I picked up some 10 inch mag wheels and eventhough the bolt pattern fits the center hole on the rim is about half an inch in diameter larger than the hub. Is there an adapter for this? I don't want to bring the wheel any further out and all the adapters I have seen will do this.

This is what I am talking about, if my message was not clear.

You can have a machine shop make you some short cylinderical spacers that are like block cylinder sleeves that have a flange on them so when the wheel is put on they can't fall out the front.

This has been mentioned with respect to rotor holes being over sized so isn't all that big a deal, imho..

Shouldn't be much of a job at all unless it flat costs too much machining and set-up time.

I'm still trying to figure out what the problem is!!!! LOL!!!!!!! Many wheels are lug-centric, meaning they center off the lugs/studs just like the one in the picture. They work fine that way.

You maybe correct! My concern is the forces applied are only distributed by the lug nuts. I would have believed that if it fit properly that the axle hub or whatever it's called would also aid in the distribution of load.

Hub-centric has to be stronger still, but most all aftermarket wheels aren't built that way anymore, at least from the ones I see. I've had lug-centric wheels on virtually every car I've owned and never had a problem.
