did you miss my post #2? lol. I thought it sounded high too until you actually see them, they are a thing of beauty. I figured it turned my $100 rims into $125 rims.

The outfit is motorsports-tech.com and all their work is custom. I could not find any off the self centric rings that were an exact fit for my application.
These look pretty good.

I have harped many times about not wanting anything to do with non-hubcentric wheels. As someone said, "OEM's apparently think it's pretty important", that's because it is.
Wheel vibration can be the source of major problems, and it's almost impossible to prevent without a proper fit on your hub. I've experienced this first hand with wheels that weren't hubcentric to the vehicle I had them on. The plastic rings are about worthless, because they pinch, bend, or crease if you put the wheel on incorrectly, and you're screwed. It's probably the main reason I chose AEV wheels. But Rugged Ridge also makes a hubcentric wheel for JK's.

jadmt has a setup there that I would consider, if I really wanted some wheels that weren't hubcentric. Close is not good enough, it has to be perfect.

They are very well made with a very percise fit. I looked at some plastic ones and could not bring myself to use them. Not saying they are not better then nothing but I just felt better using what I used. Over the life of the vehicle the cost is not that great.

Follow-up. After some surgery (to remove the outer lip), they fit perfectly.
