Lugs
 
Anyone know what determines how many lugs will be used on the wheels of cars and trucks?
I've noticed that the previous generation of Focii had four where the present one has five.[scratch]

The basic answer is load bearing.

More lugs have a greater clamping force between the wheel and hub, which will bear more load.
