Alcoa Wheels on Manual hubs?

I own a 94 ranger with the manual hubs. I am looking at gettting some alcoa from a guy up the road. I would hate to drive an hour just to find out they don't fit. I am guessing I can't use the caps but would they fit? Thanks

The bore in my Alcoas is just under 3". It's too dark outside to get a real accurate measurement but I'd call it about 2 15/16".

I'm pretty sure they'll work. I have alcoas on my trailer and the bearing caps have to be at least 2.5" in dia. Like everyone else said, you just won't be able to use the wheel caps.
