  • Wheel jazz

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to "Jazz" up the look of the wheels on my 58 Packard Hawk? Yhe hub caps look so plain-- I was thinking of wire wheel caps or some ideas can any one help? Thanks, frank/ Maine Hawk[img][/img]

    This will be highly subjective, and a very personal matter of taste.

    Don't cut or make any permanent alterations to your car, and save the original parts... beyond that, experiment, and enjoy!!

        Personally I think aftermarket wheels are the way to go. However, Studebaker "dog dishes" will fit on the 14" wheels if you want to experiment with trim rings and paint etc.

            I wouldn't recommend this but I put three bar spinners on the 58 Silver Hawk wheel covers that we used to own.

            I have also seen a 58 Packard Hawk with the wire wheel covers that were available on 55-57 Studebakers, but you have to use 15" rims.

                Great to hear from you all!! After my first post back from a while away I saw no replys, Was wondering if I was to far North for communication-- Only kidding!! Gee I like the look leonard Shepard sent me. I bet it would look great and match nicely with a set of Regal Mirrors Thanks, I guess I would have to find another set of Packard Hawk hubcaps to do this to? Please let me know of any other ideas, Thanks,Frank

                    Frank, I think the more common 14" '58 Studebaker wheel cover would work fine and I think that is what Leonard used! You also could put a silver and black Stude. "S" sticker in the center!

                        Frank,
                        Check out how my Hawk looks with the 55 Speedster spokes and caps.

                        Like Leonard said, you will have to go up to the 15" wheels. If you want additional pictures, let me know.

                            Carey, beautiful car! Even though it wasn't an option on P-Hawks, that car just looks so 'right' with those wire wheel covers.[^] Yet another high end S-P prodect has just been added to my "will own someday" wish list...
