Having a hole through the middle distributes the stresses around the shaft.
Depending on the dimensions, this means a large circular hollow shaft is usually (much) stronger
than a smaller solid shaft, for the same metal.
Ribs fillets and fillers in aircraft often have hole(s) in them for the same reason.
How about a 1.625 diameter hole, leaving 0.062 wall thickness?
