If you have a boneyard near you with some 5000/7000 size Fords you could buy the front rims used. 16", same hole size and bolt pattern as your 901 but much wider.
These were on a 4000 that I bought. I sold them.

I feel a bit silly that I didn't consider boneyards, being such a vet of them and all, and there *is* one near the cabin.
Going to stop there soon for sure.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

take your measurements carefully at the scrapyard.

16" wheels are so common, there are lots of variations.

I have a 850 with 6.5x16, lots of clearance on the right, left rubs.

a casual glance says both wheels are the same,

but a tape shows a slight difference in offset.

like said, truck tires are best. I've had multi-ribs with their

'round' tread profile and they steer very easily, but

are useless in snow or clay mud.

Multi-ribs also have a bigger sidewall bulge at the same pressure and rim width.
