Can rim shops make hub-ring adapters?

Hello,

I’m not sure if some of you have noticed or not, but the
Torq Thrust II 18x10 wheels that have a center bore of 83.06 cost around $200, while the ones that have a 72.6 center bore cost $450. A very clever marketing scheme, not to my advantage.

I know there are hub-ring adapters, but there are none online that can adapt 72.6 to 83.06. So my question is,

Can a rim shop custom make a hub-ring that can adapt 72.6mm to 83.06mm?

Thank you!

The majority of the TT wheels have the bigger centers. Why the need for the smaller center bore?

Thank you for the fast reply!

I’m desperately trying to find the Torq Thrusts in 18x9.5 or 18x10 with a 72.6 center bore. The only ones I see have a 83.06 center bore 😞

I can’t have my wheels only lug centric, they need to be hubcentric as well 😞

They're called hub centric rings. http://us.hubcentric-rings.com/sizes/?src=intpopup

As you can see, there’s nothing for 80.3 to 72.60 😞

Well now you know they're pretty common and what to look for. Maybe contact them?

That’s my last option. It’ll take a while, which is why I posted to find out if anyone knows if rim shops can do the same thing? (As opposed to ordering online)

FWIW, I needed long hub centrics and I had a machine shop make them. I needed to space out my wheels AND brake rotors which necessitated the long hub centrics.
