Hi Again, Leonard Shepard sent me a photo of a Stude with a hubcap with a spinner on it . There are a set of hubcaps on E-Bay just like them,less the spinner, He says they are 58 caps. are they 14 inch? and will they fit the Hawk? Also does anyone know where I can get spinners like those in Leonards photo to me. Thanks again, Frank

The 58 Studebaker and Packard wheel covers were 14". The Packard wheel cover is similar to the Studebaker.

This spinners I posted came from J.C. Whitney many years ago, but I have seen similar spinners from other sources.

Summit has some. Here is the link.

If you go this route, I kind of like this spinnner.

They are pretty cheap! If you could find one that resembles the one on our trunk, that would be so cool. How would a two spoke spinner work?

Studebaker actually offered an accessory spinner (AC2497). It was a two-bar rather than the three bar mentioned above. It was listed for all '54s. It fastened to the center of the '53-'55 wheel cover or hubcap.
