I don't recall if your Westy is a walk thru or bench? My 65 bench stores
the spare behind the bench. I got a set 195/65/14's, including 5th for
spare. The spare doesn't fit the storage area. (maybe i'm missing an
adjustment?) Save an old "skinny" tire for spare.

I have never had the correct tires on my 67 Westie, instead I’ve had
standard car tires.
I have 15” American Eagle five spoke wide five aluminum wheels.
Reading on The Samba it seams the most common recommendation is 205 75 R15
with a C load rating. (lite truck tire)
This seems to be a difficult tire to find.
I happen to be at an NTB store and asked the salesman if they carry
anything in this size. Strangely enough he says yes,
I have a PowerKing Towmax STRII and I have four in stock. My reply, that’s
a trailer tire, you can put that on a vehicle? He then goes on to
explain that this is a great tire for a vehicle that isn't driven very
often because they don’t get flat spots from sitting long periods of time.
Question to the forum,
Has anyone heard of doing this?
If you have 15” wheels on a Split bus, what tires are you using?
