4wd Steel Wheel Options

Iím looking to change the wheels on my ute and had a conversation with a tyre/wheel shop and they told me a couple of things that Iím questioning -

1. Steel wheels canít use hub centric rings when the centre bore of the rim is bigger than your vehicle?

2. Steel wheel manufacturers donít make specific rims to get the correct centre bore and PCD for every vehicle?

Example - my Ranger has the same PCD as many other makes, but smaller centre bore which isnít as common as others. So I apparently have to mount rims by studs only. I donít like this idea, Iíve done this previously and itís chewed studs and made it difficult to balance wheels.

Whatís the story?
