Millions of off road rigs have covered billions of miles with lug centric wheels, we had them on two Jeeps that had the snot beat out of them, you will be fine.Wheels got here today so I pulled a front and tried the new wheel on. The stock wheels fit very close to the hub with a lip. The new wheels are not hub centric and have a gap around the hub. Is this acceptable? Will new or different lug nuts be needed?
Clearance at the caliper, tie rod end, and elsewhere is excellent as far as I can tell. I'd like to get the tires mounted in the next day or so, but need to find out if the wheels will work like this first.
ETA: picking up new lug nuts tomorrow and hopefully finding time to get tires mounted
The metal fender liners on these old rigs do a great job of amplifying rock hits that would go unnoticed in a newer vehicle with plastic liners!Only down side so far is that they are prone to hold gravel that starts slinging out around 20-25 mph. I guess most larger lug deep tread tires are like this.
