New wheels and tires

I am looking replacing my wheels and tires on a 1974 repu. Six lug 14" wheels appear hard to find with few choices. It looks as if a 205/65/15 tire would match the orginal tire diameter of 25.5" It seems from the other threads that Chevy, Mitsubishi, Isuzu and perhaps some Toyota may fit the lug pattern, but what about the offset? Does anyone know the orginal offset or what I should look for? I'll look for take offs or go to a junkyard to find the rims. Thanks.

15x7 with 3.75" backspace and 225/50/15 is what I have on the front. They do stick out a tad so 4" to 4.125" backspace and 205/55/15 would have less of the skateboard look.

American Racing and US Wheel make a lot of 6 x 139mm rims.
