It doesn't matter where the wheel flange is in relationship to the ends of the hub. What matters is where the C/L of the tire/wheel combination is in relationship to the two wheel bearings in the hub. The further out you place the tire/wheel, the more you increase the length of the moment arm, thus creating more leverage. You can have the wheel flange way out at the outer end of the hub, but have the tire/wheel combination way at the inside of the hub, and you will have a shorter moment arm than if you reversed the two and placed the wheel flange at the inside of the hub and the wheel way out past the outside end of the hub (dual wheels).
