My truck has 6 hole split rims wheels, I would like to put reguler steel wheels on it. Does anyone know if this is possible, if it is where could I find them

FWIW, the Studebaker 6-hole rims are unique to our '49-early '56 trucks. AFAIK, no other manufacturer used exactly the same wheel and I have never found a direct 16" replacement.

Do a search here and over on the truck forum for lots of previous threads on the subject.

thnx, jack vines

Probably depends on how bad you want to change. Folks like Stockton Wheel in California will put your centers into newer wheels if that is the only solution. It is probably not cheap but will solve your problem.
