Do hub centric rings have to be exact?
Yes, you absolutely need to ensure any spacers mate with the wheel center bore and wheel hub precisely, either by being the correct diameter themselves or with hubcentric rings to make up the difference in size. While this may be the case, your aftermarket wheels may still need hub centric rings to fit properly.
What size wheel hub centric rings do I need?
The size of the centric rim depends on two things: the center bore of the rim and the outer diameter of the car’s wheel hub. For example, if the diameter of the wheel hub is 72.6 mm, and the wheel center bore is 74.1 mm, a centric ring with a diameter of 1.5 mm is needed in-between, so the right size is 74.1 – 72.6 mm.
Are all hub centric rings the same?
No. There is no such thing as a hub centric ring size calculator, you have to go old school and actually measure your wheel. Thousands of wheels are available with a variety of bore sizes. Running changes mean sometimes bore sizes can be different for the same wheel made at different times.
Are hub centric rings universal?

Can I drive without hub centric rings?
If you don’t use hub centric rings, you transfer the weight of the vehicle to the lug hardware, and the wheel studs will break. Fact is, the hub centric rings do not bear a load. The weight of the vehicle is actually supported by the friction between the wheel and its mounting surface on the axle.
How tight should hub centric rings be?
The most important thing is the tightness of the fit of the wheel on the hub. Whichever one gives a tight fit that doesn’t allow any movement of the wheel. My hubcentric rings fit very snug to the wheels, but are a close/accurate fit to the hubs.
How do I measure wheel hub size?
Place a tape measure across the face of the exposed wheel hub, which it protrudes out from the center of the drum brake assembly. Take the measurement across the front of the hub, which is the diameter of the hub. Make sure your tape measure intersects the center of the hub.
How do I know if my wheel is hub centric?
The easiest way to tell the difference between the two designs is to look at the hub of a hub and wheel assembly. If the hole in the center of the wheel fits snugly against the hub, then it is hub-centric. If there is a gap between the center hole of the wheel and the hub, then it is lug-centric.
What happens if I don’t use hub centric rings?
How are hub centric rings supposed to fit?
What is a wheel hub size?
The outer diameter is the hub bore, while the inner diameter is the diameter of the vehicle hub itself. For example: a hub-centric ring size of 73-67.1 would mean that the wheel center bore is 73 mm wide and the vehicle hub is 67.1 mm wide.
