U can order fancy metal ones from motorsport tech, they'll probably be the nicest ones you can get but IIRC it's $100 if not more a set.

There website is pretty shitty too so I'm not going to check for you lol, I've ordered spacers from them before and they have really good customer service, the guy called me and explained some complications and gave me a better deal on a more conservative set.

You don't NEED hubcentric rings. I run all sorts of mixtures of wheels on my 3 cars (all 4x100) and if you torque them in the right order and do two first to center the wheel with the taper on the lugs you're fine. I have zero isses with vibrations.

That is right. If you carefully install and torque the wheels properly, the lugs will center the wheel. However for the not so mechanically inclined people, it may be a good idea to purchase the centric rings.

If they're stock VW rims and you're trying to mount them on a Honda, have fun finding a ring that's 0.5mm thick. 56.1mm vs. 57.1mm.

Not sure if OP still needs them now, but I do have a set that I bought but never installed. PM me if you're interested. (they're plastic ones if that matters)

i got mine from Big O tires and it was like $50 for 4, aluminum ones. For installation add never seize or antiseize, then mount then inside the center bore and over the hub bore of the car when you put ur wheels on. Big O carried ones for my honda civic 2006 which had a bore of 64.15mm

I run all kinds of blends of wheels on my 3 vehicles (all 4x100) and if you torque them in the right alignment and manage two first to center the wheel with the taper on the lugs you're fine. I have none isses with vibrations.

If you mindfully establish and torque the wheels correctly, the lugs will center the wheel. However for the not so mechanically inclined persons, it may be a good concept to buy the centric rings

how can i get rid of the noise? im not sure if its tire noise.. it sounds like a skytrain speeding up when i go up to 90-100kms on the highway. the vibrations are gone but the sound is still there. when i put my stock rims with stock all seasons back on, there is no sound at all. are my rims too heavy?

Don't listen to these retards. They'll end up killing you and people around you.


WOW, theres so much fail in this thread.....a lot of false infomation.

If your wheels do not have hub centric rings that fit, you end up putting the mass load on to your lugs and not on to the hub/lugs.

Dangerous as fuck. Wheel bolts breaks. True Story. I've had it happen. Dont be stupid.
