    I have the same set in decent condition. $25.00 plus shipping for all four if you want them. You can buy the decal kit on EBAY and dress them up and they will look great.

      those are the ones that I think of whenever anyone says "1956 Studebaker wheel cover." I believe the "Speedster" wire wheels were also an option, not sure if the style with the radial flutes were available in '56 or not but they definitely were used in '57.

      this is an example of what I think of as a '57 wheel cover

        The eBay link is a nice set of '56 full covers. The SI p/n (and link in Nate's post) were optional for '56s, '57s, and '58s with 15 inch wheels. A standard '57 full cover is similar to the '56 cover, but looks like this~



        Did I confuse anyone [?] [?] [?]

          I understood, I have 3 of those but only 1 is in good condition and the ones on ebay look pretty clean. Am also waiting for pics from studemichael with the ones he is selling. His pretty is pretty good if they are decent.

              That set appears nearly NOS, and I don't blame the bidder that hit the BIN.

                '63 Lark if I'm not mistaken, but you can strip them and repaint for any number of years 61 (I think?) up.

                hey, I just got a really weird idea. Remember those "sticker kits" for refinishing hubcaps? I have a whole mess of reflective tape in red and white (for making my bike more visible at night) how 'bout doing, say, the "S" in a '62 Lark hubcap in reflective red instead of just plain old red...? too much? too cheezy?

                    The "Speedster" style were for 1953 to mid-1956 model years. The imitation spoke ("fluted") are for mid-1956 and 1957 (also 1958 with 15 inch wheel option). The spoke style, without the gold center, were used again on Larks.
