Question Help!! New wheels wont fit!

Hey guys, I just bought a new set of Miro 279 lm replicas. They're 5x120 and I made sure the offsets worked but when I just went to put them on I found that the hubs are exactly the same size (line up flush instead of fitting over) and they won't clear. Because of this is looks like the lugs all need to be slightly further out as well. Is there anything i can do to make these fit? Adapters or milling the center the millimeter to clear? I'm devasted these aren't fitting

You just answered your own question. Mill the hub, or spacers/adapters the have the correct hub diameter.

Help!! New wheels wont fit!

Sounds like you got a set of wheels with incorrect center bore. Return it and specify what vehicle you have and get a different set with correct center bore.

Assuming these are 72.6mm, you probably just need to clean your hub. Take a wire brush to it and clean off any rust that may have accumulated.
