    Who knows what year did Studebaker go from 4 hole rims to 5 hole rims and what year was the only 5 hole 14" rim used ??

    All wheels were 5-lug in 1951 to the end of production. 14" wheels were used only on 1958 V8 cars, on which 15" wheels were a regular production option. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      Did any Studebakers other than the pre 1951 Champions use 4 bolt wheels?

        The 1951 Champions had the SAME wheels as Commanders as Bob P. said. As far as I know only '47-'50 CHAMPIONS used the 4 Lug Wheels.

        It is likely that '39-'46 Champions also did, but what happened on pre-War Cars I know nothing about, and so few of the members here have them, I don't think it matters.

          Pre-war 39-46 champions had 16" wheels I believe

            Was there ever an article or pictures in any publication regarding the different wheel rims used by Studebaker?

              I can think of one exception to this. 14 inch wheels/tires were an extra cost option on six cylinder Silver Hawks.
