That same person also posted there are no advanatges to hubcentric. Well, usually it doesn't matter, but occasionally it does.
Actually I think stock wheels are both hub and lug centric so you are both right.

You take yourself way too seriously in this Tire section. You really aren't the expert you seem to think you are and you are not king of this sandbox. Step back, take a deep breath and relax.

Lugcentric wheels are fine!

That was pretty uncalled for especially since you don't entirely disagree with him.

Stock wheels are both in a way, but since they're hub-centric, the lugs don't and will never do any centering. In my mind, the hub "trumps" the lugs.

Anyway, the bottom line here is that there's nothing really wrong with lug-centric wheels as long as you mount them correctly. Not much else to be said in this thread imo.

Wow. That was personal and a bit harsh. I feel bad now.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend anyone.

I have a high level of respect for you Biffgnar, and I appreciate the good help and advice you've given me on maintenance and modification topics.

I agree with Charley3 that hub centric is a real advantage when available. For those buying aftermarket wheels and who want hubcentricity, there is a company, which provides most sizes of hub rings - justforwheels.com.
