    I believe so, I just know the Chrysler/Ford Lug Nuts are 1/2" X 20 TPI and 13/16" Wrench Size, vs Studebaker 3/4" Wrench Size.

    I hope the Nuts don't come with Ugly BLACK Wheels!

      Stock Studebaker and Ford 1/2”-20 lug nuts both have a 60 degree seat.

          i see why they did it, 45 can go on a 60, but not the other way around, so that wheel can use 45 ford lug nuts and 60 chrysler and stude nuts

            Factory lug nuts for Studebaker ,Ford, Chrysler and GM cars are all 60 degree. Some trucks and specialty wheels use 45 degree nuts. Ford cars use a 13/16" hex while Studebaker, Chrysler and GM use a 3/4" hex. GM studs are typically 7/16" however, while Sudebaker, Ford and Chrysler are 1/2". That is, before the US car makers started mixing a bunch of metrical crap in; after that all bets are off!

              IMO, seven inches is too wide for a Lark.
