1982 300D wheel size

I want to know if the factory alloy wheels on a 1982 300D Turbo Diesel can be swapped for the older style with the painted hubcaps that match the body color? Are the same size wheels, same bolt pattern, can the same tires be used from the alloy wheels? Any interchangeability issues?
Thanks for any help

They can easily be swapped, as the alloys were options in any event.

They do REQUIRE different lug bolts, of course.

^ What he said. Same size rim, same offset, shorter lugs.
