I'll second that the modern hub piloted wheels are not a replacement for your stud piloted wheels.
Even if the bolt pattern is similar the wheel won't be supported to run true or carry the load as intended.

Wow!, I'd love to have a set of those 10.00x20, U.S. Royal gangster whitewalls, on my COE, but $1300ea., is a bit much.

Thanks guys, looks like I'll be on the hunt for some stud piloted wheels. Plus I still need to go by the tire shop and see if they'll work on these original Budds.
