They are on. No problems for now (installed & tightened wheels on thruster). But problems (vibrations) can appear after the first removal and installation of wheels. If they appear, i`m looking forward to add spacers with different (in and out) DIA

You want a ring that will adapt your 66.1mm hubs to 66.5mm wheel hubs? So the overall diameter difference is 0.4mm? And since this is a ring the thickness of your new ring will be 0.2mm??? Am I missing something?

I dont think you need one for that size, but you'll find out after putting on the wheels.

I think 0.4mm is enough to cause problems. Every hubcentric ring I have used is very snug to the wheel and the hub. If I were you, I would spend a lot of time mounting the wheels, making sure the lugs get tightened by hand very gradually in a star pattern, before you torque them down.

Uhmm....that's less than 8 thousandths of an inch. Pull out your feeler gauges and look at what that amounts too. That's only a few times more than what main bearing clearances are for lots of engines!

hey, I can mount wheels without the hubcentric rings and get it on center less than 1/2 mm. The problem is vibration at speed.

The shop will be doing it as i won't be...

There are no rings for a .4MM difference so i am going to have to mount them without it..hell i could put one piece of tape around it and there is .4mm

so what mm difference would warrant the use of hub centric rings? Also, is there a way to check that on the specs of the wheels? Getting ready to buy some 19's soon and need to determine if I have to factor in the cost of rings as well.

If the center bore of your wheels does not match the hub size, you need hubcentric rings. If you are buying new wheels, I would try to get the retailer to throw in the proper hubcentric rings. I know Tirerack does this as standard practice, as well as throwing in the proper lug nuts.

^ make sense, I'll keep that in mind when I buy so I don't have to purchase them. Seems like lots of place give you a wheel price then beat you down with all the extras including shipping! What is considered not matching? 65, 67 close enough? I actually looked at a set today that was 73, seems pretty far off...
