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.

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.
