Thanks in advance for your help
Also should mention you'll need wheel spacers for the 12.50's if you have a narrow track axle (which you probably have wide-track in '83). Mine were rubbing on the leaf springs without spacers, and I have a high offset 15x10 rim. check the offset of your rim at the very least.

If you can't find the code, jack the rear end up, put a chalk mark on one of the tires, turn the tire 360 degrees and count how many times the driveshaft turns.

That will get you close.
