HUB BORE/CENTRE BORE

HUB BORE/CENTRE BORE

Centre bore is the hole at the middle of the wheel on the hub of the car. Aftermarket wheels are manufactured in huge numbers, they are not made with any vehicle’s centre bore in mind, hence hub rings are always recommended. Most custom and aftermarket wheels are created with a centre opening that will fit a variety of automobiles. Hub rings ensure that there are no fitment issues between wheels and hubs when fitting with each other.

The 3 Types

  1. Vehicle Hub Centric Wheels
    • which mean that the hub bore is machined out exactly to the size of the exact vehicle bore.
  2. Multi-Application Wheels
    • which means that the wheels are machined out to a larger bore so they will fit a variety of vehicles. In this application you would use a centre ring to reduce the bore to match the vehicle.
  3. Lug Centric Wheels
    • which means the wheel is designed to use the lug nuts to centre the wheel and not the hub. The most common example of a Lug Centric Wheel is a steel wheel.
