    Hello
    I will be getting some new wheels, aftermarket with a offset of 35. Anyone think I will need hub centric rings?
    Thanks

    Yeah, it takes a week to custom drill the bolt pattern, 5 days to shipping agent, 2 weeks via freighter to Norway, the wheels come with the rings if I need them.

    Put aftermarket wheels on at least a dozen GM cars and trucks over 35 years..never used or had to use a hub centric ring of any kind

    Pretty careless

    GMs are hub centric not lug. You should always get hub rubs so the hub bears the weight not the studs....

    Re: New Aftermarket wheels

    remember that our SRX has it's beginnings as an Opel/Vauxhall/Holden...may be the difference in the bolt pattern...it is with my GTO made inAustralia...I have heard that many BMW's have similar if not the same pattern and offset...

    Re: New Aftermarket wheels

    If the wheels do need hub centric the rings will fit, if it does not the rings will not fit, I am referiing to the hub not the wheel fit, I assume

    If you are using lugnuts with shoulders, and who isn't, the studs are shouldering the load whether you like it or not. The hub is there primarily to support and locate the rotor. Before there were two piece hub and rotor assemblies, hub centric wheel adapters didn't exist because there was no "hub" to get centric about. Nothing wrong with using hub centric adapters but many decades of history has shown they are not necessary.

    If you buy a brand of wheels that the manufactor recommends use of a centric ring then get them.

    Man I disagree with that, your info is sort of correct but its not good information or advise IMO.

    And why is it that not one person answered his question or knows what he is asking?

    He asked about offset and a ring, these two things have nothing to do with each other. The hub bore of the wheel is not the offset, if the hub bore is bigger than the stock bore then yes use a ring for best performance centering. Now you said 35mm offset so are you asking if you need a spacer? At 35mm it depends on the width of the wheel but not likely.

    So how about you ask what you want to know

    Re: New Aftermarket wheels

    Thanks for the reply. The offset I am not concerned about as it is enough to not interfere with brakes, like you said it will depend on the bore of the whole on the wheel and the hub on the disk, if the hole is bigger on the wheels I will need the rings if not then i will be OK, I did not need hub centric per say on my 300C, but the rings took the slight vibration away in the steering wheel. But since I bought the wheels as a set I got the rings for free so I will be OK. My question in the first thread was asking if anyone used aftermarket wheels with rings, this was before the company offered me the rings at no charge, I was checking to see if I needed to order a ring set
