Looking at gathering parts for the 77 PK 1614 resto/mod.  It's got what appears to be original Goodyear tires front/rear.  But the rears are 7.50-16.

 

Wondering what everyone is running?  I've looked at the Carlisle rears (8.00-16 R1), and the Deestone D401 F2 3 rib front.  I want to stay as close to OEM as possible.  However, if I could slap a set of 9.50-16 on the stock rims, I wouldn't be adverse to going that route.  Turf tires would also be a possibility, but can't seem to find any for the OEM rims.

Hi Hack the 8.00x16's will work and the Deestone fronts are what is needed, I think turfs can be found but it may take some searching if I wanted to go with a turf tire I just get a set of good used 16" turk tires

How wide is the stock rear rim?  

 

If I decide on going to a non-AG or 'turf' tires, I may just swap to a 15" rim and run some sort of light truck/off-road tire.  But I'd really like to keep the OEM wheels. 

 

I've got a set of 11.50x32-15 Super Swamper TSL/SX on my 76 CJ5:

They are a bit 'short' of 32", closer to 31".  But they have very heavy sidewalls.  I can run them down to single digit pressure without much noticeable sag.  They are also offered in 33's, 34's (9.00-15), and much larger sizes.  I'm going to check right now and see if they are available in 16", but they really need a rim size of 8" or larger.

 

The 'pizza cutter', 34x9.00-16 requires a rim width of 7": https://www.intercotire.com/tire/126

 

This offering looks interesting: https://www.intercotire.com/tire/136

I've also been hunting tires for my Jim Dandy.  Based on the specs for the original turf tires, it seems like modern 215/85/16 tires are close in dimension and would probably fit.

You guys need to stop worrying about "recommended" rim width when mounting "Highway Tires" on to a tractor that MAY achieve  a whopping 5 mph.

I don't think you will see resulting sidewall roll in hi-speed turns & such other problems related to recommended rim width.

If it's a 16" tire going on a 16" rim ... & you like the looks of it ..... Go with it !

Sheeesh.

Looks like these Jeep repop tires may be a non-ag option too:
