17 inch wheels, 8x6.5

I have 5 black MB wheels that I had on my van for about 2 years. Only flaw is that one is missing one of the simulated beads. The other four are in very good condition. They are -12 offset which didn’t work real well with my sliding door.

All 5 for $250. Local pick up preferred but I drive up to Portland pretty often and Seattle as well along with NorCal.

Whit you have an Express right? Will these fit an E350? If so I'm very interested. I'm in Sonoma County, NorCal.

Thanks,
Robert

The bolt pattern on the GM vans should be the same, but the center bore is likely too small. I was looking into this option for my van, too (different set of wheels though).

Bolt pattern is the same I’m almost positive. The center bore, if not the same is really similar but you’d want to do some research. I’ll see if I can find something that says.

Found this Bolt pattern | Stud Pattern : bolt pattern / Stud Pattern 8 X 165.1 . Looks like the GM center bore is 117 and Ford is 124.9 .

Hmmm. So the center would have to be bored out almost 8mm to fit Ford hubs. What does the forum think? Is this even possible? Would it reduce wheel strength or load capacity?

Here they are, looks like the hub bore is actually 125 so they'd work. I can measure them if you'd like when I get home.

And correction it looks like the offset is -12.

I too have a slider. I know MG used to sell an extension but I'm not finding it right now. Has anyone bought one from him recently?

Weldtec can make them too I think. MG has a tutorial on how to make them if you're handy with a welder.


They could work for your Ford without, I'm just not sure.

I'll check with Jeremy. I have an Astro with the problem so would like to avoid it this time. My welding skills are zero, unfortunately.
