    I have had the same experience with my C bodied 1955 John. Using stock Studebaker rims too, no less!

    I have 205's on my Hawk and find them amazing for all aspects of touring from interstate to backroad.

      I put 205X75-R15's on my stock 9G wheels and haven't had any problems at all (I've got the small hubcaps). Parking hasn't been a problem for me and I can now drive the car instead of herding it.

        Knock on wood, but I have the full caps, and never lost one! But, I do inflate to 35 PSI as most radial tire makers recommend these days. The '55 rims are a heavier gauge than the '66 Cruiser, and still problems on it either with full caps.

          Am running 215-75-r15 on my 1955 speedster with good results. I feel it makes the car look better with a little larger tires.
