Wheels on my DP: hub or stud pilot?

Thanks to a car that wouldn't move until I did, I ended up driving over a 6" or so tall cement divider/curb going into a grocery store parking lot. Murphy's law works, so rather than just driving OVER the curb, I ended up with the tire barely on the curb, nearly parallel to the long edge -- and then slid off. The ensuing drop just about totally emptied all the cupboards. But nnnoooo, that wasn't enough to suit Murphy... As the tire slid off the curb, the right inside rim caught it, and bent the rim bead up about 2", flattening the tire instantly. I haven't had a chance to look close, but what I could see, the tire looks to be okay. If not, I'll get another, it is what it is...

I can get a used inner steel rim pretty cheap via some friends, but I need to know what might be on my rig- 2000 Allegro Bus/Freightliner chassis- stud-pilot wheels, or hub-pilot wheels? (22.5")

for those who have no idea what I'm talking about (I barely do!), this webpage explains nicely:
Hub Pilot vs. Stud Pilot Buy Truck Wheels

My free time vs the motorhome being 40 miles away at the moment, it would really help if I knew what type of wheels to ask for!

Thanks in advance, any help appreciated!

Ask Freightliner what you have. I'm guessing hub pilot.

Almost for certain a hub centric wheel. I think generally you only find stud centric wheels on smaller vehicles. Your center hole in the wheel needs to be the exact proper size.

Every DP we've had (since 2000) has had hub piloted wheels.

Can you pop the center hub cap? I can on mine. Hubcentric.

I was kind of assuming hub piloted--

Many thanks!

-- and as it turns out, a good friend is getting a shop he deals with to change out everything for me for a good price, I just have to limp the motorhome to the shop on 5 wheels (about 3 miles), so I won't be 'buying blind' after all!

Thanks again all!
