Hub Centric vs. Lug Centric Wheels

Hub Centric vs. Lug Centric Wheels


 Some wheels are not designed to center on the hub flange. These non-hub centric wheels are referred to as “lug centric”, because they are centered on the lug bolts or studs as the wheel hardware is gradually tightened. To reduce the risk of runout and vibration, lug centric wheels should never be tightened with the weight of the vehicle on the wheel.
