    Hi , wondering if anyone can help , got a trailer with 14inch tyres , the rims are 5 stud and the spacing between stud centers is about 64mm and the axle hole about 108mm , would this be an early (vb ) type rim ? , as my old vn rims dont fit ! , thanks..........

    Nope, VB and VN use the same stud pattern.

    Could be early Holden (FE to HG), late Holden (HQ to WB), or Ford/Chrysler.

    Best way to measure the PCD is from the middle of one stud, to the furthest edge of an "opposite" stud.

    120mm is Commodore
    120.6mm is Kingswood
    108mm is... early Holden?

    And 114.3 is Ford.
