Hub question with reguards on aftermarket wheels

Ive got a 00.5 ranger, with 16s. I'm going down to 15s, i already got the wheels/tires. I went and put the wheels on and theres a gap around my "hub" of maybe .25in. I got the wheels from another member, he had them on his 94 mazda. So my question is does that gap really matter that much, i'm live axle and his truck is auto/manual hubs. Any input is appreciated, i really dont want to buy another set of wheels but if i have to i will

Jason

If aftermarket, it wouldn't matter. If stock wheels from a 94, it'll fit a live axle truck...but it wont work vice versa.

I think all aftermarket wheels for 5x4.5 have 3.33" holes for a center cap. But exactly what Jesse just said...rangers are lug centric, not hub centric...so it shouldn't matter.

I think my hub holes are about 1/4" bigger than the 'hub' itself too...

as long as there not Flat style like those Y spokes, or the 5 spoke "tremor" style they work I had what a wheel off 2004 on my 1994 4x4... they just need to have a hub hole not little cap thing...
