Changing from 16.5 inch tires and rims to 17 inch Michelle Evans 10-5-16  
I have an old Dodge Motor Home. The Engine is a 1978 440, the chassis is a 1979 Dodge MB400 and the Body is a 1980 Automate Mini. This has been a pain to work on, but got it on the road after replacing the entire roof and alot of the electrical system, only to be grounded again because the holes on the wheels wallowed out and damaged the lug studs to the point of breaking. Finding new studs has been a hassle, and so has finding new rims.
My question is... is it possible to change the brake drums to a more modern drum that has the newer metric stud pattern thus making it easier to replace rims and tires, or would changing the drums necessitate changing out the entire rear end?
