Looking for a stylish and strong hub-centric wheel? Then look no further than the popular XHD Aluminum Wheels by Rugged Ridge. The toughest new design in custom wheels for the 2007-2014 Wrangler, this hub-centric design exactly centers the wheel over the hub providing proper balance, clearance for brake rotors, steering components, and suspension. With a better fit and no wheel vibration, this wheel allows for ultimate control and consistently smooth travel for even the most rugged of expeditions. Rugged Ridge wheels have been independently tested and certified to exceed SAE J2530 standards for wheel strength and durability Backspacing is 4.53" with a -12mm offset.
Nearly all OEM wheels are designed to be hub-centric. The automaker designs an OEM wheel to fit on a certain car or range of cars. The center bore of the wheel is sized to fit perfectly onto the axle of that car. This is a hub-centric connection, as the wheel is centered by its connection to the axle hub. The lugnuts hold the wheel firmly to the mounting plate, but it is the wheel-to-axle connection that actually holds the weight of the car. This is quite an important distinction, as the lugnuts are designed to handle lateral forces that push the wheel away from the mounting plate. The forces that the hub and center bore connection are designed to withstand – the weight of the car forcing downward and impacts forcing upward – are at right angles to the forces that the lugnuts are designed for. When you choose a non-hub-centric wheel, the forces will need to be handled by the lugnuts and studs, which can lead to premature wear and unwanted vibrations.
