How about these.
Cheviot Hustlers 13x6 (from the 70's).
The first pic is of my 75 Galant wagon with a set that I've had since 1994. And the second pic is the start of my latest project, a 77 Galant Sedan with another set I just picked up a couple of weeks ago.

Mine is a 4 speed, but I'm hoping to get a 5 speed for it. I have a spare 5 speed, but it needs to be repaired.
Here's a pic of some other wheels. I'm not sure of what style they are but they are made by ROH. They are 15x7's, they don't seem to rub anywhere, the guards aren't lipped and the car is quite low as you can see. I'm currently stripping this car in my garage. It is fitted with a bridgeported 13B and a 9 inch diff. It's a real shame to dismantle this car but unfortunately it's rusted beyond any kind feasible repairable state.

They are hard to get in Australia too. I found one for my wagon, and I know the location of another as well. I'm waiting for it for it to be delivered so I can put it in the GD I'm currently restoring.
The Philippines is another place to look for one. Although, I believe they are scarce there too.

this one runs R16s, no problem, 6.5 inch front, 7 inch rear, both with at least 2 inches of clearance from any surface it would rub on.
just use a tire with same or closest to the stock tire diameter so it wouldnt affect the performance of the car(for me, you can go at least smaller but not bigger than the stock). :)
