of tires.

It looks like you have the right wheel described. If you are not in a big hurry, I'd suggest waiting to find someone selling their wheels and tires as they "improve" their rides to 16" wheels and tires. I picked up a full set of 15's from a 2014 for $500 and they had approximately 95% tread left on them.

That is what I have found. The seller is upgrading to 16's and selling his 15's. Another great point is he is three hours away so no cost of shipping .Solves a couple of big problems for me. Thanks for confirming they will work.
