How To: Grinding Tabs for GM Wheels
Last Updated: Feb 24, 2015
I cannot believe that in how many years of this thread that no one has realized or posted that the hub (or tabs in this case ) are ONLY there to center the wheel during mounting, they carry NONE of the weight of the vehicle - the pressure created by the lugs being tightened against the hub is what carries the weight of the vehicle - any idea how many production vehicles are non hub centric? LOTS.
Don't believe me?

I'm new to this site and got some 17" gm wheels I'm definitely going with grinding the tabs.
Thanks for the write up, great help. lots of work to do today.
