Answering my own question....checked tire rack and a 235/75R16 is as close as I can get.

Problem is the 2357516 is not available in a ten ply tire.
I never recommend installng a lighter tire on a truck or van that calls for a heavy tire.
You may have to go to a LT22575R16 Load Range E
It has an O.D. of 29.3--a little smaller but much closer to the original size (29.80) and still be available in a ten ply tire.

You said the 18's will fit.  18" are easy to get.  Why not look at a lower profile 18. 
 
Or you could find a set of 17's off a newer 2500/3500.

Looks like a good family hauler.
 
I'm curious about that extra panel & window between the front and rear doors on the pass side.  I've noticed some of the older vans were that way, but don't think I've seen it on any of the newer ones.
