Hub centric means the wheel uses the Jeep's hub itself to center itself properly and does not rely on the lug nut studs. Most aftermarket wheels are not hub centric, they use the wheel studs to get the wheel properly centered. The Jeep came from the factory with hub centric wheels but few of us run hub centric aftermarket wheels, aftermarket hub centric wheels aren't real common.
