Default That much of a difference here?

I'm looking to replace my OEM 20inch rims on my 2012 F150 FX4.

Looking to get the Helo HE887 rims
Click the image to open in full size.

I found these rims from two vendors however the sizes are a little off and I'm wondering if it's a huge deal or not.

From Amazon, the wheels measure;
20x8.5"/6x135,139.7mm, +38mm offset

From CarID, the wheels measure;
20" x 8.5", +38 Offset, 6x135 Bolt Pattern, 100.5mm Hub

Main difference is in the hub size as the CarID rims are about 1.5" smaller than the ones from Amazon. I'd like to go with Amazon since they have free shipping.

Is the hub size that much of a difference here or no? Never bought rims before so not sure how much/little impact the difference in hub size will be.

thanks.

Not sure the hub size of an F150 off the top of my head. It is extremely important. To small wheel won't fit. Too big then you get into lug-centric vs. hub-centric and may need hub rings or different lug nuts to adapt the wheel.

Your first wheel is a multi fit pattern. That's why it has the larger centre bore. I think I would avoid a multi fit wheel and choose the wheel that's designed to fit your truck.
