Probably the one that came in it new, but I'm sure that's not what you are looking for. Be more specific about the car, engine/tranny and what it's going to do.

About the only one remotely close with a 5 on 5 1/2" bolt pattern is the early Ford Broncos,an 8" Mustang or Maverick rear would be a good fit but is 5 on 4 1/2" there is plenty out there to upgrade the front brakes in your '46 and convert to the 5 on 4 1/2" pattern which will give you a wider choice for wheels.
