Hub Size
« on: January 21, 2019, 10:12:02 AM »
Hi everyone,

I own a Prado which runs 6 stud 17" wheels. Looking at purchasing a secondhand Tvan, and I see some Tvans for sale that are listed with 6 stud, 16" wheels.

Does anyone know if you can simply change a 16" wheel to a 17" wheel - or is there more involved?

Thanks


Cam

I changed our 16” wheels over to 17” Prado alloy rim, for wheel compatibility. I also changed the studs over to M12 x 1.5, to accomodate the Prado wheel nuts. You will need to consider the rim offset, and stud pcd. The std Prado is ET+25, and pcd 139.7. You will need to make sure Tvan axle stub is of a suitable length, and the hub has the correct pcd. I happened to be lucky, as everything fitted well.

You have to be sure the centre hole in the wheel is a snug fit as well.
Some Mitsubishi wheels the centre hub hole is too small for Tvans and the wheel has to be made or altered.
