    who makes custom wheels for a 1946 champion 4 bolt pattern 15 in

  • #2
    If they're the same as the 47-50 Champion wheels....NO ONE!!!

    People have claimed over the years that some newer OEM wheels interchange. (Vega, Ford Fairmont, etc.) But I have not found this to be true. I checked an older Hollanders Interchange manual and found ONE with a matching bolt pattern: Crosley! Too bad they're only 12" wheels. 'Course if you like your ride low....[)][)][)]

          If you are going to put Custom Wheels on it, then you should not being oppsed to updateing the front brakes to discs and the rear end to a later stude or ford 8".
          This would give you 5 on 4 1/2" all the way around. Then you could run any custom wheel you choose.[}]

            A little further info:

            I did some more consulting of our library's various Hollanders Interchange manuals.

            There is an interchange with a "modern" wheel. The wheels used on Vegas, Monza, Astre, Sunbird, etc., up through 1980 will fit. BAD NEWS: They are 13" x5 and 13x6.[B)] Well, actually don't know that they'll [u]fit</u>, just that the bolt pattern is the same. They offered a lot of different factory cast wheels for these models over the years, so you could end up with some "customs." Actually when I was in High School a girl drove a yellow Vega with the common aftermarket slot-mag wheels, so at one time someone did make some in this bolt pattern.

            Lark Parker inquired if the 47-50 Champion wheels were the same as the 39-42(46) Champion wheels. Same bolt pattern. But AKAIK the 39-46 were 16x4 and the 47-50 were 15x5. He likes the idea of the 15" on his car 'cause the tires are cheaper. (Would like to see some more pictures of that car, Dale.)

            And those Crosley wheels? 12x2.5![)] I think I have some wheelbarrow tires that size!

                  I have seen an older 4-lug Stude on Ebay with Vega wheels mounted on it for rollers.
