    I have a set of 4 matching rims removed from a 66 Daytona with Stude disc brakes.They are notvthe original Stude wheels. Located in Michigan. I believe they are 6" width. Will check if interested. $150.00 for set. You would have to p/u. Message me if interested.

    I see from above that I could use wheels from an LTD.... I am putting turner brakes on a 62 GT Hawk. My question is what year LTD would have the most suitable wheels. I would like to put my original (large) hub caps back on.

    Call Jim Turner, he is a wealth of information on my 64 Hawk he told be the right spacer to use and even gave me part numbers. Best mod I ever did was switching to disc brakes.

    I believe that Avanti wheels were 5" and Lark type were 4 1/2". Some later Lark types got the left over Avanti wheels too.

    Weren't the Avanti rims 5.5" width? Many years ago I bought a set of four wheels listed by Newman & Altman for the late production Canadian disc brake cars, put 'em away and forgot them. Rediscovered the wheels shortly after buying the '63 Avanti. Each wheel had an adhesive label with part#. Under each label was another label with the earlier Avanti part#. Exactly the same part, renumbered.

The lug studs on the kits rotor are longer than the original, and should work with the spacer. I think the spacer would be fine, however to err on the side of caution I did not use my stock wheels. I elected to go with the Crown Vic wheels to eliminate concerns over the radial vs. bias wheel debate and not need a spacer.
    Agree, much better to just get wheels that will clear. Also, with aluminum spacers the lug nuts will loosen up, every few thousand miles. So it using spacers, be sure to use steel, which is a little harder to find.

    It's been discussed on several posts on the forum that the Ford lug nuts will work OK with Studebaker wheels, as the bevel is the same, just larger diameter. Studebaker lugs will not work with Ford wheels due to the larger lug hole in the wheels.

    Will the stock wheels fit over the hub , because all disc brake wheels have a larger center hole ,this is what I am trying to find out

    Your wheels are likely 5x15 and they will be OK with a 205 75 R15. or a 6.70x15 or 7.10x15. If you use your original wheels use Ford lug nuts- they are bigger beefier and safer. Have wheels spun before cleaning painting and mounting tires; I find that a lot of them are bent.

    If you want to keep your original rear wheels, you might just locate Studebaker disc brake wheels for the front. They came in 4 1/2 and 5 inch width.
    If you don't mind changing all 4 wheels, Ford Crown Victoria and Ranger wheels would be a good choice, but small hubcaps would not be usable.
