Default 740 steelies on 145

I keep trying to find pictures/data of stock 740 15" steel rimpz mounted on 140's but am coming up empty-handed. It's my understanding that stock 72 wheels are 15x5 and most 740 steelies are 15x6. What tire size would I want to run that would retain the correct rolling diameter? Is the offset good/appropriate?

Does anybody have any pictures?

205 65 15 or 185 70 15 are the closest rolling diameters.
