I don't think so and I don't think it's that easy...how much oversize would you want? would you need them oval to match the holes etc etc.

What I did was drill out the holes and make up rings and brazed them in place using a hub as a template.

There's a single wheel on eBay at the moment in the North East I believe.

Hi Steve,

John's repair to the wheel would seem a far better option than considering larger drive pegs. I would also suggest that you check why the damage has occured, enlarging of the wheel holes is not a normal 'wear' situation and is indicative of the wheels moving on the hub.
