If you have any advice\tips on these wheels, please let me know!
See hub centric rims, tons of people have different opinions on them.
Been to a few shops and I hear both arguments.
Not Hub Centric: They say the rim should never rest on the hub in the first place, it is the studs job to hold it in position and take the load
Hub Centric: They say its easier to install because you just shove it over the hub and bolt the puppy on, but with hub centric rims you still notice a touch of play (1/16") possibly. So even with the hub centric rims your rims will not (well shouldn't) rest the load on the hub itself.
Again, its who you go to and what their opinions are. I know tons of guys who run rims that aren't hub centric they just need to make sure they are put on correctly so the rim isn't off centre
