Default Question about center hub after installing new wheels

Sup all,

When installing my new wheels the guys at the tire place said now come your wheels didn't come with a center hub? They said the wheel manufacturer usually give you them with wheel purchase.

I called Work Wheels and they said no they do not. Anyone know where I can order some?

Thanks

Never heard of having to buy your own caps. Why don't you order them from work?

Most tire and wheel shops can get them. It's not a must have you can drive without them but get some and then put them on when they come in. They just help to prevent vibration since some wheels aren't hub centric

Exactly thanks. The tire place I went to didn't have any. Guess I'll wait for need for speed . Any estimate on how much these things go for?

Typicallly hub centric rims are about 25-50 dollars for a set of 4. I tend to get aluminum ones vs plastic so that my wheels stay vibration free. I have had bad plastic ones before that the car will shimmy a bit.
