    No; the white wall tires and the full wheel covers were SEPARATE options. You could have either one with or without the other! [:0]

    Were wide white walls sold as on option with the full rim hubcaps[?][?]
    Most people end up with P205X75R15 since the 195's are no longer made in most styles and brands of tires.

    The stock wheels were 5 in. wide & able to handle the 205 radials just fine, if their condition is not good, it will be difficult to find 5 or 5 1/2 in. wide 15 in. rims with 5 on 4 1/2 in. bolt pattern to fit the tires and car.

    With a few exceptions, No. And, unless you are looking for points in a car show, you don't want bias anyway. Radials are safer, more stable and more comfortable.

    Yes.
    quote:If not, can you run tubes in radial tires
    No.

    Here is the Coker Tire link to your size tires

    And here is their conversion chart

    All Studebakers came standard with blackwall tires. Whitewalls and full wheel covers were an option.

    51 Champ new tires - rims

    It it time to find some paws for the 51 and as we expect only to drive the car locally, we want to do so as inexpensively as possible. So here is my question. The car had 6.4X15 bias tires on it from the factory.

    What size would that be in a radial tire[?][?]

    Can you buy bias tires as cheap as modern radials[?][?]

    Will the riveted rims hold air using radials without tubes[?][?]

    If not, can you run tubes in radial tires[?][?]

    Did the G10 W3 come with black sidewall tires[?][?]

    Were wide white walls sold as on option with the full rim hubcaps[?][?]
