    Bill: The wheel bolt pattern on a 1965 Commander is NOT the same as a Chevrolet of any vintage. Older, 1960s-1970s era (non-metric) Rear-Wheel-Drive Ford and Chrysler products are just fine.

    Your car does not have left-hand threads on any wheel studs.

    If you get a Ford wheel, you must use 13/16" lug nuts, not the 3/4" found on your car presently. They are the same thread as a Ford, but the Ford nuts are larger outside because Ford wheel lug nut holes are larger diameter than Studebaker's. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
