The  center hole of the 
wheel does not have to be a tight fit to the  hub

While the shoulders of the nuts carry a lot of the load, everything I have  
read says the hub carries most of the load.  The nuts primarily keep the  
wheel and hub mated together and spread the load over a wider diameter of the 
 face of the hub flange.  I'd want to keep a tight fit of the wheel hole  
over the hub.  You need both the nuts and the hub for security.
