Hub Centric Rings

I believe this topic has been covered as to whether or not rings are available for the Pro Comp 1069. My question is related to necessity of the rings.

Can anyone say with confidence that hub centric rings are/are not necessary for Pro Comp 1069 wheels?

I just installed a set on my JK...17 x 9 with 285/70-17 Mud terrains ... I've run these for years without incident on my TJ. The techs at Morris 4wd say Pro Comps are Lug-Centric ... I haven't spoken to Pro Comp.

I appreciate your opinions.

Thanks!

I've never seen anyone running aftermarket wheels that are hub centric. You won't have any issues as long as you use the right lug nuts and they are torqued properly. I would check and see which lug nut they recommend.

The right lugs and correct torquing is really the most important with this kind o thing.

Hub centric rings are really a plus all the way around, they center the wheel on e hub as should be, they put the stress on the hub instead of the lugs as was designed, can't go wrong using them.
