    Trying to find rings for these wheels, specs state 3.18" center bore. I cannot find any rings for 3.18" or 80.772mm OD to 71.5mm ID anybody sourced these before?

    Guys just did a little more research and called Weld, I guess they are not hubcentric wheels, they are lugcentric and dont need rings. Just thought I would post if anybody else has this question

    This place builds custom hub rings. It's worth it. Just make sure you give the exact specification of what you need. That is a really really weird center bore size lol.

    If you don't get hubrings, you must find a shop that has a lug centric bolt plate to balance instead of the correct cone mounting. Otherwise you risk bad vibes. I hate that weld only builds lug centric wheels now. Love the wheels but the weight of the car is not supposed to be all on the studs. That's why all OEM wheels are hub centric.

    Okay so I had them balanced today with just the standard cone in the center, not a bolt plate to hold it on. If I get the rings the balancing will still be fine then??

    The issue I have seen concerning vibration issues is this.
    The centering cone replicates the wheel being hub-centric. So if it is balanced like that and the wheel is not hub centric it will actually cause the wheel and tire to vibrate because it is sitting differently on the hub. At least in most cases. There are bolt plates that we still have(probably not as available anymore since wheels are supposed to be hub centric), which are made with various bolt patterns and literally look like a hub and it has actual studs. You bolt it on with lug nuts and it centers the wheel on the plate with the lugs just like it is going to be installed on the car, and then you slide the plate/wheel onto the balancer spindle like that with no cone. This will ensure the best balancing possible for a lug centric wheel.

    Yes I understand the concept. So in theory, as long as I get the hubcentric rings, my balancing from today will be good to go since it was balanced using a cone to hold in place
