Not really. You're only talking 2mm per side. Don't forget, half of the pegs are already 14mm with 3/8 adapters.

9/16" Get a decent carbide bit. Use oil and go slow to make the hole as clean as possible.

If you are drilling plastic pegs use the bigest washer you can on the inside of the peg to reinforce the inside wall.
