The Bolt pattern would be 8 lug x 165mm (PCD)
Rim 7.5x16
Tire 235/75 R16

Or

PCD (Pitch Circle Diameter) = 165mm

I think he means original equipment


I don't know if the specs are the same in your country but an e350 here would have a load range E tire, which i think is 8 or 10 ply, but I don't remember. Definitely a load range E or higher

Speed rating shouldn't be too big a deal, get the right load and should be fine. I doubt youll be doing over 90 mph with it lol
