The rim is definitely 5.5 inches. They tell me it doesn't make any difference between a 6 and a 5.5. I ordered a 235/75 R15 tire from Coke for the rim.

That's the answer then. I had assumed so but wasn't sure.

It just says part number 338811 for all 22nd, 23rd etc series. They do have a 6 inch wheel in their parts list for the year but don't tell for which model. I'll assume I have 5.5 inch and that the larger tire was for Limoes etc

wheels for 22nd series
#6
Quite a regular

Max Merritt tells me that there were two wheel sizes for the 1948 Packard line, a 6 and a 6.5 width. So far I haven't received a response on FB so now I'm here. I bought a spare wheel that supposedly came from a 48 Packard which measures 5.5 inches on the inside of the rim. The outside is 6.5 inches. My existing wheels on a (manufactured in 1947) 1948 Victoria seem to be out of round by .100 whatever that means. At least three of them are that way. They cause a slight wobble at various speeds and seemingly can't be fixed. So I'm looking for 3 straight wheels but don't know what to ask for.

I suspect they are the same across the line. Has anybody found replacement tanks for these cars? Sources?

I have to see if I can dig up some of the history first. I can't reach the previous owner at the moment. Somebody spent a lot of money on this car. The previous owner registered it in MD in 2012. I need to know where he got it.

I'll report back on the buttons. I have a little red light toggle switch under the dash that presumably is for the electric fuel pump but I heard nothing when switching it off and on. On my green Packard I can hear the fuel pump turn on and off when switching it. My mechanic's first thought as to the buttons was that one might be a starter switch. We shall see.

Thanks Howard. I guess my memory of the soft red glow was that of a purple background but it sure looks red in my brain. So you're saying that refinishing the glow may be more trouble than its worth but if I want to drive at night, what choice do I have? I guess I'll just have to see what the lights look like once they're functional.

While I'm at it. I have two push buttons on the upper left dash and have no clue what they are for. Obviously they were added later. My mechanic will have to trace the wiring behind them to see what their purpose was or is.

It's a beautiful car with chrome and paint as good as new.
