Hi, my initial thoughts would be that it would not fit.
The large disc is designed to fit flush, against the wheel face; as you rightly say, to protect the wheel studs / nuts from attack.
Here's some links, that may be of use (but you may have seen them already):
One of those pdfs shows the maximum width of the Centaur range - easiest way to check is to throw a tape across your wheel width, including the bearing saver. My guess is it'd be too wide. Additionally, it'd be unstable against the small face of the bearing saver, as they're designed to fit against the comparatively broad face of a wheel. I think it may be a no-go, I'm afraid.
Any trailer place worth their salt would let you have a quick look, before you decided to purchase, I'd have thought - providing it's on their shelf and they don't have to order it in specially, obviously!
