2004 Pace Arrow 37C Aluminum Wheels swap

Hello there, wondering if anyone has had any success interchanging their 22.5 x 6.5 offset 5.7 steel rims with 22.5 x 7.5 offset 5.9 aluminum. Steel replacements are hard to find and cost as much as aluminum rims.
TIA!

Ok here’s an update if anyone needs: the above wheel (22.5x7.5 offset 149mm (5.86”)) is available as item code A228202 Aluminum Wheel. I found it on Amazon, Alibaba, and Alu-wheels.com.
I contacted Workhorse and they noted that the OEM wheel is no longer available but the dimensions of the wheel in question would probably work. The variance is as follows:
Inner Clearance draws in 17mm less (.67”)
Outer clearance extends out 9mm (.35”)
These variances do not seem like they would present a problem and they are based on calculations only provided by 1010tires.com on-line offset calculator so all of this is relatively hypothetical.
I will order and update with results

Note this swap is out of necessity due to corrosion along the tire bead

Update:

These rims fit perfectly but the mounting flange is more than double in thickness compared to the OEM steel rims, which uses up any available thread for nut covers to attach. I found some dome hub cover that I will order from Amazon, Grand General 10760 Chrome Universal Front Hub Cap that I hope will fit that 221mm bore without too much mod required

CORRECTION
The correct part number for that rim is A227506 which is 7.5” wheel width. All other specs and description is correct however.
The A228202 is for an 8.28” width wheel.
