End result, I took it on the highway and it drove perfectly and it cost me less than $40.
The lugs are designed to prevent issues like this. They are kind of conical, so that when you tighten them, they center themselves in the post hole.

Then only way this would not work is if the whole weight of the car was on the wheel even before it was tightened. Extremely doubtful...
