    Most of the aftermarket wheels out there that actually fit our trucks are Lug-Centric. The pro-comp wheels I'm running (black steelies) are lug centric and I've had no problems at all.

    it's not really a yes or no answer.

    most, if not all toyota factory wheels are hub centric

    most after market wheels are lug centric.

    they both do the same thing...center the wheel on the hub assembly.

    what pro comp wheels are you looking at?

    The wheels you are looking "1069" are lug centric. you should check out "Wheelers Offroad". They have wheels made for them by pro-comp for the proper fittment to our trucks, and the prices are pretty good as well. I know from dealing with them in the past their service is great too.

    Hit up PresidentRedz i know he's running the the 16X8 black alloy. I had the alloy finish but procomp has no clear coat on those wheels and they get real crappy looking unless you polish them all the time. the black powder coated ones stay looking good!!! that's my next set!!!
