1952 series 62 replacement wheels
« on: December 07, 2021, 10:32:15 PM »
I know they are 15" and 5x5 lug pattern, but what "late model"  wheels will fit this?  I can't find what the original wheel's offset is.  I want a second set for different tires.

You are looking for a second set, so, assuming you have the original wheels, it is easy enough to measure them ---

Note when reading at this link that there is a difference between "offset" and "backspace" --- see the last sentence at the link.

Sorry about the super long link, don't know how to make it more lines to shorten it, but click on it anywhere to go to the link's site.

It would be nice to find a chart that lists all applications, including width, off-set and back spacing.

With so many listings, the only sure way to get wheels to fit is by trial and error.

The only cross-referencing lists might be with the aftermarket people, but always in the fine print will be
words like "final fit will be up to the owner"   Or "No responsibility taken for non-fitting wheels"

Are the 52 cad wheels hub centric or lug centric?

And if hub centric, what is the bore size on original wheels?
