      I need hub centric rings on my stock gls 17" rims and i know the wheel bore is 57.1mm but every ring I look at has two measurements and I can only seem to find one. So which exact hub centric ring is the right one for my car? Thanks for looking!

      every ring has 2 measurements:

      inner diameter = hub bore
      outer diameter = wheel bore

      so the inside of the hole should be 57.1mm which is what will fit onto your hub. the outside of the ring fits into the wheel and should match up with the bore size of the wheel.


      IF your wheels are 57.1mm, then you dont need hub centric rings because theyre made for your car

      going along with clean pg's info:

      if you have aftermarket wheels, you may need to contact the manufacturer of the wheels to get the bore diameter. I had this issue with my jeep and once i had both measurements, I was able to find the hub centric ring to find my application.

      I wish i had the website for you, but if you google it, you will find it.

      rings will fix the problem then. figure out the center bore of the spacer and get a hub centric ring with an outer diameter that matches your spacer and that also has a 57.1mm inner diameter.
