Hub centric vs Lug centric spacers (for lug centric wheels)?

So I got 32s on my 2004 TJ and wanna keep my wheels. I know to get the correct hub bore measurement (71.5mm) so it fits snug into the TJ's hub (which makes that part "hub centric").

My question is, what about the outer part of the spacer (the part that the wheel connects to)? My wheels are the Alcoa ones that shipped standard on the limited edition Rocky Mountain Edition TJs, which is my understanding that these aren't really factory "Jeep Wheels" & hence aren't hub centric when attached like most the factory ones. These are more like aftermarket.

I've seen some spacers that are the correct bore size, but don't have that lip on the outside to receive a factory wheel. Some do have the lip. Lip: 4 Pcs 1 5" Jeep Wrangler Hubcentric Wheel Spacers XJ KJ KK ZJ MJ TJ 38mm | eBay And here are some with no lip: 4pc 1 5" Wheel Spacers Sixity Pickup Truck SUV Adapters Lugs Studs 5x4 5 BT | eBay Note that both are considered "hub centric" on the inner bore side that snugs up to the TJ since they're 71.5mm.

What do you guys think? Does it even matter? I'm just trying to avoid vibes & want to snug these up best they can for my wheels.

Thanks. I may go ahead & get the ones w the lip too, as they seem to be the more common ones. And couple that with a hub centric wheel ring w the correct measurements. That way it'll make the wheels totally hub centric when attached to those spacers.

What do you think?
