ve/f studs and lug nuts a bigger/ thicker than earlier models dont know if you can drill them out it may compromise the integrity of the wheel and cause it to crack

ve/f are bigger.. vb-vz wheel studs are all the same size thats why it easier to fit wheels from ve/f to earier commys by just removing the lip in the middle and you can get the lug nuts that are especially made for this conversion

Have seen VY rims advertised as fitting VE, but generally come with wheel spacers 8mm or so. I’m guessing wheel offset is different VY to VE also?

Off set is different. A VB-VZ wheel will have many different off sets as it is, yet all fit.

Generally a VY-VZ Wheel will sit noticeably inward of the guard if fitted to a VE.

As mentioned the studs are different and centre.

Yes offset is different with the vE/VF wheel and the reason they sell them with spacers is so you don't have to get the centre machined....Spacers are illegal to fit too

Without getting specific, most pre-VE are +48 offset, and most VE/VF have a variety of +38 or +43 offset.
