    There appears to be conflicting opinions on whether or not one should purchase hub centric or non hub centric wheels and I was wondering if anyone knew what would be best for the truck. I am about to drop the coin on some 17X8 4.5in BS and 0mm Offset and I am unsure of what to do about the hubcentricity (not a word but you know what I mean :D)

    Edit: forgot to add I will be running 285/70/17 BFG A/Ts with 3 inch lift.

    All I know is if you plan on putting on some 33"s, you will need at least a 4.5" backspacing or a -12mm offset which my 18x9 wheels are.

    from what i think hubcentric is the hub on the new wheel matches the thing on the truck where it bolts, non hubcentric will be oversize and you will have problems with vibrations, had that problem on my old car. good luck reading all that, i need a beer.

    from my research, you do not want hub centric rims, you'll need lug centric rims, so if hubcentric=no, you're good to go

    my procomp's are hubcentric, check out 4wheelparts.com, they show all the wheels that will fit your truck and tell you if they are hubcentric or not.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. I have talked to wheelers and tire rack and they said that the hub centric bore would be too small for our trucks, yet others like bajamoon are having no problems with the hub centric wheels. I plan on getting the pro comp 8190 series
