Just trying some wheels on my EF which come off a Jeep wrangler. The stud pattern is good the only thing is i am not sure if its too close to the sterring knuckle. It spins around ok but i dont have a tyre on the rim. There is a small gap maybe only about 5mm or less between the wheel and the steering knuckle. Is this ok?

Well depending on where abouts it sits, but if its close to the rim its fine, Generally your wheels are bolted to the hub fairly tightly, so nothing is going to flex too much. The bulge in the sidewalls of the tyres might be what catches you out in the end. Do you have any pics of the mags?

I think with the rim that close to the knuckle, you're going to have to run some pretty skinny tyres to avoid the sidewall from bulging and rubbing on the knuckle.
