I did this exact thing to a bike rack I made for my brother worked out pretty good.
I have a trailer project finishing up right now in my barn, when that is out, its time to start the front bumper. Will update this thread when that starts.
Pretty much exactly what I did when I built my rear bumper and works perfect. There really is no need for a lock washer as the bolt hitting the insert provides more than enough pressure to stop the bolt from backing out. I have had a 38.5" tire on it and not a single rattle.
Great job on the bumper!
