I replaced my 30 yr old Cooper tires on my 1954 Chevy 3100, and my local tire shop did not have such a good time. - First they did not think they had any valve stems that would work, but as it ended up they did, and they worked just fine - Then they had a heck of a time spin balancing them. but they got it done (to a point) - Then while putting wheels on, they were torqueing the wheels down, they felt the lug nuts were going through the wheel, so they replaced them with bigger once at no charge. - They are recommending that I replace the wheel studs, as they did not feel they were safe.
So I need to take the wheel off, and look at the studs, and find a shop that can replace them all Lastly, I love my wheels, but wonder if I should be looking to get a new set, that look like mine.
I have attached a picture
Any know where I can get wheels that look like this?
they look like the typical spring hubcap vintage wheels used for tons of years. mine are 6 lug 16's on my truck. if buying just be aware there are several widths. my truck came with 3 different ones so I'm looking too. nice trim rings and hubcaps!
Larry All you need in life is TIME, PATIENCE and MONEY. If you are missing one component, you'll need an abundance of the others two.
If your studs withstood the torque they use now days your studs are fine. Wheel stud holes do waller out some over the years but I've never had any problem and you say they used lugnuts with a little bigger heads....you should be good to good and probably safer than some of the spacers and offsets that are on the road!! ...keep it under a 100mph and you should be good....... ..just my .02
