1957 Pathfinder RV lug pattern?

Hello all. My father-in-law just purchased sight-unseen a 1957 Pathfinder RV last night. According to him, it still has the original split-rim wheels, and the tires need to be replaced. He's in Alabama, and the RV is in Minnesota. He wants to drive up with a set of replacement wheels and tires, since the seller says the tires should be replaced. Does anyone out there know what the lug nut pattern on the wheels is? The tires are 14" tires, so at least we know that.
TIA
Brian

Answering my own question, kind of, it looks like a common size for that time is 6x5.5 bolt pattern, 15" wheel with a 6" rim width. Can anyone confirm or deny?
I got that info here:
Wheels & Hubcaps

How many lug nuts? What is the spacing from the center of one lug nut to the center of the lug nut next to it? With that info you can figure it out easily.

There will be a whole lot more to moving a Rig of that Age then the wheels and tires! I would suggest taking along a Flatbed type of Trailer or renting a roll back tow truck to transport it home.

X-2 There will be way more things to fix than the tires, for sure, unless this thing has been under a roof in a heated garage and been fully restored already! Can't wait to see the pic's! Rail! P.S. Has he checked out the weather up there???

He got it today. It was a few hours west of St. Cloud, and he saw some black ice on the way there. He got it to a relative's house in SW Wisconsin, and I'm just as curious to hear the story when he gets it home. Details to follow.

When we went to the show Thursday snowing and Black Ice the whole way there and back about 40 Miles R/T
Well worth the white knuckles too go to a Sportsman/MH/RV/TT show.
Can't wait for the post of the trip home for him. Don't forget Pic's...
Thanks for Sharing,
Tim
