A few folks say the ION hub diameter is slightly smaller and needs to be slightly bored out

But it's been done, and looks great

I have those rims on my S series, they're a nice low cost upgrade.

However, I have found that the 205/55/16's are a bit too big for my car. Although the ride is nice and smooth, you can feel the extra tire hieght holding you back from hard starts.

I think going to 205/50/16 is the best tire size for running them on S series cars.

Oh and the hub bore does have to be bored out a bit, but you can do it with a good round hand file if you're handy.


...
My 96 SL2 and 98 SL1 have joined together to become one. So I guess I now have a 1996/8
SL1-2.
