6" wide or smaller steel wheels search

I am heading out to the old boneyard this weekend, and am on a hunt, to which I was hoping I might be able to get some help.

What vehicle has 6" wide or smaller 15" steel rims, that have 5 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern? Obviously either Ford or Chrysler vehicles, but I am seeking steel wheels that do not have 80million holes in them like most vehicle's 90's and newer.

Thanks guy!

Would late 40's Mopar wheels work? Or would the extra holes for the guide pin be a problem? 1948 Plymouth wheels are 4 1/2" in width.

50's Ford/Mopar/Rambler wheels would work... I think you can buy new wheels direct from Martin Wheel..they manufacture trailer wheels.
