Thanks. There are not to many hub centric black wheels out there. So thats one of the reasons I went with these ones.

This is off a offroad web site. Just do a search on hub centric wheels.


The Hub-Centric Concept: Well-Centered Wheels

An increasing number of new wheels feature a design element known as hub-centric. On a non-hub-centric wheel, the lug nuts perform double-duty as they pull the wheel into contact with the wheel hub and also provide support to the wheel in the vertical plane. In other words, the lug nuts support the entire weight of the vehicle. With a hub-centric wheel, the large center hole is precisely sized and has a chamfer where it meets the wheel hub. When the wheel is installed and the lug nuts are tightened, the raised centersection of the hub fits tightly into the chamfered hole of the wheel. With a hub-centric design, the lug nuts don't support any of the vehicle's weight; the wheel is supported in the horizontal plane by the precision fit between the hub and the wheel's center bore.

Yes, that was a great explanation.
Thanks!
Only problem I see is that is quite possibly eliminates the possibility of an aftermarket hub.

I do really like the wheels though!
I'll definitely keep them in mind when I'm looking for wheels for my Jeep.
What is the weight rating on them?..
