I see that you are in Kuwait so that knocks out some of the easy things like hitting swap meets or wrecking yards.

According to the information on the GM Herritage center site https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/doc...olet-Truck.pdf the 58 Burb ran 6,70-15 tires as original equipment.
Scrolling down it does appear that 6.50 16 tires were offered if you go to page T76

Someone who is better versed in stock wheels and sources will have to come up with a source though.

Best bet is to hope someone on here has a nice set that he/she will sell or knows of a set.

Shipping address in the states helps a ton in simplifying things for a seller. I'm thinking that older farmers who weren't impressed with "those new little 15 inch" wheels would have been the main buyers of 16 inch wheels back then.

Re: Stock rims, where can i buy? Original or repro

I'm using 16" trailer wheels on my truck with stainless hubcaps. The trailer wheels came with nubs that the caps snap over. To the average person they appear to be the original wheels.
