I never had any issues with lug centric wheels: (i) 2008 Xterra with them, no issues; (ii) 2008 4Runner, no issues (in fact, I never got even a slight vibration with these); and (iii) '12 GC, no issues.

I may be mistaken, but for what I understand hub centric are typically for FWD cars (had a 2003 Si with aftermarket wheels, and they came with the rings).

Lug centric wheels are perfectly fine, you just have to make sure you install them correctly. First, you have to make sure the lug nuts you're using are lug centric. Second, the lug nuts need to be installed with the tires off the ground. Finally, the lug nuts need to be torqued a little bit at a time, torquing in a star fassion.

Again, nothing wrong with lug centric. A lot of factory wheels are lug centric.

I agree, the only issues with lug vs hub centric wheels I have heard about are from yahoos that go into craigslist and buy hub centric wheels that just happen to fit a lug pattern and not get the rings.

I just got the Jeep back from a chassis specialist shop that balanced the wheels on the Road Force balancer, and it is MUCH better, but not like stock. It's so much better that I almost feel like it's 100% compared to what it was before I brought it to them. Kind of funny how different shops have their strengths and weaknesses, as they told me the steering wheel wobble was better, but he couldn't figure out why it sounded like an airplane at around 70MPH...guess they didn't notice the Yakima rack up top (without fairing). FWIW, they said these ProComp wheels ARE hub centric and had the rings on them.

Thanks to everyone that helped me solve this problem...now to tackle the problem with the minor rubbing that is going on with hard turns and deceleration...

Maybe because it is late and trouble understanding...what did they do to fix the vibration? Re-balance?

Glad you hear it was fixed, though.

They balanced the wheels/tires on a machine called Road Force. I have no clue what it is or how it is different from a regular spin balance machine, but I'm sure someone here will chime in with the answer. Do you have rubbing issues in the front wheel wells? If so, did you do anything about it?

Ok, that is what I thought. Haha

No rubbing with my specs. I know guys here with RRO lift also have 32" and 33" and I am around 31.5". I want taller tires but also don't wanna "stuff" the wheel well and have no room for flexing.

Caniac, could you post some more pictures of your jeep? Looks awesome. Haven't seen that color before.

I have the RRO lift just saving up for some tires now. Thinking about your setup. Thanks!
