If you stick to drag racing, I wouldn't worry about 4-lug hubs...as long as you torque them to spec...and they weren't abused by being under-torqued or over-torqued in the past.

If you get into drifting or autocross, I'd start thinking of changing to 5-lug hubs.

BTW, it's not just the number of lugs that is important. The diameter of the fastener circle makes a big difference when you are reacting lateral g-loads.

No worries with 4 lugs....there used to be all kinds of guys running 10s with slicks on 4 lugs without any issue.
