I'm in the process of buying new tires and while I'm at it I want to replace my split rims (16" duals) with one-piece rims, but I'm having trouble finding rims with coined bolt holes. My tire dealer claims the later wheel with the plain bolt holes will work, but I always understood that they were only for hub-located applications, and that if the wheel wasn't a snug fit on the hub, it needed the tapered holes to locate on the studs.
The Ford dealer is no help. The parts man not only can't find coined wheels, he doesn't know what they are.
Has anybody replaced coined wheels with plain ones. If so, do the nuts stay tight and do the wheels center well enough to not vibrate?
