E-T II Wheels

I have an opportunity to pick up a set of 4 original 15" x 7" 1960's E-T II wheels in good condition. They have the elongated (slotted) lug nut holes, and have the correct washers and nuts to suit the 5 on 4.75" Chevy pattern. The guy selling them gave me the hub hole size, which is about 3/8" greater in diameter than the hub hole on my YH Rallyes..... so, it looks like the E-T's are lug-centric, not hub-centric.
Any issues in running lug-centric wheels?

Yes, this was the uni-lug concept - one size fits all.
The wheels with the correct bolt circle size washers, the combo had about 0.020" slop.
Something you won't notice.

However, you could have a machine shop make you a slip fit sleeve between the hubs, tighten the lug nuts, then snap the center caps back on.

Thanks Everett - that's a neat solution! I've heard that a lot of aftermarket rallyes (like Wheel Vintiques) are also lug-centric, and there's heaps of them rolling around without any apparent problems, but to my mind, if the wheel is bearing on the hub, then you're not putting all your trust in the wheel studs.
