Wheel options for 1937 Buick

I would like to use traditional style wheels, hubcaps, and trim rings on my 1937 Buick Roadmaster. (See example picture).
I want to run radial tires that are either 205/70R16 or 205/75R15 because they will be compatible with my drive train.
I've found numerous Buick dog dish hubcaps that vary by year in size with inner diameters of 7.75, 7.875, 9.75, and 9.875.
1) Can anyone recommend a modern 15" or 16" wheel with a 5 x 5 bolt pattern that one of these hubcaps will fit?
Thanks

Thanks for the info.
I'm hoping to find OEM wheels that will work.
Does anyone know what model year GM began using tubeless tires?
Thanks

Let me revise my previous statement.

Stockton Wheel Company makes a lot of wheels to fit OEM applications; perhaps providing them with your requirements, they could give you a list of suitable OEM rims to fulfill your needs
