    I have seen alot of photos of 90016s on the 1/2 ton dodges. To bad you are not closer, I have big tires (buckshot) on my WC1, the old owner put them on new rims from Vintage power wagon, then mounted them on the truck. I bought it from him about that time. There is about 4 miles on the tires. I would let you talk me out of them.

    Hi
    the 750X16s are the stock size.
    the 90x16s will fit the truck fine, You just do not want to mount them on original 1/2 ton wheels as they have very small lock beads.
    You can use either M37/powerwgon wheels or WWII Dodge combat rims.

    Buckshots are among the best of tires in my opinion, I used to have a set. yeah I used to be stationed in nc its only about a 7 hr drive from here.
