    Besides TRD wheels, we are the only other wheel company that has a dedicated line of wheels just for Toyota trucks/SUVs. With the Tundra's 110mm hub size, the centerbore of a hubcentric wheel should be 110.1mm which is what TRD and SCS specs out to be. And in case some of you guys aren't aware, the factory that we partnered up with also produces wheels for Toyota TRD.

    Other brands might double the use of their plastic center caps to take up most of the slack or use cheap plastic rings and call it hubcentric. The reason behind this is bc their wheels are made for universal fitment. Sort of like a one size fits all kind of hat. There would be too many different fitment options to offer to make them all hubcentric for the various GM, Ford, Dodge, Nissan, Jeep, and Toyota trucks.

    We wanted our wheels to fit like a nicely tailored suit hence why our first 4 wheel models were made only for Toyota. We've always liked what TRD had to offer, but their specs tended to be more on the conservative side which is understandable. Just like TRD, we wanted to offer true hubcentric wheels that was well designed, catered around the Toyota truck/SUV platform, and be able to offer a more aggressive spec for that perfect looking stance.

    Well its not like a Toyota engineer is going to to post all their research for us so we have a definitive answer.

    But I personally want a wheel that has a proper hub bore so my wheel has more support than just the lugs

    Never really cared bolt them on torque them and drive. When it comes to wheel spacers I think that’s more of a concern.

    Many decades ago I installed some "old school" lug centric wheels that used straight shank lug nuts. It was impossible to perfectly center the wheels & they always had high speed vibration.
    IMO hub-centric is vastly superior and virtually all factory wheels are hub-centric.
    Conical seat lugs on lug-centric wheels should center the wheel fine, and if the wheel stud grade & quality is high, I personally wouldn't worry that the vehicle weight is mainly supported by the studs. Shear strength of a grade 8 chrome-moly studs is incredibly high & should be no problem for street & mild offroad driving. Cyclic lateral stresses & strain on the studs, due to under-torqued nuts will lead to failure regardless of whether its hub or lug centric.

    Okay, I'll bite...I've always thought of HC rims for balancing rather than sturdiness. Am I missing something here? If the studs on the hub are perfect (as they should be from OEM), then a LC rim with proper lugs should be centered and balanced just fine.

    Well, that's the information I always thought correct since HC rims were made popular for racing vehicles and high speed. Our Tundras are land yachts and don't travel MUCH OVER 90-100MPH. LOL

    Thoughts?

    No thoughts. I've pretty much said all that needs to be be said in this thread I think.
