Are these new rims in the 17X7.5 size hubcentric for the WRX?

Thanks

Hubcentricity(sp?) is one of the most over analyzed things on this forum.

READ: it's not as important as you think.

Do you realize that many many rims are not hubcentric for other cars and work just fine? It's all about the proper torque sequence.

Hand tighten it off the gournd, then torque down while on the ground in a star pattern.

yes the BBS RGR is hubcentric ..... and yes it is very important because the center hub of a car is designed to support the weight of the vehicle ... a lug centric wheel is relying on the lug hardware to support the weight of the vehicle and lug studs have a very low shear strength, comparably speaking
