Default Tire & Wheel Conversion Size

Hi folks:

Just getting back after health issues.

Looking to source steel wheels for my 1961 T-Bird Convertible.

Shop Manual indicates: 8.00 x 14-4 size tires.

I measured the original hub caps and they are 14" so, I just want to validate the OEM wheels were 14". What's the proper width of the wheel?

I will check with Coker for closest tire size, but does anyone else have any suggestions for getting original-looking tires and what their experiences have been?
