I went to my local 4wheelparts today to get a quote for these wheels. The employee told me I need the "hub" centric version. Ive read here to get the "lug" centric ones. Can you guys with these wheels verify which are the ones I need. Thanks....Im looking at the 17x8

Personally, they are my favorite after market wheel.
+1. It would be nice if they would offer a 16x8 or 16x8.5 version with a -6mm or -12mm offset .....

I'm confused about Lug or hub centric thing too.

My factory steelies are hub centric.

I've heard some say their factory alloys are lug centric.

Wouldn't hub centric also be lug centric as well ? Making it even stronger ?

Where would I find an "official" answer ? and not just someone's opinion.

I'm looking for some black alloys and would like to get it right the first time.

Factory wheels are hub-centric. The lug nuts have a flat seating surface, therefore the wheels need to be mounted on the hub from possible shifting around at high-speeds or when hitting bumps.

Aftermarket wheels are lug-centric since their center bores are large to fit a variety of vehicles. The lug holes on the wheels have a angled seating service (60 deg), so the lug nuts have this same angled design (that is how the lugs nuts center the wheel and are therefore called lug-centric wheels). None of the weight is on the hub anymore, but on the lugs.

Using a hub-centric ring will allow the wheel to be centered as soon as you mount it (like factory wheels), not relying on the lugs nuts to "self center" the wheel. With the rings your aftermarket wheels are now HUB *AND* LUG-centric.

You've opened a whole can of worms my friend...it seems everyone has got an argument or opinion on this issue. Check out this thread:

I got the 6089 chrome wheel in 17x8 from 4Wheel parts in 2/07. You need the non hubcentric ones listed on the site. The last 2 digits of the part # should be 83 (ie 7089-xx83) for the Toyotas. The other listed 6 x 5.5 ends in 38 (7089 - xx38) these have a smaller center bore and wont fit our trucks.

The fitment for our trucks is good very little space between the hub and bore only couple mm. Hope this helps.
