Ok I will stand corrected but if i am willing to do so you should as well 2006_gtp!
So here it goes---partial quote from your post of December 6, 2022,, ,
"The weight of the car sits on the hub, not the studs. Having a wheel with a bore too big will also result in extra strain on the hub studs and could cause you big headaches down the road."
The weight of the car does "not" sit on the hub. Technically the weight of the car is held up by the friction of the wheel against the hub. The wheel studs hold the wheel against the hub thus holding up the weight of the vehicle. The center bore is more accurately used to ensure alignment of the wheel on the hub so that when the wheel is spinning at higher speeds it does not vibrate. Vibration is the enemy here. The vibration causes the problem at higher speed.
From the article that you asked me and others to read
"What happens if I don’t use a hubcentric ring?
When the hub is smaller than the center bore on the wheel, the wheel will not be technically centered. This causes vibration in many cases, especially around 50-60mph, that feels like a wheel imbalance. The case is, in fact, that the wheel is slightly off-center and not making a smooth rotation. With hubcentric rings, you fill that void and adapt the center bore of the wheel to the hub bore of the car."
I fail to see where the weight of the car is being held up by the center hub/ring as you stated in December. I would argue that it is the "vibration" that would causes the stress that you might refer to.
Healthy debate.... Hopefully and respectfully.
