    From what I understand, they are plastic washers that center the rim correctly when installed. The washer is usually part of the rim sale if needed. Maybe someone else can add to this but that is what I was told when I was going to change rims on my former car.

    Hubcentric just means that the center of the rim is bored to a precise diameter to fit the hub, this is used to ensure the rim is centered on the hub properly which eliminates vibration on large diameter rims, as opposed to the studs being used to center the rim. To ensure proper fitment you should run hubcentric rims on your '07 with the centerbore being 78.3mm and a lug pattern of 6x139.7, hope this helps. :great:

    G.M. went to hubcentric rims for the '99 body style change, and also made the 2wd and 4wd able to use the same rim whereas before '99 the 2wd used a 5 lug pattern and 4wd used a 6 lug patern :glasses:
