      I sandblasted and powder-coated my wheels and lock rings before mounting new tires. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub....-photos-part-1

        Great, glad to hear you got'er done!

        Can you please tell us What Brand and Size your new Tires are?
        Did you take Jack V's advice and buy 215X85R16 Radials and do the sidewalls of the Duals clear each other?
