Machining Canyon center hole?

I thought about putting a set of Canyons on a trailer I pull around with my TJ. I would need to enlarge the center hole to fit over the trailer's bearing dust cap. It looks like just the ring that retains the JEEP center cap needs to be removed, the balance of the center hole is large enough.

Has anybody done this?
What about fitting the Canyon wheel over a Warn "small" front hub conversion?

Yes, I know it is a casting and the potential issues with cast aluminum and casting defects.

It'd cost an arm and a leg to machine out that hole on two wheels. It'd be better to just find wheels that fit without need for machining. Neither my steel wheels nor my aluminum AR23 wheels needed any machining to fit over my Warn hubs. The hole needs to be 2.78" or bigger to fit over the Warn 5x4.5" hub kit.

When you have a choice, buy American.
