    Oops, sorry. I think PlainBrownR2 is looking for another car. Too bad it's too far away. It looks very nice. I wonder what color it is?

    All right, all ye thread pirates... I didn't mean for this to turn into a Rally style wheel thread, somebody needs to BUY this car, I would but I already have "too many", according to my DW.......

    Right, John. As I said, no nubs on the outside of the center hump; inside only. The illustrated wheel does have inside nubs; other GM wheels I've seen have an entire ring inside the center hump.

    The principle is similar: With this arrangement, the hub cap must compress a little to get within the inside nubs, as opposed to the alternate arrangement, when the cap has to stretch a little to get over the outside nubs. BP

    You know, that looks like a Lazy "S" vinyl logo could be easily applied in the center ring...

    Note there are no "nubs" around the outside of this Chevy Rally Wheel's center section, on which the center cap or dog-dish hub cap could be snapped. The center cap must have its own nubs to snap in the groove inside this wheel's center section, not nubs around the outside of the center section: BP

    I guess folks missed the super cool '65 Cruiser at the South Bend IM that had these very same wheels? I wasn't even there and I managed to see it!!!

    Wish that Avanti had more pictures included.

    Here is an Avanti PayBay Ad that looks like it has exactly what we are talking about:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...SS:MOTORS:1123


    However it is not a good ad to promote a fairly nice Car. Due to the "story" it must be a four speed, even though it does not say "Manual Trans." or "Four Speed".

    No Pics of the (maybe) "Leather" Interior either.

    HOWEVER, I do not see any "humps" on each side of the valve stem to prevent them from spinning, if you know a really good welder, maybe they could add some. That could be very tricky though.
    Are you talking about the 64-65 wheel covers that like to walk? I used the chromed metal valve stems that bolt on in my stock stude wheels. Maybe that would be ok on those rally wheels .

    Interesting, John; I was not aware of those in a dual bolt pattern. Thanks for the information.

    It looks like the center caps are retained differently from Studebaker dog-dish caps; that is, they are retained by the Chevy external (to the hub of the cap) "lugs," rather than the external "nubs" of most other stamped wheels.

    'Looks like a good alternative, for sure, as long as one does not want to use Studebaker-specific dog-dish hub caps. Good find. BP

    Places like summit racing have been selling rally wheels with different bolt patterns, widths, and center caps without the bowtie on it for a while.
    Here's an example with a dual bolt pattern. Only $53.96 each? Hmmm, maybe this is our answer to cheap replacement wheels. They sell ones that are fully chromed too.

    Center cap for $11.41

    The only things that make a Chevy Rally Wheel a Rally Wheel is the trim rings and center cap. The rim itself doesn't really matter outside of being painted the appropriate color and width.

    Those look like Chevrolet Rally Wheels, which would be 4 3/4" bolt pattern, not Studebaker 4 1/2."

    Any report of the chassis or major driveline components having been changed? BP
