In American, early wheels use 12mmx1.5 thread, late wheels use 14mmx1.5. To fit 14mm wheels to a 12 mm car you would need special lug bolts with a 12mm thread and 14mm shank. I *think* the early wheels use a ball seat and 14mm a cone seat.
If fitting to a R171, do a trial fit with hand tight 12mm lug bolts and make sure they clear the front calipers.
