Probably 215/75-15 at the very least. More possibly 225/75-15 or 235/75-15. Any one of those sizes will work ok. My preferance/bias would be for the 235/75-15 for the extra weight capacity and a slightly fuller look in the wheelhouse.
1 "76" F150 RC, LB, 2WD, 300, NP435, 9" open 3.00, special order 2-76/Delivered 4-76. Still "new".

1 "73-79" F150 RC/SS/SB/4WD, "84"-300, T18, NP205, 9" open 3.50, Dana 44 3.50 open, Offy DP, Holley 470, EFI + single 2.5" exhaust. Gathered from 15+ donor/parts trucks. "Fubar". Runs good, safe, still needs details/project continues.

An E100 would have had as original equipment 205/75-15 SL. E150s got 235/75-15s OR G78 x 15B in the Pre-Metric nomenclature.

235/75-15 XL would be an improvement in load carrying capacity. It's both wider and taller.

The smaller sizes are very hard to find (if even available, I haven't checked in a while) in higher load capacities nowadays and even the 235 XLs are diminishing in the market.

An E100's carrying capacity will not match that of the E150 even with the larger tires due to its smaller brakes, having 5 x 4.5" wheel bolt pattern vs 5x 5.5", etc. Two different vehicles altogether.
