Two things, Jim. 
First - you are sure they aren't "shortcut" bolt pattern to 5 on 120mm?. (BMW and late 5th gen Camaro and GM).  
Second - DO they use tapered seat lug nuts or shank type?

1/8" is a lot. What size is the center hole? You can get wheel rings that will center those. They are not expensive.

Hi all,
I found a wheel,  17x8 with nearly the perfect backspace, 5.25", 5x4.75" pattern. The center hole is larger than the hub so does not self center.
Spinning the wheel mounted on the front hub reveals maybe 1/8th of an inch run out. Is a spacer necessary, or are the studs enough to maintain the wheel securely centered? Street driver only.
They are an off brand retro Torque Thrust that look great.
Thank you,
