Dave, you can see the casting mark in the photo but not clear enough to read.
On the outside face two holes round from the valve.
Slightly raised rectangular mark with raised digits 15 x 6.5.

Following Peter's advice I can confirm that the wheels are 15 x 6.5 fronts and 15 x 8.5 rears if anybody is interested.

Just a word of caution that it’s worth physically measuring these between the rim inner flanges, as some US wheels were made 1” wider but using the original front casting, thereby retaining the old 6.5 and 8.5 marking.
