I just purchased this car. It has been sitting in a field since 1974. The wheels are rusted out. Can anyone tell me what replacement wheels I can use? The studs are 2-3/4" apart...

That is a nice body style, but to get you off on the correct start, it is a Starlight.

For what its worth, I've found that 1/2 ton International Harvester pickups from the 1950's also have the same bolt pattern.
