  • Wheels / Tires: Stock wheel specs for 1962

    I did a search, but didn't come up with what I was looking for.
    What are the specs for the stock wheels on a 62 Lark?
    Looking for all the specs including back spacing.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Many are available so I never worried about the Backspacing and off-set, I just bolt some on.

    Of course they are going to be the "Standard" Ford, Mercury, Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, AMC and Studebaker 5 on 4 1/2 Inch bolt Pattern 15 Inch Wheels.

    There are many, Many posts here about the backspace to use for Custom Wheels, but apparently you want to know what your wheels SHOULD be or are?

      The car I'm working on is in my head.
      I get an idea and like to gather info for what I want to do.
      At this point I'm Studebakerless.
      So I just need the back spacing and width I a stock 62 wheel to "build it on paper"

        It's 4 1/2" wide, but I don't know the backspacing. I'd guess 2 1/2.

          Found this, but don't know how accurate it is.
