No, hub rings got your hub and the center of the wheel to keep the wheel on center. Taking away wheel hop and giving the best possible ride

Why would you be interested in those, AM probably did not have or know what you were talking about because their wheels are hub centric specific for our application.

Vibration problem where and what? Have you tried getting your wheel and tires road balanced to see if you are off there? Not a regular balance but road balanced?

No I have not it's not a solution to a wheel that is not centered on a hub. All balancers cone from the hub, the hub is centered when the balance happens. Take that wheel and put it on the hub of the car off center and guess what, you're gonna have wheel hop causing a shake in the car. My tire tech didn't say anything about my wheel being a fit for my hub, he did say, get a set of rings. And asked how come they didn't come with? I has no answer for that except to call AM and they had less of an answer than I did. Your suggestion is a not a bad one, just not the solution IMO. If I didn't have a glass *** I'm sure the vibration would go unnoticed by most. But I'm hypersensitive to this ****.

AMs wheels are designed do fit the Mustang hub. There aren't gonna be any hub rungs that fit, your tire tech sure sounds like he didn't check anything, it's pretty easy to tell when a wheel should need hub rings. Get a road force balance like Grumpy suggested. That is the best balance you will be able to get. When does the vibration happen? All the time, just on acceleration, or just on decel?

Well I was thinking the same thing, if he called AM that tells me he got wheels from AM, and all the wheels are hub specific for our applications. You actually have to bump the tire at 3 and 9 to pop it off the hub when you dismount the wheel. So someone telling him he needs hub rings was smoking alittle too much when he looked at his car. And if a hub was not round, sure as hell would not be able to install the wheel if the wheels came from AM. I did reply back to him after his post as he sounded alittle sure of himself in his answer back to me.

You're kidding me right? a hub specific wheel is NOT going to have a 2mm gap between hub of the car and the center bore of wheel, yes, my wheels from AM have a 2mm gap between hub and center bore of wheel, I don't know how qualified you are to speak on such matters because you've dealt with what, 1 or 2 sets of wheels in your life time? I've been managing tire shops for over 24 years now and sold and dealt with hundreds of sets. oh, and the tire tech "smoking" something funny? lmao! really dude? I asked my question in this forum because I thought there would be knowledgeable people and or feedback and a quick easy lead on where to get the rings. my bad... what i got was some pompous *** floating an opinion of wich he knows nothing about.

I don't know if you work for AM or what your story is, but their wheels are simple one piece cast crap and far from a well machined piece of quality. Theres nothing wrong with that, but sometiimes cheap wheels need a little help, like hub centric rings. I ordered a couple sets based off the actual measurements and when I get the one that works, i'll post that part number for anyone else who might be experiencing the same problem .

I've mounted plenty of tires on wheels and plenty of wheels onto cars, I work for a Honda dealer. If you feel like making yourself look like an *** then go right ahead. AM gets their wheels from Wheel Replicas if I remember right, the only wheel I could see them selling that might require rings would be the TSW Nurburgring or some similar wheel like that.

So here's my question to you, where's your pictures showing AM wheels require a hub ring?
