    quote:Would the full wheel covers from '62 fit those wheels?

    Would the stock Stude lug nuts work properly with those Chrysler wheels?

    Thanks, as always!

    The 62 full wheel covers should fit fine and I think the lug nuts will be fine. I think there is a problem with Ford rims that the holes are a little bigger.

    I decided to buy 6" wheels from Coker Tire ($45.00 each) when I was buying my tires from them at Carlisle. Since I have a 2002 GMC Sonoma rear in my 52, I wanted a rim that would fit on both the front and back. These rims have dual bolt paterns 4 1/2" and 4 3/4". The Studebaker is 4 1/2" and the GMC is 4 3/4". I have tried them on the car and they work. They came primed and I painted them red.

        How much did you have to pay for those tires... I want a set for my Lark, Its 59 I can go either way and still be correct but I like the wide whites.

                The tires are 205/75R - 15 B.F. Goodrich Silvertown radials from Coker Tire. They were $179.00 each.

                Randy, Studebaker used the wide whites through 1962, so they would be right for your 59 Lark.

                Here is the URL:

                Here is a comparison between the Coker 205/75 and the 6.70 x 15 bias ply tires, on stock Studebaker rims, on my 64 Daytona.
