Do these wheels come with hubcentric rings? I just received my five wheels and there aren't any. I've seen that the bore hole of these wheels are 78 and stock bore is 71. Is that right? If I need rings, where can I get some? Thanks.

I placed two golf balls between the spare tire and the tail gate bumper. Takes up the gap quite well. I bought the Terra Flex hinge and carrier combo but still haven't installed.

Thank you for the post and for choosing DTD, nick!

We do not monitor the forums on Sundays (closed) and have limited coverage & hours on Saturday - so thank you for your patience.

Hub centric rings are not included with these 352 wheels as truck/SUV applications, in most instances, do not need them. Hub centric rings are available, though, in the 78-71.5 size. If you would like a set, shoot us a PM with your order confirmation number, name, and telephone number and we'll make sure you're taken care of.

Thank you again for your patience and for choosing DTD!

Is there any pros/cons to having HUB centric wheels/rings? Not exactly sure if their needed or not is all..

For normal driving conditions, there are no cons that I can think of, but for passenger cars with sensitive suspensions or lower profile tires, hub centric rings can make a difference. Here's a write-up I put together on the subject - truck/SUV applications typically have larger diameter tires which absorb any vibration due to "off-centerness" during installation.
__________________________________________________

We frequently see questions regarding hub centric rings so we decided to put this thread together to help answer some of these questions.

First, some terms you will need to know.
  • “Hub Centric Wheels”
Hub centric wheels have a center bore that matches the vehicle’s hub pilot.
  • “Non Hub Centric Wheels”
Non hub centric wheels have a larger center bore than the vehicles hub pilot.
What are hub centric rings?
Hub centric rings, typically made of plastic or metal, are designed and used to fill the gap between the hub pilot of the vehicle and the
center bore of the wheel.

Here's what the hub pilot, the center bore of a wheel, and hub centric rings look like:




What purpose do hub centric rings serve?
A hub centric ring’s sole purpose is to help align and center the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle’s hub pilot. Once the wheel assembly
is torqued, the hub centric ring’s job is complete. Hub rings help reduce and can eliminate wheel and tire vibrations caused during installation.
Do all wheels need hub centric rings?
No, not all wheels need hub centric rings.

Wheels that are “Hub Centric” for the vehicle will fit over the vehicles hub pilot without any gap. All original equipment and some aftermarket
wheels are hub centric but most aftermarket wheels are not hub centric.

Wheels that are "Non Hubcentric" can be mounted without hub rings if the proper time and care it taken to center the wheel on the vehicles
hub during installation.
I read that you have to run hub centric rings on non hub centric wheels or the lug nuts/studs will break do to extra load. Is this
true?
This is not the case. The vehicles hub pilot, studs, and lug nuts are not load bearing. What actually holds a wheel on the vehicle is force friction
that is created once the lug nuts are torqued to specifications set by the vehicle manufacturer.
How are hub centric rings sized?
Hub centric rings are sized by the outer diameter to inner diameter. The outer diameter is the hub bore of the wheel and the inner
diameter is the hub pilot on the vehicle.
Here's an example:

The hub pilot on a 2000 Nissan Altima is 66.1mm. The hub bore on the 17x7 Konig Unknown (a popular wheel for this application) is 73.1mm.
From looking at the hub pilot and hub bore specs, we know there is a 7mm. gap. To fill this gap a hub centric ring is used. The correct ring
size for this particular application is 73.1(Outer Diameter) to 66.1(Inner Diameter).

Which material is better, aluminum or plastic?
There is a lot of debate on which material is best and there are Pros and Cons to both. Here's our take on the subject.

If you live in an area where snow and road salt is present, or in an area around the ocean, plastic rings are best used. Unlike the metal
aluminum rings, the plastic rings will not oxidize and corrode.

If you push your vehicle to the limits and are constantly on the brakes, like when road racing for example, a metal hub centric ring is best
used. Contrary to what you may read, under heavy braking or racing situations, plastic rings can deteriorate from the heat being
generated. The heat can break down the plastic material making it brittle which can ultimately lead to the ring braking. Although rare
and under extreme conditions, the plastic ring can completely melt and deform.

If your vehicle is mainly used as a daily driver, pick one and go with it, either one will get the job done.

OK, so my tires are perfectly balanced on these new wheels. However, at between 65-75 there is a vibration that is not constant but about every few seconds all of the time I get that vibration from the Jeep. Am I to assume that I need the hub-centric rings or could it be something else. The only other thing that has been done is front puck levelers. TY in advance. Semper Fi.

Finally got them installed today. ( 285/70 ). I want to say it was a pleasure working with Matt who answered all my questions through this site and Derek when i called to order them. I went over to the local DT (Ocala FL) and setup an appointment for installing them I explained to them that i purchased through this site and worked with Matt, they said come back Friday and we will install them. No problem, went in today, showed the guy what i had and he writes it up and hands me the receipt and says No charge!! I left there after they had 4 guys installing my wheels in less than 40 minutes....

Got my wheels in Thursday after ordering them on Tuesday, and had the tires put on today. Two days to ship is awesome, and Matt was awesome to work with on this. Very quick to respond on any question I had, and made the process super easy. Thanks, Matt. I had the wheels wrapped in Falken Wildpeak AT3W 285/70/17, and I love it. Looks so much better!
