On the face it does look like 8.00 x 16 but in your lower picture of the other side it looks like 6.00 x 16 which is probably correct. The tire is too small to be 8.00 by 16. it looks like the hole pattern is 5 on 5 1/2,maybe it's just a '35 Ford wheel.

Modern tires aren't cheap for those wheels in this part of the world (USA). Narrow 16s were always expensive here, but no longer produced by anyone except the antique suppliers. That wheel swap was popular in the USA during WW2, as tires were almost impossible to get but 600-16 tires for those wheels were easier to get than Model A tires. I have heard the rumors of narrow 16s showing up cheaply on Craigslist or similar sites in NZ and AUS, having been used on Toyota Hilux(?) or something similar in those countries. Color me green, with envy.
