If memory serves, it would be a 5.00 / 5.50 X 15

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I put 6.50 x 16 on my '51 M, but it has a wide front. I think 6.00 x 16 would be right for a narrow front.

I've seen both the 5.50 and the 6.00. Either would work fine. The 5.50 sidewall will look very straight on the rim. The 6.00 will bulge a little.

If you plan to do a lot of plowing with it put the 5.50 on the right and 6.0 on the left, that way your arm doesn't get so tired fightiing the steering whell.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
