Hi, if the Never Lube hubs can't handle about a .030" offset [sheet metal mounting plate] then they must be junk. What is the tolerance of a wheel, not to mention that of a tire? Remember when we were young and everyone put "Chromed Reversed Wheels" on their cars? I do, but I don't remember anyone having wheel bearing or axle problems because of it.
