Morning all,

I managed to source a descent set of rims for my 1982 300GD, as the PO drilled and tapped new holes in the hubs for Jeep wheels with the 127 pcd.

When I wanted to fit the new wheels with the correct PCD and centre bore I was horrified to discover that the "hub centric rings" on all 4 hubs had been ground off.
Just enough of the rear "ring" and front 3 prong "lips" were left to centre the drums and discs.
I presume this was done to accommodate the Jeep wheels with a smaller centre bore, which in effect meant the wheels weren't hub centric and the load was soley on the wheel studs.

I am thus in need of 2 x front hubs and 2 x rear side shafts.

Any leads will be most welcome.

Thanks

Jerry

Eish, unfortunately with these older vehicles there are a lot of "Boer maak n plan" fixes that cause the next owner headaches.
And I was about to say I see nothing wrong in the pictures. ;):D
