Wj Is a WJ Lug Centric or Hub Centric?

Is a WJ lug centric or hub centric? I have Pro Comp Series 98 Rock Crawler wheels on my WJ with the Xtreme Steel Wheel Center Cap Kit. I was told that they aren't fitting right and that I might need hub centric rings. I want to make sure that the WJ is hub centric before spending money on the rings. If it is hub centric then which hub centric rings do I need for my WJ?

WJ is hub centric. I think almost all steel wheels are lug centric, and there are a lot of people running lug centric steelies on WJ's.

Is that why the lugs are tapered?

Yes, the tapered lugs will help seat and center the wheel. Its not as perfect as being hub-centric, but it works well enough. FYI, from some quick googling it looks like most alloy wheels are manufactured hub centric and steel wheels lug centric.

what he said! its because softer metals deform easily, so they are hub centric, and steel being more dense and less prone to deforming get lug centric, but with spacers most would recommend hub centric regardless of wheel type, that way u can decrease the chance of unwanted vibrations in your wheels and drivetrain
