Hubcentricity again, anyone know of any ring suppliers?

I had some 15" wheels on my car the fit the bosses the front and rear perfectly. I needed different offsets, so I bought some "Corvette" 15" wheels from Wheel Vintiques. The offsets are just what I needed, but the bores are larger, is that the "Corvette" difference? So, my wheels are being located by the lugnuts. I know on modern cars, that's a terrible thing to do, especially front wheel drives. I'm guessing it has to affect these cars somewhat, too, huh?

If the larger bore is a standard size, and my bosses are a standard size, there ought to be some pre-existing off-the-shelf hubcentric rings. Anyone know of a supplier who does that?

It's important to remember that hub rings only center the wheel on the pilot hub.

Your vehicles pilot hub is not load bearing so as long as the lug nuts are torqued down using the correct tightening pattern for your bolt pattern, hub rings aren't necessary. They are however, convenient.

If you can get us the hub size on the wheels and the hub bore on your axles (should be 70.7mm), we can check for any applicable ring sets. We carry most sizes for only $15.00 which includes all 4 rings and FREE shipping.

Give us a call at 1.888.459.4080 and anyone of our agents would be happy to assist.
Anyone know why they don't make them hub-centric like they used to?
To fit more vehicle applications :thumbsup:
We appreciate your continued support gibbons!

I agree, every little bit helps and the hub rings certainly help center the wheel.

If you can get us the hub sizes I'll check for any applicable rings.
