It is. They are lug centric wheels. Look at your hubs (car or bike) and if there is a protruding lip in the center around the opening then its hub centric. The rim will have a corresponding machined reverse lip in it. So the center of the hub aligns the rim, not the lugs. If you look at the hub (car or bike) and there is no protruding lip in the center, then by default its lug centric and uses the lugs to align the rim. Hub centric is always better as it takes the load, and shock to the rim with the lugs merely holding it in place. Lug centric is not as beneficial as the lugs take the load and all shock. Not a biggie on our bikes, but on cars, especially 4X4 (Ford Raptor) its needed to be hub centric to prevent shearing lugs on hard landings.
