There seems to be a few mm out...and if these wheels dont fit the van any ideas wot they would fit other than another orion?
They should fit the van (I'm assuming they're 14" wheels but 13" or so already on the van). Maybe it's just a tight fir on the hub, it wouldn't be uncommon. Try greasing the hub with copper grease of similar and then try reapplying them. The only reason I can think of that they wouldn't fit is that car derived vans might have heavier duty steering/suspension setup and components than their lighter counterparts. I've moved this to the R&M section for you, as it's better suited here!
