EVERY wheel by EVERY manufacturer on any modern car/truck is hub-centric. Yes, there's no load (normally) but shear forces when the occur are taken by the center of the wheel (strongest part) and not by the lugs/nuts. The lugs/nuts are designed for lateral forces - but lugs can flex and bend with shear forces when the rim is not hub-centric.
The original conversation was referring to hub centric rings and aftermarket wheels, which are primarily NOT hub-centric. This is so they don't have to manufacturer tens of different hub sizes to fit each and every possible vehicle. There is no load on hub centric rings.

Nice sturdy look. Have a question since you have a BB. Is there space for the front facing camera if switching to a BB grill? It looks like there's a gap between the letters so it would work.

Looks good dude!! But It looks like maybe too much positive camber in the rear. Maybe adjusting the rear track bar will help bring in more negative camber or its just the big wheel offset and nothing you can do which over time may wipe out your wheel barings.

Here are some pics of mine with 37x12.5R17 and 3 inch lift. No rubbing in forward or reverse.

Ps-does anyone know if our broncos wheel hubs are Hubcentric or not? It feels like they are when the bronco is under throttle going over little bumps. Or it could just be me lol..

That -12 offset with 35s is such a a proper stance! Can’t wait! I’ve been waiting to put my Rays10s with the same offset!
