Mickey Thompson Classic Wheel ?

I have a question for those of you who are running the Mickey Thompson Classic wheels. I have a set of 16x8 and noticed that the center hub hole is slightly bigger then on my stock 15" ranger wheels. I didn't think that this would matter. My front doesn't even have a mating (male) hub because of the 4 wheel drive lockout which is flat. Can someone tell me what size the hub hole is on their M/T's?
Thanks, George

the hob hole is no reason to worry yourself all aftermarket wheels the hole is larger then the stock hub so it will fit fine...

the only problem is they are not "hub centric" like stock wheels, meaning some people complain of balancing issues.. but thats very few and far between...

Yeah I didn't think it was an issue plus it would have to be bigger to be able to put the push thru center cap on. I was just wondering because I bought new tires and the place wouldn't put them on my truck because of the bigger hole. They put the tires on the rims but would not install them on the truck.

I cant find to many places around here that will to be honest with you. Its a "liability" for them, There losing alot of business, youde think theyde write up a waiver for people so sign so they could cover there butts. I know many Tire Warehouses around here wont mout and balance a tire if its larger then OE, weather it was on the truck before hand or not...
