Default Wheel bore: is bigger ok

The bolt pattern and offset are ok but the wheels bore is 2mm bigger than the cars original wheels. WOuld it be ok to use these rims or does this put bad shearing stress on the lugs?
thanks !

If you're car is hubcentric, a larger bore will mean all of the stress will be on the studs. .......not a good decision in my opinion unless a ring is used to compensate.


btw, by "wheel bore" I'm assuming you mean the center bore on the inside of the wheel (as in this picture):

It's fine to use them, but try to find some hub centric rings for them if you can.
