    I have a 1999 Tacoma Prerunner. I am looking for wheel spacers but am unsure if my wheels are hub centric or lug centric. I do that lug centric wheels were mainly on older models but am still interested in hearing feedback from other people.

    Thank you!

    Toyota stock wheels are hub centric and you want hub centric wheel spacers.

    First gens are LUG centric. Second gens are HUB centric.

    Don't ask me how I found this out the hard way when I first ordered some HUB centric rims for my '02.

    Pretty much the only wheels that are Hub Centric, are the Factory Toyota Alloy Wheels. All other wheels are Lug Centric. We carry the SpiderTrax Wheel Spacers that are for Hub Centric wheels. They also work with Lug Centric wheels as well.

    The aftermarket wheels you order may have to be lug centric , but he is asking about the stock wheels, which are hub centric, as Dan confirmed above.
