    I want a set of these http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/S...s=210&t_pt=100073&t_pl=5452&t_pn=PXA9089-7838 but they only offer in a hubcentric type for 6 lug, will it fit my taco? Threads i have read say that hub centric pro-comps wont fit due to hub too small for our trucks is there a removable hub centric ring that can be removed or is the bore just smaller on the hubcentric ones than the non hub centric models? please any info greatly appreciated

    i think you got the terminologies mixed up. what you want are hub-centric wheels. this means that the wheels were specifically made to properly fit that certain vehicle. when mounted, the wheel is centered on the hub. this helps minimize vibrations and balancing issues. our tacomas have a 106mm hub bore.

    many wheels out there are lug-centric which basically means that the wheels, when mounted, are centered using the lugs. these type of wheels are more susceptible to vibration issues. to compensate for the larger hub opening, shops, wheel manufacturers, and wheel dealers offer hub-centric rings. for example, wheel "A" might have a common wheel hub opening of 108mm. this wheel might be offered to the tacoma guys with 108mm to 106mm hub-centric rings to get a proper fit.

    edit: i tried looking for the size of the hub opening for these wheels, but i can't find any info on the size.

    cant offer any good info about them being hub centric, but i know 3 people who have had the knight chrome, and after a few months theyve all had bubbling issues. to the point where procomp had to take em back and send them new wheels.
