Ok, i just purchased a set of brand new sand paddles and fronts from a guy for a killer deal. This includes 4 rims.

The problem is, the rims have holes for LUGS/STUDS that are apron 1/16 inch smaller than the LUGS/Studs on my viking. Do i got to a machine shop and have them drill them out? Also, the rims don't have any "dimple" in them for the round part of the LUG NUT to go into, so do i buy a special type of lug nut for these rims?

I would use a dremel tool to make it bigger because it's gonna be hard to use a drill bit on that.

So i just ended up drilling them out with a 15/32 bit. Then every so slightly reaming them a tiny bit to allow the studs to just barely pass threw the opening. I turned the lugs around so the flat part is now against the rim and that seems to be working thus far.
