The lug nuts are commonly what center your wheel on your axle, and this is known as a lug-centric-style wheel. There are hub-centric wheels that are centered by the hub of the axle, but these are not as common on 4x4s. One feature we especially like if you can find it is the steel inserts in an aluminum rim for tapered lug nuts. These Mickey Thompson wheels have them and we like how they protect against galling the aluminum with the steel lug nuts.
