  • Beauty rings for 50 Champion

    Will the standard beauty rings you see at the FLAPS fit the original Champion wheel? Does anyone know of a specific part number or brand that will fit?

    Usually they do not fit, most have a larger, smooth inward tapered surface that does not fit the Multi "Rippled" Stude. Rim of the Wheel surface.
    Original type are out there, (Swapmeets, Yard Sales, Craigslist) even for '40'-50's "Other" Makes that may fit, but not New Production, made for something like a GM Pickup.

      If J.C. Whitney is still around, they might have some.

      There are some on eBay that might be shallow enough. I would avoid the plastic ones, though. A nice Studebaker deserves better than plastic beauty rings that will soon lose their beauty.
