    Standard Studebaker 5 on 4.5. I know all about being scratch less.

    Last chance for possible free delivery to Reedsville. BTW, chrome lug nuts are included.

    The previous owner of the '64 Avanti I bought last year had put American Racing Torque Thrust wheels and new tires on the car. I was torn between keeping them or making it look more original. Two things swayed me to do the latter. First, the Torque Thrusts and blackwall tires made it look too modern. Second, the 225x60x16 tires were about one inch shorter in height than the original size tires which made the car sit too low and it made the speedometer read high which in turn made highway driving uncomfortable with the high revs necessary to maintain normal speeds with the Powershift and 3.54 rear.
    So, I want to sell the set of four wheels and the four nearly new radial tires on them. They did fit on the Avanti over Turner brakes with no problems even though they are 16 x 7 wheels. I even tried one on the back of the '53 I was prepping to sell and it fit OK on that. I can't speak for the front though as I didn't try them there. Both the wheels and tires are just over two years old and have been driven less than 1,000 miles. The tires (from the sidewall) are KENETICA KENDA RADIALs, size 225x60x16 (I have never heard of them- know nothing about them). The date code on the tires is 1608. Tread wear rating is 360, Traction is A and temperature is B. The wheels are as new, are balanced with adhesive weight on the inside of the rims.
    I am firm on a price of $600 for the set. New Torque Thrusts alone cost well over that. They could be picked up at my place about 70 miles from DC or Baltimore or I can deliver to Reedsville and maybe York.
    The thumbnails below show the wheel and tire, how they looked on the Avanti and how it looks now with original appearing wheels and tires.
