  • Wheel offset bible for ML MN triton (Challenger)

    The following is a listing of the wheel sizes that comes standard for the Triton; other vehicle makes with the same stud pattern; and wheels from 3rd party manufacturers. It was compiled to assist other Triton owners in wheel selection.
    The following list only includes 6 stud on 139.7mm PCD wheels. The Triton is lucky in that the centre bore is the smallest in the market- all rims in 6 stud 139.7 PCD will fit (subject to other constraints)
    Note that the triton rims are "stud centric" use the studs to centre and hold the wheel, such that the hub is not weight loading- but different rims require different wheel nuts- make sure the correct type is used. info regarding steel rims and alloy rims in VSB14
    Replacement wheels must be designed for the particular hub/axle and have the same bolt/stud pitch circle diameter and the same centre location method. The wheel nuts or bolts must have the same tapers as the wheel. Wheels with slotted bolt/stud holes must not be used.
    Replacement aluminium alloy rims must be located on the hub/axle by the same diameter centre spigot as the original wheel, using suitable adaptor rings where necessary.
    Wheel nuts and bolts must have a thread engagement length at least equal to the thread diameter, except where specified otherwise by the vehicle manufacturer.
    Wheel spacers (or adaptors for dual wheel conversions) between the wheel mounting face and the road wheel must not be used unless fitted as original equipment by the vehicle manufacturer.
    Modifications to disc brake callipers, hubs and suspension and steering components to enable the fitting of replacement wheels must not be undertaken.

    To use this list successfully, you need to do the following:
    1. Look up the wheel size and offset for your current vehicle. (note: If you have a GlX you can change to wider wheels. In this case, use the next model up as a point of reference- this may require flares)
    2. Look down the list and find the wheel(s) with the same offset or lower.
    Note the lower the number the wider the track
    3. The wheel diameter and width is then up to you. There are various things to consider when choosing diameter and width, so I won't go further into this here.
    4. Make sure you double check with the tyre shop or search through New Triton for other members who have successfully made a swap.
    The list is currently incomplete. Please advise if you have something to add (including any corrections) and I will maintain this first post.

        Thanks for the info.

        ET30 seems to be a common size for aftermarket wheels. Does everyone fit these onto PB challengers/tritons without a problem?

          Yep offset of +30 works and is very similar to standard

                  I currently have 6 stud Prado Landcruiser standard rims and tyres on my MK 2003 Mitsubishi Triton dual cab
                  had to make a small modification to widen the centre hole of the rim by no more than a mill.
                  I have no problems with them and they do look good

                      2013 BT50 has a wheel offset of +55. Triton is +38 so you would be reducing the the track with the BT wheels which is illegal even if they fitted (which is very unlikely).

                      Note it is legal toincrease track by up to 25mm/side (ie 50mm total),
