  • American Racing Torque Thrust wheels on 62 Daytona

    all of my life I have wanted a Studebaker with torque thrust wheels on it. I have a 62 Daytona but I can't find a wheel that will fit. Any ideas on how to do that?

    Take the car to a wheel dealer and let them fit the wheels you want to the car. They will have several widths and offsets available. You're not the first to do this, so just jump right in. That's a great wheel choice, in my opinion. Good luck and take some pictures to post.

      I have 15x6s on my 64 and have not had any issues.

        just look for Mustang 5 X 4.5" and/or 114.3 mm (bolt circle) for starters. Then pay attention to back spacing and rim width. If you get above 6" rim width then pay attention to rim to front suspension clearance. The 8" wide rims on my Avanti required an 1/8" spacer.

        An yes, they do look good Studebakers.

            I ran TQs on my Coupe for years. Also used Cragar 5 spokes too. Never had issues with any of them.

                      You can fit a 15X7 if it has 4" - 4 1/4" backspace. I run either a 205/70R15 or a 205/75R15 on the front and 215/70R15 on the rear. No clearance issues. Many wheels today including TQ's have the proper backspace for a Studebaker. 3 3/4" will not work real good.
