Are Stock 1969 GM Rims Centric?

Hello all, I have been reading all the posts on this but still confused as this is actually a new term to me (never heard of centric rims before). Basically the backround/question I have is this...I have a 1969 Camaro with the stock 14x7 ss rims that I am removing to repaint so I just purchased some used 1999 Chevy S10 (15 inch) rims to put on in the meantime but noticed the bore size on the S10 rims is larger and will not be resting on the hub, is this a problem?

Also, as in my title, are factory 1969 14x7 SS rims centric? (just good to know info for me...).

Thanks, Dave

Look in this thread. I posted a few pics. You will see the dif between hub centric and not.

Stock rims are hub centric.

I believe the term you are referring to is Hubcentric (when the rim centers on the hub).There is another term called Lugcentric (When the rims center on the lugs). If your rims are not tight againsed the hub they are concidered Lugcentric.

You should be fine!

Remember,I'm not making this stuff up!

Re: Are Stock 1969 GM Rims Centric?

Thanks for the replies guys. I guess you can not tell by actually looking at a rim to know the difference. My main concern was if the lug nuts/studs alone can bear the weight or if the hub was also required for displacing weight. I assume the lugs can and it is more of a vibration issue (centered rim) than anything else.

Thanks again.
