Packard

Packard Wire WheelThe Packard Motor Car Company built luxury automobiles from 1899 to 1958, and used wire wheels on many of its models. The Packard wire wheel, available from Roadster Wire Wheels are similar to those used in the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, and feature a well-made structure that is the top of the line, when it comes to wire wheel production.

Roadster Wire Wheels manufactures these wheels with a rolled steel rim, which is treated to a multi-layer chrome-plating process before being laced up to the model-specific hub. During the span of Packard production, the lug bolt pattern changed, so you can get Packard wires form Roadster with either a 5×4.5-inch or a 5×5-inch bolt circle. This means that Roadster’s version of the Packard wire wheel fits Packards from 1938 to 1956. The wheels are available in 15×6, 16×6, 17×4.5 and 17×7 inch sizing, with the correct backspacing for all models.

Packard wire wheels feature 52 stainless steel spokes configured in a cross-laced pattern, and mated to a steel, chrome-plated hub. The wheels are expertly trued before they leave the Roadster facility, so you don’t have to worry about the constant maintenance wire wheels are known for. Another worry-free aspect is the fact that Roadster’s rendition of the Packard wire wheel is a tubeless design, meaning the spokes are sealed precisely to prevent leaks. The center cap is made from steel and features the same high-quality chrome finish, along with detailed paint work around the Packard lettering, and inside the original hex shaped insert. Don’t forget about valve stems, and remember that a Packard just doesn’t carry the same heritage without a set of wide whitewall tires.
