Anyone know what the stock tire size is for a 1980 2wd LUV.

If the sticker on your door jam is still there (and readable) it is on there.
My Clymer manual says E78-14B.

If I remember correctly that converts over to about a P205 x 75-14.

What about the rim size. Is there an offset. I know its 14 inches but there different depths?

I have that size/rim on my truck. When I first got it it came really close to fender. Not what you want for off road or rough terrain.
You can raise the torsion bars which helps some. Though I ended up putting on a body lift kit for more clearance.
