Automakers design their OEM wheels to be hub-centric, the wheels we carry are also hub-centric. The center bore of the wheel is sized to fit perfectly onto the axle of that car so the weight rests on the axle and not the bolts. This is a hub-centric connection, as the wheel is centered by its connection to the axle hub. The lugnuts hold the wheel firmly to the mounting plate, but it is the hub-centric connection that actually holds the weight of the car. This is quite an important distinction, as the lugnuts are designed to handle lateral forces that push the wheel away from the mounting plate. The forces that the hub and center bore connection are designed to withstand – the weight of the car forcing downward and impacts forcing upward – are at right angles to the forces that the lugnuts are designed for. When you choose a non-hub-centric wheel, the forces will need to be handled by the lugnuts and studs, which can lead to premature and excessive wear.
