I think this is worth worrying about. I've definitely seen stripped out lug 
bolt holes due to something being thicker than stock so that the bolts did not 
get full purchase in the hole. Those holes are less than 1 diameter thick, so 
there's really nothing to spare.

Does anyone know where to buy somewhat longer spherical collar bolts?
