    The (3) 5" X 15" with Hub Cap Clip Holes are "Budd", 1951 to 1957 Studebaker all Models. They can fit '51 to '57 Stude. Hub Caps.

    When these nice wider wheels are put on a '63-'66 with stock Bendix/Dunlop Disc. Brakes, the short Back Set causes them to TOTALLY Lock up after a 1/4 Turn! They hit the Caliper and Crossover Brake Lines

    The #2 Pic White inside Wheel, appears to be a Kelsey Hayes 15 X 4 1/2", '63-'66 Disc Brake Wheel.
    If you re-measure this Wheel and find it actually IS 5 Inches INSIDE, it's a Disc Brake Avanti Wheel!

    If you measure your width correctly Inside where the Tire mounts, you will get the correct size. OR just Read the Size Stamped inside the Wheel near the Valve Stem!

    I can't tell which Pics refer to which of your "details" info.
    So you have 5 wheels from your '60 Lark, it's interesting that NONE are 1960.
    It's obvious that the F/O was going for 5 Inches Wide!

    Here is a '54 Commander Land Cruiser, with those '51-'57 Wheels and Hub Caps.

      Rich the walking stude encyclopedia to the rescue..... you are probably a speaker at the annual south bend event

      there are only 4 wheels, i don't know which corner any of them came off of, the tires were all the same

      2 are 15x5 with 4.5 BS the other 2 are 15x4.5 3.5 BS

      no wonder the car look weird with the skinny tires buried deep into the wheel wells

      knowing myself, at some point i would have rotated them and bam! mismatch,

      glad i replaced them with known dimensions

      feel sorry for those that mount tires on them to find out they can drive 1 inch...nightmare


      i did measure more than once the 4.5 wides are 4.5"

      didn't know about the size stamped, they have thick paint on them...
