    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.

    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.

    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.

    I am thinking about checking out some local salvage yards for the 5 1/2" Chrysler wheels for use with P205 tires on my '62 Cruiser.

    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!

    Leonard: your very best bet, would be these that John K recommends OR what I use: the '76-'78 Chrysler Cordoba (possibly other Mopars like the Dodge Daytona I think they called it) that have the number stamped in the rim next to the valve stem "0057" these are for P215 X 75R15 or P225 X 70R15's and are perfect for Studes. being 5 1/2 In. wide X 15. They also have the wheelcover stop humps at the valve stems. They would work good with the '51-'52 full covers! [^]

    D100 and D150 Dodge pickups built from '72 to '80 (if not longer) came from the factory with either 5 1/2" or 6 1'2" X15 wheels measured inside bead to bead. Trucks equiped with G78 and H78 tires used the 5 1/2" and those with L78 used the 6 1/2". I use the 5 1/2" on my Studes.
