1964 Ford F-350 Wrecker...oddball wheels?

My friend purchased a 1964 F-350. He swapped a Holmes 440 boom onto it that he had. He plans on a full restoration. he had an exhaust put on and got some rust free doors, he's still looking for a cab and front sheetmetal. well we were looking at the goofy 6 lug wheels, where the centers rivet to the rim it's all swollen with rust and we do not trust the wheels what so ever. we were going to swap '70's for spindles and outer hubs, but they're different. is there any other option, other than to swap to a later style 8 lug front I beam and rear axle? anyone done this? or know where to get good 6 lug wheels? looking for suggestions and direction here! thanks! here's a video of it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gl6E63zRns

All 1953/66 F350's have 6 lug 7.25" bolt circle wheels, the only Ford trucks to have this pattern. 16's, 17.5's and 19.5's were available but any of these wheels are very hard to find.

And, if the truck has DRW, these wheels are different than SRW.
