Any more so than when the original wheels are set for a 56" track? Without measuring, I don't think so.
There is a lot more outboard weight and hence leverage on that one. Look how deep the rim is, well beyond the Cub 56" setting.

The same bolt pattern as the center disk on any Cub. Unclear why it becomes a problem in this situation.
There is a lot more outboard weight and hence leverage on that one that can cause the center disc to flex beyond design capacity.
How can you compare a 24” wheel with a separate center disc to a 16” one peace wheel that is designed for the offset? Like I said above, they work on a numbered cub with no problems.
