Wheel question for hubs

hey guys
i have a chance to pick up a set of alcoa look alike 16x10 wheels for $100. Now the real problem is that I know most aftermarket wheels are not hubcentric. And the ones I am looking at are also not hubcentric. My stock wheels are hubcentric as are all factory style rims. I much prefer hubcentric over a lugcentric wheel. I had a set of 20s on my wifes car and we had to put these spacers to make the wheels hubcentric. That was just part of the price when i bought the wheels and tires the shop did that. Does anyone know how much the rings that make the wheels hubcentric cost?

Any of you guys have problems with wheels that are not hubcentric?

if you don't knw the terms hubcentric is the wheel center hole rests on the axle center hub and the lugnuts basically hold the wheel on the truck the weight rests on the hub.

lugcentric the lugs hold the wheel on the truck AND also locate and hold the weight.

What makes no sense to me is since the Superduty has such a unique bolt pattern how hard is it to drill the center hole in a hubcentric pattern.

Nevermind. i called a buddy and he said he can whip up four of them no problem
