Anyone explain why the new Borah's are hub Centric but none of the other AEV offerings are hub Centric any longer?

I'm guessing the rear calipers are about 3/16 closer to the wheels then the fronts.
How would you rate the combo? I have the Mopar BBK, and was thinking of balancing the rear with the Dynatrac, but wasn't sure how noticeable it would be. What wheels are you running now?

AEV used to list that as a feature on the website, but has since taken it off. I'm assuming that means that they aren't anymore.

Do you have any dates on the "black" version? And is there any list I can get on to get this when available?

I read on wrangler forum a guy in Utah bought a set of borahs and was shorted 4 bolts. He is trying to join this forum but has not been able to. He said he has tried reaching out to aev to get the bolts but has not had any success. He posted photos of his rims they look great he painted the bead locks red. I told him I would post this up so a moderator would see it and approve his registration​ on the forum. He said they balanced up great.

Waiting patiently.... anxiously, but patiently.
I think that might be an oxymoron, anxiously patient?

I noticed several posts back that Dave painted his Borah's.

I recently purchased the machined Borah's and wanted to know if that is still correct for this version as well?

Can the beadlock rings themselves be painted or powder coated?
