1967 F250 tire recommendation

Hello,

I have a '67 F-250 Ranger Camper Special with 16' wheels, can someone please recommend the correct tire size?

Thank you!

235/85/16 is what looks best to me and probably closest to original.

265/75R16 is a little bigger and thicker if you want the big tire look.

I had no idea it was possible to put a 15 inch tire on a 16 inch wheel? And why on earth would you want to do that? 255/70/15 is only 29 inches tall compared to the 235/85/16 which is 31.7 tall.
