Hubcentric or Lugcentric?

I have a 2012 Liberty Limited that I'm interested in getting some smaller rims/bigger tires for (including the Daystar lift), and I was curious if I need to look at hubcentric or lugcentric wheels? The options I've been coming across for wheels all say they are NOT hubcentric, but I wasn't sure if that mattered for my vehicle.

Thanks!

Personally, I wouldn't use anything but hubcentric, especially if you wheel it.

^^^ This.

For wheels and/or spacers, go with hubcentric regardless of intended use.

problem is finding hub centric rims is almost impossible other then the OEM wheels.Lug centric rims are fin to use and many have used them for 50+ years with no issues,and yes even heavy wheeling.Just think about 95% of all the hardcore whelers use lug centric rims.

Now spacers only use hub centric as there dangerous enough.

Well for the majority of the wheels out there you won't find hub centric for Jeeps. All the wheels I was looking at were all lug centric, especially from Pro Comp. You can get hub centric rings to fill in that little space but most times they are just little pieces of plastic...not sure what that is going to do to be honest. I've ridden my wheels off road and probably have 3000 miles on them with 10 ply tires and they are fine.

I had the same concerns when I bought my rims and I couldn't find any and called a couple off road places here and the Pro Comp Sales number and they all said it was fine.
