The original rims for my 64 type 1 has the J profile and works ok with radial tires, just FYI. While the offset was different from type 1 to type 3, and also the width, I cant imagine that the profile was any different.
Yes, I believe ALL OE type 3 wheels were 4-1/2" x 15". Early wheels didn't have the safety hump which made them a 4-1/2j x 15. I think this change came in mid-
66, after the switch to 4 lug wheels, so that means that there are no OE 5 lug wheels out there which have the safety humps and are therefore appropriate with radial tires.
