Hub Centric Rings..

I need some new hub centric rings for my after market rims. The shop lost one, and another is cracked. Does anyone know the size of the hub on our cars? The rims I have are 17x7 Konig Reign's. No longer produced, but I'm sure I can still get rims for them. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hello

I couldn't find a set for my wheels. They were factory Explorer steel wheels
They fit the new Mustang hubs but not the T-bird hubs.(too big)

If you find them Please post where Here.

most of the wheel makers have specific rings for their wheels

you can usually get the shop to contact the wheel company and they'll send ya some

shop lost mine and AR sent a new set for free

Well I didn't realize it was missing until I took the wheels off, which was awhile after it had been to the shop. I did send an inquire to Konig asking if they had the ones I need. Hopefully I will hear back from them soon.

Well, haven't heard anything back from them. Suppose I can try the local wheel shop and see what they say.

I was looking for new items for my car and came across this Click here I have personally used many different wheel combo's on many different car's and have never used a plastic ring on them. The only thing I can see that ring helping with is to hold the wheel centered to install the lugs.

I've come into this world with nothing and still manage to have some of it left.

That is why I have them, for installation. With the small opening for the lug nuts (I have to use a spark plug socket with the hex end and a lug wrench on that) it was tough to get them started without the rings, but I never felt any vibrations or anything prior to getting the rings.

I'm telling you www.bolt-onz.com. Right down in roslyn. Whole rack of them in the shop. The owners work the counter 99.9 percent of the time and are very helpful.

good find, they have 72, 73 and 74mm. Plastic is OK as it will have metal to support it all the way around on the inside and outside.

Yes, I know John. I was looking at their site last week, and even submitted a question but never heard back. When do I have the time to stop by though? I;m not sure they are open on the weekends. I have of today from work and plan on stopping by there after the dentist.
