    Since the truck is built hubcentric - Hubcentric is the right way to go. You CAN use lugcentric but you need to be VERY methodical about what you are doing and make sure you have exactaly the right parts.
    If you don't you risk wobbly steering feel and possibly even shearing lugs (as I understand it)

    Bump for others to chime in....

    The Hoss will be just fine. If you order from wheelsforless.com, they include plastic hub rings and new lugs. Free shipping, too.

    I bought my XD Monsters from them. No problems.
