Everyone will tell you NO, you can't do that. The answer is YES, you can. IF you use the proper lug nuts for the wheel.

Ideally, you'd just put wheels on there that are the same style as factory, IE: hub centric. However, for many many many cars/trucks on the road, they came factory with lug centric wheels. If the wheel fits, has proper fasteners, and is torqued properly- you'll be fine.



As a disclaimer I do have to say I take NO responsibility if you mess up your truck, a wheel falls off, you wreck, or hurt/kill anyone by doing any of this. I can't attest to your ability to complete the job properly, it's not personal.

My center caps say Panther. The wheels were on the truck when I bought it, so I'm not sure if that's right. I haven't personally taken a wheel off yet, since I get free rotations at Pep Boys. I can wiggle the front center cap around so I'm thinking they might be lug centric. Again, I'm not sure.

I've driven plenty of vehicles that for sure had lug centric wheels though, and never had a problem.
