Exclamation AR Rims center gap to big for hub.

I have 16x8 black and chrome American Racing Tactic rims. When I bought the truck the rims had just been mounted on. After about a week of driving a lug snapped and the axle came completely out of my rear left rim. I had to switch back to my stock rims because the mechanic said the gap between the rim and the hub is to big. Is there a spacer large enough to fit the rims firmly on the truck? and if so what size and where can i find them?

technical name is "centric" spacers take measurements in mm of rim hole and hub.. contact some eBay sellers n see if they can solve your problem

I couldnt really find anything to measure it properly with but I'm pretty sure the diameter of the hub is 70.3 and the inner diameter of the rim is roughly 82? I'm not sure but is this a realistic size for the rim?
