I did some research before just going with Centric last year. According to posts I found, Timken sources some of their stuff from other manufactures as well, so you may well buy a centric and a timken and get hubs from the same production line.

Didn't think paying the extra for the timken was worth it. Living in Tx I didn't have a rust problem and the front hubs are pretty easy given that. Figured I could re-do them if the centrics didn't last.

Update...completed the job using Centric hubs, and it went fine. Getting the old hubs out was, as some have said, not exactly a walk in the park especially considering the five CNY winters they've been through. Didn't have a Hub Buster or other special tool, but there was enough room available to get some swing with a big ol' hammer from the back side to get'em knocked out. New hubs, rotors, and pads installed and feeling great.

Bad news... Hankook Ventus tires showed an insane amount of treadwear and scalloping on the inner surfaces...only got about 15k miles out of them. No track stuff..just spirited (but responsible, meaning some hard cornering but no drifting or burnouts) daily driving. Typical? Alignment advised after new hub installation?

I would just do it anyways and throw in some crash bolts to get some negitive camber

The OEM hub bolts are held in with blue loctite, I'd recommend using it on assembly. I suggest using a 6 point socket, you will need a 3" extension to get it in there.
It might not have been the case in the past I guess but my new OEM hubs came with pre-mounted studs.

They pretty much all do. Pounding out the old to pound in the arp studs is part of the fun!
