    Hi All,

    Still on the quest for new bigger rims and have come across these which seem to be the correct stud pattern and ET for my Caravelle.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/164833773769?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    After doing a bit of research online it would appear i need to make the lug holes bigger by a couple of mm which i assume is a simple task with a bigger drill bit but how do i make the centre hole bigger? Looks like i need to widen by a couple of mm so is this a case of hitting it with the multi tool or does it need to be done professionally?

    Finally, will i need different wheel nuts?

    Thanks in advance!

    John

    Centre bore may be a problem. It may or may not be able to be enlarged.

    Are the wheel mounting bolts M12 or M14.

    Legally any modifications to wheels must be done by someone licenced.

    That’s it! Being merc rims the centre bore is large enough and the mefro nuts/lugs are M12 ball seat with M14 thread to make it all work the same wheels can be found at wreckers for around $30/rim on Merc c class cars.
