Wheel Spacers Hubcentric and Wheel Centric

I'm starting to give up finding 5x110 wheels that fit my price range/style demands so I've decided to go with wheel adapters for 5x4.5

Anyways the company I'm buying from offers a wheel adapter that is hubcentric to the car, but there is an option to get wheel centric as well. I've had 2 piece adapters from my old Z and they worked fine, but has anyone tried this kind of a setup? Most you see on ebay are neither wheel or hub centric.

The problem is I don't have wheels yet so I don't know what kind of hub to get, would the smart thing to do be to get wheel centric but with a smaller CB to fit hubcentric rings on that adapter so that it'll work with any wheel? Or just save some money and leave it be with only hubcentric?

usually when spacers are hubcentric, they are already wheel centric. so that your new wheels will meet the spacer's hub ring as it would with your hub.



see the picture, the spacer has a big ass hole in the middle for you to put the new hubcentric rings onto it so the spacer fits centered with your hub. the hubcentric ring's bore size would be the same size as your wheel hub so your new wheels will fit center with the extended hubcentric ring lip. all you need to do is find wheels with the right bore size. (and most wheels have hub rings for them too to get it centered with the hub.)

Those are the style of spacers I used to have,

The stock CB size of my car is 65.1 I'm getting adapters to fit completely different aftermarket wheels or maybe factory toyota, nissan etc wheels of completely different bolt pattern, Sorry if I wasn't being clear.
If I get a hubcentric ring that is 65.1 I know for example I wouldn't be able to fit some factory IS250 wheels that are 60.1 CB

The company I'm getting from are selling a One piece hubcentric that looks like this

They can also make a One Piece hubcentric/wheelcentric that is similar to the eibach pro kit spacers I already have. These are $100 more in total than the first ones

They also make the ones that you posted also custom dimensions

The key is that everything I'm looking at is Custom So I can have any wheel bore, Hub bore, bolt pattern, and thickness that I desire

Ic... then i guess you should get it hubcentric (65.1) then get a smaller size wheel centric bore size for your future wheels. So that when you do get wheels, you can slap a hub ring on the wheels to match your wheel centric bore size.

i had a pair of hub centric rings made by a machinist. i drew up the specs for him, and got them made. the problem with buying most regular hub centric rings is that they are only about 9mm thick. this is fine if u are slapping the aftermarket or non-designated wheel to ur stock hub, but they are not deep enough if u are going to be running an adapter spacer.
